Favorite system extended to recipes themselves

July 1, 2012 in User News

I’ve hacked modified the recipe system so that it can be used with the Buddypress Favorites. That is, if you favorite a recipe, it will appear in your Buddypress favorites list.

Also started functionality for copying other user’s recipes and making them your own.

User Data and the Lazy Cookbook

February 15, 2011 in Data, Export

One of my main concerns with dumping all my recipes into one of the existing recipe sites or apps available for the iPad was that it was not clear how I would go about recovering those recipes if I choose to move my recipes to another product, or if the site/app disappeared.

So one of the first features added to the Lazy Cookbook is the ability for users to:

  • Email a recipe to themselves from the recipe page
  • From their profile, email ALL recipes that they have created to themselves
  • From their profile, email ALL comments they have made across all recipes

Initially these emails are quite basic and I’d like to add some nicer formatting to them but they accomplish their goal — preserving the user’s ownership over their own data.
