Search Diary Feature

Add feature that allows you to search the diary for previous foods eaten would be a big bonus. Any plans to implement this?


  • Thanks for the suggestion! Others has asked for this as well so it is on our list of things to tackle!

    As always, any and all postings here are covered by our T&Cs:

  • this. and also seach for biometrics, please

  • How's this coming? It would be really neat if I could find the diary entry for the last time I made Steak Pizzaiola so I could copy over the ingredients instead of having to either make a recipe or do it all over again.

  • The main discussion tracking this request is (due this forum not suggesting existing related topics when creating a new one, this feature has been requested multiple times).

  • I would also love to have a search diary feature. I have, however, found a clumsy hack. In Settings, Account tab, at the bottom is a section for exporting account data to csv files. It is the "servings" file that has something usable.

  • And why is this "hack" less time consuming then paging through the diary around when you think you had it last?

    You could write a crawler with curl to gather the data, how's your PHP or Python?

    That would be a horrible way to extract the data, when Cronometer should provide a JSON API, like any modern SaaS. But then again, the Cronometer web app uses this ugly Java RPC or whatever this is (never seen this response format in 10+ years of web development), so maybe a crawler would be "cleaner". 🤢


    No wonder they're struggling with technical debt.

    Also, I've pointed out above the main thread for this topic. Let's continue the discussion there please.
