An Open-Source Recipe Parser

Capturing and organizing recipes from many sources has always been the goal of One tsp. I started building the Recipe Clipper a few years ago and maintaining it is indeed a labor of love. It take a bit of care to add support for new web sites and to maintain currently supported recipe sites as they go through their own changes. And since many people have asked how they can help with making One tsp. better I’ve decided to open up the recipe parsing software to the public.

The code for One tsp.’s recipe parsing is now available on GitHub:

https://github.com/onetsp/RecipeParser

Please reach out with questions and comments. I’d love to see how you can contribute to the parser or how you’ll use it in other projects!
