A little while ago, I blogged about an application I was writing for my cooking recipes.
I have now gotten to a point where I will declare it version 0.1. The release can be found on a KDE Download server near you: https://download.kde.org/unstable/kookbook/kookbook-0.1.0.tar.xz.mirrorlist.
As written back then, Kookbook is basically displaying markdown, parses semi-structured markdown for ingredients and tags and allows accessing the recipes that way. Kookbook also offers to open a system editor for editing the content.
This is the “normal” view:
Support for images in recipes has also been added since previous blog post.
Since the may blog post, I have also written a little more basic touch-friendly user interface. It does not offer the full set of desktop features, namely it doesn’t offer to launch an editor for you, and it also only allows to access the recipes thru their names, not thru all the other ways of finding recipes. Though the last part is up to discussion for further releases.
The main page looks like
And lets you search thru the titles to find the one you are after.
The recipe view is more or less the same.
The code itself is mit/x11 licensed, and contains a couple of interesting bits that others might want to take advantage of:
- Kirigami file dialog. Could be polished and upstreamed.
- Qt Markdown capability (with libdiscount). Could be librarifyied
Go forth, do cooking. And feel free to share recipes. Or create patches.
