NextCloud Cookbook

A library for all your recipes. It uses JSON files following the recipe format. To add a recipe to the collection, you can paste in the URL of the recipe, and the provided web page will be parsed and downloaded to whichever folder you specify in the app settings.

Further documentation (also internal ones) are published on the documentation pages of the project.


The app works generally in any modern browser. Additionally, there are some more specialized clients listed here.


The currently available clients are

I can't see my recipes

Recipes are only shown in the UI if they are present in the database. It is likely you have recipes that haven't been indexed/added to the database yet. Try clicking the Settings > Rescan library button to compare the database with what is in your recipes folder and apply any differences to the database.

If this still doesnt work, a full, non-incremental resync might help. This can be done by setting your recipes folder to a different (ideally empty) folder to clear the database. Setting the recipes folder back to what it was before should cause all your recipes to sync again, effectively refreshing the database

"Could not load recipe" when trying to download recipes?

A lot of websites are unfortunately not following the standard, which makes their recipes impossible to read by this app.

A website using correct markup is not being read correctly

The parser is far from perfect. If you can help out in any way, please have a look at the parseRecipeHtml() method and create a pull request with your changes.

All of the text is in English?
