iRecipe is an electronic cookbook, recipe management application.

Here are some key features of "iRecipe":

Create categories to sort your recipes
View your recipes on screen or print out a copy
Tag your recipes with keywords to help you find them ("vegetarian," "favorite," etc.)
Spotlight-like search to help you find recipes you have added
More features coming soon!

iRecipe is currently early in its development stage and thus has only basic functionality.

While our 1.0 release aims for a modest feature set including the basic ability to store and search a catalog of recipes, planned features for future releases currently include attempted nutritional analysis of recipes based on their ingredients, conversion between units (e.g., English measurements to/from metric), and more. Suggestions are always welcome.

iRecipe is open-source and released under the MPL. This means that if you are a programmer, you can help work on iRecipe! iRecipe is written with a Java back-end (hence the requirement for the JRE), but the OS X front-end is written entirely in Cocoa to provide a first-class Mac experience. (We use the Cocoa-Java bindings--we could have used the Objective-C language but figured Java would be easier since part of the program is already written using it. But it is worth noting that iRecipe is not a Swing application--it has a fully native OS X interface. And, yes, we know the Cocoa-Java bridge is now deprecated. We may explore more options in the future.)


Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 1.5 or above
