Hey, first of all: good job! Your API is great!

May I suggest an alteration to the endpoint lookup.php
Instead of having a fixed number of ingredients like:

"strIngredient1": "soy sauce",
"strIngredient2": "water",
"strIngredient3": "brown sugar",
          ...
"strMeasure1": "3/4 cup",
"strMeasure2": "1/2 cup",
"strMeasure3": "1/4 cup",
           ...


a better OO modelling of that JSON could be:



"ingredients": [
{
   "str": "soy sauce",
   "measure": "3/4 cup"
},
{
   "str": "water",
   "measure": "1 cup"
},
           ...
]

Yes a well known issue, its something that comes from years ago when the database was created.

If I could find a way of doing that without breaking backwards compatibility I would do it. I'd much rather an array to get around the inherent ingredient limit.

Maybe for V2 Wink

Introducing www.TheMealDB.com!

ImageWhat is it?
Its an open online database of food meal recipes. There are many other sites online but none offered a nice API, so I wrote one myself

How to use it with Kodi?
You don't yet... but there is a very simple JSON API that any developer can use to write a simple add-on. The vision is to be able to use Kodi in my kitchen/bar area to look up recipes with the remote. Hopefully a developer will jump on board and write the add-on.

Why?
I basically want to bring Kodi into my kitchen. Recipe books are old school, there must be a better way!

Features
- High quality transparent PNG ingredients
- Meal image uploads
- Browse meals in sequence
- Area and Categories

Limitations
There are only a few recipes in there at the moment but I am working on a way for users to add them easily. PM me if you want beta access to this feature.

How can I help?
Test the site, see if you find any bugs.

Future
Food tags, categories, food areas, ingredient filters

You will need a high quality photo of the recipe and the exact ingredients ready.

Once that is ready please email us for the link, details are on the contact page.

In my case since i'm using the api in my app , i give users the possibilty to upload their own recipes and i will make a direct redirection to your website to upload the recipes unless it is possible through a post request , should i ask the users to upload high quality photos ?

Yes, its a requirement for all new recipes. The only way to upload at the moment is via an email to us though. There is no API for this (yet)
