Download Instagram Stories (discontinued)
Download Instagram Stories thanks to the instaview.me website
NOTE: instaview.me also stopped working, and I'm not interested in looking for a new site every few months, specially when now there are excellent alternatives like u/mvan231's Instagram Media Saver. Download this shortcut only if you want a (non-working but) simple example of scrapping a website with Shortcuts.
I was looking into downloading Instagram Stories for someone and found
storiesig.com, a website that did most of the work. I decided to make a shortcut with it, and it was relatively easy to do. It may serve as an example to learn Shortcuts, so I have added comments in the non-trivial steps.
That website stopped working in May 29th, so in version 1.2.0 I switched to
instaview.me, a similar site.
