Quick and Dirty Instagram API implementation

Last Friday I spent the morning looking into the Instagram API thinking it would be cool to have our members be able to share their photos on the site via instagram. So this is a quick and dirty implementation but it works. There are a couple of things to keep in mind though. Instagram has a limit on the number of calls you can make to the API per hour which is set at 5000 so if you have a really busy site you may need to look into another method but for most sites this should be sufficient. The other thing is at this point I am not using the pagination feature of the API so I will only be showing the last 60 images uploaded with out tag. I will be writing the pagination code soon and will add it in another post.
