Hey foss nerds: Is there a federated recipe blog type thing? I want a place to post my vegan co-op slop recipes other than linking people to my soup.txt files on Dropbox

(I'm not kidding. If you want 20 servings of meatless chicken and dumpling soup, it's chowder.txt)

I guess there's a hashtag for now

check this thread for some vegan dumpling soup

Or is this a symptom of how the tech community is majority cis men so they don't care about food recipes beyond mixing coffee into Soylent :blobthinking:

Luke Smith have the website
No ads, no tracking, no dynamic garbage. Just recipes that are added by random people using git in a static website.

@lllillilll good idea but that dude is a memelord and looks like will refuse vegan food in his submission guidelines

@lllillilll oh and looks like his videos have a bunch of pepes so he's probably a Nazi.

This is why nobody takes the foss community seriously


I use Lemmy for that. We have a community for vegetal recipes, but only in Basque language. You could do so in another instance maybe :)
I would read yours willingly

@neko I think could work but it's just generic federated blogging software, nothing recipe specific


I really, REALLY want this. Finding recipes on the internet is a horrible experience.


My only suggestion would be putting up a dokuwiki website but that isn't really what you are looking for and requires jumping through the hoops of setting up a website.

Once you have gone through the shenanigans of setting up a website setup though, dokuwiki is wonderfully simple.

@carl that's very close and I'll probably check it out purely because it can interface with paprika, but it's missing the dream target of "strangers can stumble on the recipes too"

Man I don't know but if you find one I wanna make an account!!

@neko not exactly what you're asking for, but is an open source recipe website with an RSS feed. You can either try and contribute directly to it or host it in a lightweight fashion yourself (maybe and federate by using RSS.

@rslabbert the guy who runs it is a chud, but forking could be a good idea

@neko you could try it's federated minimalist blogging

@foxes @neko I am also interested in such a cooking blog project like only good and would love to start one or if you make one I will gladly contribute recipes!

@alienskyler @foxes I don't have any technical skills to make something new, but forking based might be an option

@neko @foxes I attempted to add a recipe for cinnamon rolls but I don't know if I did it right, I had to create a pull request because I don't have write access. And we are supposed to use html code right?

@alienskyler @foxes I've never had a project that actually had submissions, but it looks like you did it right. The system uses markdown and not html though

@neko @foxes crumbs I don't think I know markdown, I will have to look it up and fix it

@alienskyler @foxes there's an file that shows the rough outline. Look at it in Raw

@neko @foxes I'm going to try again, I copied my code into an html to markdown converter
@neko @foxes I don't think I did that right either, I closed the pull request, I have a .md file saved but I can't upload files because I don't have write access
@neko @foxes okay I'm stupid, my girlfriend taught me how to use git, I hadn't done it before. I'm all ready to do git push but it doesn't support password authentication and I need a personal access token, which I don't know what it is or how to get one, do you know anything about that?

@alienskyler @foxes not really, I'm sorry. I'm a normie so I use the web ui most of the time

@alienskyler @neko @foxes We can help with that. Are you on Windows, or Mac/Linux? (We know how to do it for Mac/Linux, I /think/ Windows comes with the tools these days but we haven't used them in a while.)

@IceWolf @neko @foxes I was able to make the token key but trying to push gave me a 403 error

@alienskyler @neko @foxes Oh /that's/ a different thing than I assumed you were stuck on. :3

Yeah, you gotta add the key in your account settings. Should go under "SSH keys". (At least I'm assuming it's a/an SSH key 'cause I don't know what other kinds of access token key you'd use. >,,>)

@alienskyler @neko @foxes ... Make sure to use the public one and not the private one!

@alienskyler @neko @foxes The private one should never leave your machine. The public one should be in a file with ".pub" on the end and /that's/ the one you give to people to let you log into their computers.

@IceWolf @neko @foxes how do I make a public key? I do not seem to be figuring it out

@alienskyler @neko @foxes Wait, did it not make one when you made the private key? It shoulda made both.

@IceWolf @neko @foxes and is it the access token in developer settings of the ssh and gpg keys?

@neko We tried Gnome Recipes expecting a normal recipe manager and instead got some kind of networked recipe-sharing app? I think? That might be worth a look.

@neko *reinstalls it*

...okay I...can't tell if this is actually networked after all?

Okay yeah, it's not. Recipes are tagged with author info and whatnot, but to get them to other people you gotta send them to a mailing list.

@IceWolf I prefer things I can squint at on my phone (also I use kde lol) but it's worth a look

@neko We use KDE too! This is definitely Gnomey, hah. Fortunately it seems to work with gtk3-nocsd (...never seen that before), so it's not /quite/ as Aggressively Gnomey as it could be, but it's still. Yeah.

@neko which part of the blog do you want to federate? Eg. do you just want people to be able to follow you from the fediverse, do you want replies to show up on your blog as a comments section, etc

@Satsuma I'm imagining something like peertube or the federated timeline, where adjacent instances just show up and are searchable


Wouldn't #Bookwyrm work for that ?
It's not what's it's intended for, but that would be a cool hack.
Maybe #Lemmy also ?

@lienrag a reddity thing probably is the best out of the box solution

@neko Not federated, but there's structured data rules for recipes that let things like voice assistants read them aloud better and such. I don't know how people do them outside of WordPress plugins

@neko you could host wiki for that, for example from raspberry pi or if you have nextcloud somwhere ther is an app for cookbooks
