Gourmet Recipe Manager

Program: Gourmet Recipe Manager

License: GPL

Website: http://grecipe-manager.sourceforge.net/

Description: Gourmet Recipe Manager is a simple but powerful recipe-managing application. Gourmet is intended for the GNOME desktop environment, but works on any platform that gtk supports, including windows.

Gourmet allows you to collect, search and organize your recipes, and to automatically generate shopping lists from your collection. The latest version also allows you to calculate nutritional information for your recipes using the USDA food database (or entering custom information by hand).

Other:

  • Uses GTK
  • Written in Python and will probably need to be compiled (Windows EXE is not up to date)
  • There are a number of registry entries, but it looks to me that most of them are for windows administration (exe location, installer information, Start Menu information, etc.) rather than used by the program itself

Absolutely!

I've used the USDA database to help make healthy meals before, but I've had to use it separately from my recipe builder spreadsheet.
I like too that it has customizable categories.

Mark me as very interested, too!

I made this half-pony, half-monkey monster to please you.

Shouldn't be too hard

I've copied my install over to my portable drive, and it seems to run OK. I think that the hard part will be putting it into PAF format.

Have you compiled the latest version

for Windows from the source code?

I didn't see a binary on the SF page.

Not latest version

I don't have the latest version, but if you go back a couple of releases (0.13.4), there is a pre-compiled Windows version. Whoever does the PortableApps version will most likely want to compile the most recent release for themselves.

I installed 0.13.4

Here is a link to the installer I used:

http://downloads.sourceforge.net/grecipe-manager/gourmet-0.13.4-1-full_g...

I don't know what the difference is between full_gtkglade and no_gtkglade.

And this page:

http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=108118

Says that 0.13.8 is the latest stable and 0.14.3 is the latest unstable.

you need the one with GTK if it is gonna be portable. you need GTK for the program to work because it is Gnome based. also it might be easier for the developers to compile everything into a installer using the source code. i dont know i am not a dev but i posted a link to the installation/compilation instructions in a prior thread.

We're In Tears

We'd sure LOVE to have a portable recipe manager... Any chance the development of this will be picked up anytime soon? I'm trying to put together a collection of good kid-approved recipes for families who have children on the autism spectrum and have VERY limited diets. Would be great if people could just download the app and add their own recipes to the database.

Thanks for having worked on this.

Non-Portable Version

Glad to hear it. So is it currently working and stable for Windows 7? I went to the non-portable version and according to the forums, lots of windows users can't run it (which is what happened to me when I tried a while back).

Thank you for looking after this Smile
