What? Who told you that you needed a vm to host a bot? Regardless of what operating system you use, python will work, and even if python wasn't available for your operating system, repl would be. Yes, you could host an instagram bot on repl, although your uptime might not be 100%.

Sorry im new here so that would mean, just creating a bot would mean i would need to upgrade my account? and that would be because of storage usage would be over 100MB? @AllAwesome497

@BrandonsTattoos No you do not need to upgrade your account, you just need to create a repl and code your bot

However I don't know if bots are authorized by Instagram

@abc3354 oh instagram has bots because i get messages all the time from them. i just think that its a great marketing tool.

@Miner36number2 no not at all. i was wondering am i headed in the right directions trying to create a instagram bot using this plaform. like for example i read i need a plugin call chromedriver to create the bot, my question is can repl.it platform be my only source i use to complete this task?

@BrandonsTattoos Oh yeah, repl.it supports chromedriver.

@SixBeeps which chromedriver can i use im on mac using repl.it

SixBeeps (2576)

@BrandonsTattoos It doesn't matter if you're running Mac because Repl.it runs Linux. As for which chromedriver, you could use any one you wanted to really. I've seen a lot of people use Selenium, though.
