Haven't released it yet... but came here to show you what I came up with... Smile Have many people requesting this it Smile Well they actually wanted a daily recipe but the way I structured it I used the random.php and it'll run until 12 PM then recall the php to change it ... Smile

Is that API going to stay up? And are you adding more recipes to it?

I just want to say Thank You again!!!

Yep API is stable now, and I will add more recipes soon. Its quite a long process as I like to find nice meal images and detailed instructions.

Looks awesome, now I want a smart mirror Smile

I'm still waiting for someone to write a Kodi Add-on so it will really motivate me to add more content.

Thank you!

If I knew anything about Kodi I would love to help you out.... by nature I'm a php guy and this module is my first attempt at java.... it's been an adventure LOL

I see they are written in python... interesting... I'll have to take a look at a couple of addons to see how they work... OH by the way I'll be adding credit to the module to show where the info is coming from!!

The feature is already available yes but without a huge list of common ingredients it is quite hard to do at the moment.

You can give it a try now, all I ask is there is a good high quality(700x700) image of any meal you add. Recipes without images are pretty useless in my opinion.

Try to keep the ingredients as generic as possible like Broccoli rather than "chopped" broccoli.

What I will do in the future is add more ingredients and create pull downs instead of text boxes to keep the database consistency.

EDIT: Added 10 new recipes today Wink so that's a lot more new ingredients as well.

Haha, yes my spelling isn't the best.

Thanks we have our first user submitted meal! I might even try cooking it at some point Smile

I've added French Lentils as an ingredient, just let me know if you find any others missing.

Thanks guys!! It's a really cool thing this API... I have to update the module as I'd like to put a tag on the bottom showing where the recipe came from. Smile Soon!

Still nobody wants to make a Kodi Add-on for this? That would be awesome...

You could fork this Add-on and just change a few bits to get it working. The API is virtually identical:

@nauman API key sent, let us know what you come up with!

For anyone else who uses Kodi, the Add-on is now available on the official repository so you can now browse recipes on your TV Smile

You can find it in the screensaver section, although it does far more than just that.

I will get the Add Meal feature up and running in the next few days so people can add their favorite meals to the database with a nice picture.
