It is possible to import some recipes from some files in the app or the website.
Currently are supported these following formats :
- MyCookBook (.xml and .mcb)
- Meal-Master (.mmf, .mm, .txt)
- MasterCook (.mz2, .mx2, .mxp, .txt)
- LivingCookBook (.fdx)
- RezKonv (.rk, .txt)
- CookBook Wizard Recipe Software (.txt)
- Springpad (.json)
- Handy CookBook iOS app (.hcb)
- Digital Recipe Sidekick android app (.xml)
- Text Files (.txt)
I would love to be able to import from some websites that are not supported yet (particularly sortedfood.com). I can easily write a parser for their website and output the result in any format I like. But I would like to keep any code I write as flexible as possible, so I have three questions for you:
I found the description of the MyCookBook XML file format and am using that for now. :-) Works smoothly.
If anyone at MyCookBook wants to take a crack at importing from sortedfood.com, here are usable xpath entries for the most important website contents:
We are able to import any html recipes that contain some strutured data: JSON-LD code, schema.org, ... You can find some documentation here : https://developers.google.com/search/docs/data-types/recipe
Moreover you can add your own parser on your android device : http://mycookbook-android.com/site/add-your-own-websites/
this is amazing news. Thanks a lot, a very well programmed app. I'll try this as soon as I find the time. I am guessing I will still want to subscribe to be able to import more recipes from websites?
