How do you upload recipes using a json file? I can't get it to work...

I found the option to "import from json file..." but yet when I save a file in note++ as ".json", I get an error saying "Please upload a compatible import file"

How do I get this to work? It'd make things SO much easier to just upload/import them, rather then manually add everything with every recipe.

I did a quick search in the help section, but I didnt see anything that addressed this issue specifically (unless I missed something?)

  • So there is no way to upload a recipe? Even if from publications by Dr Mercola?

  • Hi AngieB,

    We do not have a way to import recipes from outside sources - but this is a requested feature that we are working on for the future.

    We recently included a number of recipes from Dr. Mercola's Ketogenic Cookbook in our database - so we may already have the one you are looking for!

    Best,

  • Iā€™d love to see this feature!! I have tons of recipes in AnyList that I would love to import directly into Cronometer with json.

  • I'm a software developer by day so wouldn't mind knowing the json schema so I can do this manually (I know my way around json just fine). I could just export some but it's easier if you guys just tell me :)

  • I attempted to export a custom recipe to JSON, and what I got was not very usable. All of the nutrition information uses private IDs, so it's not easily usable. Is this intentional? Sample:
    "nutrients": [
    {
    "amount": 0.19865395145013,
    "id": 512
    },
    {
    "amount": 0.6427501755671201,
    "id": 513
    },
    {
    "amount": 1.2565721218169104,
    "id": 514
    },
    ...
    {
    "amount": 34.273649944022196,
    "id": -203
    },
    {
    "amount": 265.4241802598865,
    "id": -204
    },
    {
    "amount": 12.438898138887302,
    "id": 203
    },
    ...
    ]

  • Also, I will say -- the reason I started looking for an export is because there exists no permalinking to recipes. I would really like to be able to deeplink to a meal spreadsheet that I use for the family in Google Sheets.

  • Would be really awesome if Cronometer would team up with MealBoard. That way I can stop entering the recipes twice šŸ˜‰

  • Thanks for the feedback @Hamrthroer_69 I have added your request to our list!
