Today i’ve written a new autopost’s class which allows to connect all Instagram accounts. The class is called Instagram_insights and was developed for mobile clients. Current Instagram_insights class allows to connect only Instagram business accounts and get insights/reply to comments. The new class allows to connect all Instagram accounts but it don’t supports insights and comments because is based on Instagram api, not Facebook Graph. The configuration is simply, you have to register a new client here https://www.instagram.com/developer/clients/manage/ Copy the Client ID/Client Secret and paste in Midrub Admin -> Networks -> Instagram Insights The callback used in the created Client should be https://www.yourwebsite.com/social/user/callback/instagram_insights (replace www.yourwebsite.com with yours). Then you have to ask for review because your app will be in sandbox mode. Please[…]
A new update is available for the Midrub Android app. The update is available by request and contains several improvements. Improvements: Added support for groups with accounts. If user has enabled the groups mode in his Midrub’s account, will see groups even on Android. Adjusted navigation buttons to have correct position. Added clipboard copy support. Now you can compose a post from your desktop browser and after you just will paste on Android Instagram. Same way has Hootsuite and Buffer.
As i written several days ago, i’ve added support for Facebook live videos. The option is called Facebook Live instead Facebook Pages, Facebook Groups or Facebook. This option allows to create live videos with pre recorded videos on Facebook Pages. Videos can be published in real time or scheduled. Title and description fields are supported. The problem with live videos on Facebook is in permission. I don’t know if Facebook will approve permissions for pre recorded videos. You can try yourself to get them. Without permissions is possible to publish pre recorded videos only if user is a tester, developer or administrator in Facebook application. And if you have an application created after 1 may 2018, the application should be[…]
After many tests i was ready to upload videos as live in Facebook profile and page. From friday 31/5 i can provide the class which will allow your users to share videos as live on Facebook Pages. I can provide even for Facebook Profiles, but there is required the permission publish_video https://developers.facebook.com/docs/live-video-api/getting-started/ which i doubt Facebook will approve it with pre recorded videos. If you want this feature, prepare your server for FFMPEGG. I will check to add same even for Youtube.
A new update is available for Midrub Inbox. From 30 april 2019 the permission read_page_mailboxes is deprecated and can’t be requested. You can use it with Midrub Inbox until the end of this year. In the new Midrub Inbox version i’ve adapted it to get the pages_messaging permission requested by Midrub Inbox.

The Midrub’s Api follows the OAuth 2.0 rules but isn’t based on external libraries. To use the Midrub’s api, you have to create a new application in Admin -> Settings -> Apps(Api Section). Each Api Application should have a name, other fields like Application Redirect Url, Cancel Redirect Url and Application’s permissions are optionally. You have to add redirect url and cancel url only if you’re using the Midrub’s api to create an application where user should approve the permissons of your application. If the application is based on username/password login, redirect url isn’t required. The field Application’s permissions allows you to select by default which permissions will be able to use the users. In the screenshot above you can[…]
