AnyMeal is a Linux recipe database software offering recipe management for a cookbook with more than 100,000 recipes, allowing to search, display and edit them. AnyMeal is designed to be lean and flexible. Happy cooking!
AnyMeal has reached the development status alpha. This means, that the basic features have been implemented. The alpha-phase has its focus on achieving higher stability and implementing necessary features, which may be found to be missing.
At the current stage AnyMeal project is already possible to import, export, search, edit and display recipes. Printing recipes is not supported directly.
AnyMeal allows you to export recipes to docbook with the GUI and by command-line. If you know, how to use Apache-FOP, you can create PDF-files from your recipes already! Here is a german cookbook for example.
There is a wizard for setting up a database. Destruction of databases is supported by a simple dialog.
The architecture of this software is making extensive use of SQL and XML. The software is object-oriented and implemented in C++. By using the powerful XML-SQL-Utility-approach, it was possible to implement the database-backend very quickly.
Using flex, it was possible to build a performant importer for Mealmaster-recipes. Instead of having to type in your recipes, you can start with downloading and importing a huge amount of recipes from the internet.
All search-commands are converted to SQL and passed on to the database to fully exploit the power of MySQL. AnyMeal is being tested on databases with more than 120,000 recipes and 140 million characters. This is the equivalent of more than 40 weighty cookbooks. Most other applications can not handle more than a couple of thousand recipes!
Here are some key features of "anymeal":
?пїЅ AnyMeal is able to import Mealmaster recipes (ingredient can be specified in two-columns as well) and store them in the database. Erroneous recipes can be exported to Mealmaster files to allow fas
