Moved! Bye Hi

At last. Krecipes is in kdenonbeta now. No more complaints about delayed anoncvs servers :-)

Oh, and we're heading for a 0.3 release very soon. With some very nice new features:

  • Recipes can be classified in categories
  • One can especify also number of servings per recipe
  • Authors are now acknowledged (one can especify one or more authors per recipe)
  • Initial i18n. Language support: English, Spanish, French and Euskara
  • UTF support
  • (Unfinished) Mysql database autosetup to make setup easier
  • In-place creation of new ingredients and units
  • Renaming of units and ingredients
  • Anddddd...... drums please!... The best feature ever: some of KDE's nicest recipes ever. Obviously acknowledging the respective authors ;-)

  • Obviously, several bugfixes are included also, and I may have forgotten some new features. Anyway, next version 0.4 is expected to be the feature boom. You'll see.


    Can KRecipes teach me to actually *do* the dishes and cakes too? :) Or rather, could I D'n'D a recipe onto /dev/kitchen and get it all done...

    Pff, just chuck your ingredients into /dev/random and cook the resulting recipe :)

    that's what kitchensync is good for :-)

    A killer app !
    I hate looking to the cupboard to find what i'll going to eat now. I want to have suggestions of recipes ! And i want a KDE-enabled fridge to do this work and to send a mail automatically to a shop when i have no more butter and eggs !

    More seriously, it would be cool to commit the added recipes to a net repository, and to get new recipes through this system.
    And a notation system : easy to do or not, good taste, price of ingredients...
    Also a good search tool : today i have mozarella and i want to eat an italian recipe...

    Wishlist ;-)

    What about a "kitchen-unit-translator"?
    Noone here in Germany uses cups, tsp or Tbsp. What about a meta-system for units with an automatic translation (incl. rounding) into current i18n-units?

    Tell me how I can do it, and I'll do it. Krecipes allows to have your own units defined, so it's difficult to know in advance all the conversion rates. It does include an initial units table with conversion rates, so I can include most European and American (and British of course :-) units, but the user can remove those.

    About the roundings and so on, Jason is working to have an input that accepts fractions for the next version, so I expect it will be very nice.

    Try this in konqueror:

    gg:two quarts in cups

    You may also try

    gg: speed of light in yards per fortnight

    It's a stupid recipe, but try before you say anything :-)

    Get a pound of very small potatos. Peel and boil, but only until they are white, you want them to still be pretty hard.

    Put 75 grams of butter in a pan, put on slow fire until you see bubbles.

    Now fry the potatos in the butter, turning them slowly around and around (this is very important!) until they have a golden crust.

    Add salt. Serve with mayonnaise on the side, accompanying any kind of meat.
