Weeknotes 2022-04-25


Released version 0.0.5 of the command line kptncook scraping tool based on the work to reverse the kptncook api from Daniel. It's now possible to fetch recipe metadata just by providing the sharing url of a recipe from the kptncook app. It's also possible to download all stored favorites and backup them locally or import them to mealie.

After listeing to LOV021 Podlove-API mit Dirk Schumann I realised it might be possible to use the podlovers podcast frontend also for django-cast because it doesn't depend directly on wordpress anymore. This is very exciting, because having to use php/wordpress was the main reason keeping me from looking more closely into the whole podlove ecosystem. The only thing I have to do is to write an adapter for the api (and there are some parts missing as well like transcripts and contributors). But at first I have to be able to test and understand the existing api locally. Therefore my aversion for wordpress led me to having to use it finally. In the end it wasn't that difficult at all and I took some notes on how to reproduce that. File handling is not working yet, but I'm sure to figure it out next week.
