Integrated Recipes Module
« on: October 23, 2007, 11:03:50 pm »
I'll start by saying that I have rarely been as excited about something as I was when I first saw the demo video for LMCE. I anxiously await it's further development and maturity.

Some time ago there was development on a plugin for MythTV called MythRecipe. The progress of that plugin has all but died, but I believe the idea is grand and would be well suited for LMCE. It's the next step in having an LMCE system in the kitchen: recipes at your fingertips.

Recipe searches (by name, type, ingredients, etc.)
Digital cookbooks
Shopping list generation (and printing?)
Any other spectacular feature I can't think of right now...

Perhaps somebody will agree with me and the development can begin. I can't help much as I am hardly a programmer let alone a brilliant programmer like those that have brought Pluto and LMCE this far.

Once again, thanks for such a wonderful system with such great potential.

That has to be one of the coolest ideas ever. I thought about building a system for my kitchen just for that. If LMCE could integrate that feature I would be thrilled. I too would help except I don't know the first thing about programming.

Sounds like that could be achieved trough linking to a website trough the built in link section.
If you know a website? same with weather and news.
You could make your own recipe website.
Not really a LMCE programming job if one opts for such a sollution? more a webprogrammer job.

maybe they could be worked in with the mythtv recipe plugin.

Okay, at least I know I'm not the only one that likes the idea...

I just ran across Gourmet http://sourceforge.net/projects/grecipe-manager/ and here http://grecipe-manager.sourceforge.net/ and it seems to be pretty close to what I have in mind.

From the site:
"Gourmet Recipe Manager is a recipe-organizer for GNOME that generates shopping lists and allows rapid searching of recipes. It imports mealmaster & mastercook files and exports webpages & other formats. Gourmet uses python, gtk and metakit."

Now, how to integrate this into LMCE...

i like the idea of using a database and barcode scanner to identify what you have in the house still and what needs to be bought for your recipe. maybe that could be worked into mysql in lmce?

I'll second that...

Of course if Gourmet would work then that wouldn't be quite as necessary, unless you are doing a mass inventory of your kitchen. I know that I don't have enough food in my house for that to be a problem though.

My thought exactly, well, except for the "you" part. I'm doubt seriously that I could make any plugin for LMCE as my education sits right now. Not even close to ready for that one. I don't think.

I really like this idea! Started off reading the thread just out of curiosity, but am now sold on the idea! I plan to put a MD in my kitchen, and think that this would be a really neat idea!

I started reading this thread and I was thinking "what the hell? recipes on LMCE???" but no i am converted! i really like the idea of LMCE doing recipes and kitchen inventory!

I guess this is pushing things down the "smart home" road, ie. I can check what food i have in while at work and see what I need to buy on my way home to make a particular dish. As well as using a barcode reader if you ordered you food online then you could import your shopping list from that. maybe even LMCE could be used to order your food online??

I really hope this gains some momentum on LMCE.

anyone still have interest in this and an ability to do any work towards it?

I'm too busy to work on it, but I am interested in using it. I'm also curious whether there's any RFID products for tracking the contents of fridge and cupboards. Hell, are there any automated devices that will actually process the food into meals with a minimum of human intervention? Like a breadmaker, but more complicated, and controllable by a PC?
