I've had days where I would love to get recipes based on my current ingredients or something I'm craving
Wow, this is super cool! And now, I'm getting hungry! \^o^/
I like the design of the app, and that the lazychefbot has something to say to picky eaters.
I tried putting in 'potato' in the search and waited for a few minutes but the loading spinner never went and away and nothing else happened (there were a few JS errors in the console).
The idea is pretty good and it looks nice though :)
Really like the idea to explore some NLP and have fun with it at the same time. Was going to ding you folks for design since it was really a Twitter bot but you had me with the Terminator. Good job!
This is awesome!
This has to be the most innovative entry I came across! I gave it coconut and rice expecting to have "Milk rice" returned. Which is a really popular breakfast here. It did give milk rice, but it gave 3 other interesting recipes that I did not know about! one of which I am going to try preparing in this weekend! It actually was useful.
Oh. I will ignore that the link of the recipe was not clickable, because the rest of the app was awesome! Great job!!
I loved how you made the process so easy as simply enter the ingredients and get the recipes! It is a very common problem no to know what to cook and this is a easy but simple way to solve it.
lol I love this idea, but I can't make rice without rice.
Now I'm hungry :(
I knew I was in for something when I told it I had "chicken" in the fridge, and it suggested I make "savory squash puree". I guess it does complementary dishes, too? The other options all involved chicken, by the first did not. I think this is a great entry, but it obviously needs a bit of tweaking. It looks great, and I think with a bit more work, this would be a great app. Good job Super Happy Fun Mega Hackers!
It's a fun idea. I love cooking, and there are absolutely days I'm wrapping up work and need to hit the store, but don't want to pull from my stale mind list of recipes. If I know a few ingredients in my fridge, this is an easy fix. The web app is unfortunately slow. I ended up doing other things and coming back to it later when it had finally loaded(I'd actually forgotten about it. Took that long) I didn't auth to the Twitter account because I'm not super keen on using it for public recipe search(I am pretty protective of what is in my tweet history and I think it's a bit goofy to have it in there).
A few long load time issues submitting ingredients to the web app, but the tweet bot speedy! It seems to REALLY like grilled cheese which I can totally get down with; Not sure whether this is emergent or scripted, but either way I enjoy bots with personality! Geat job!
loved this, great idea/design/product/implementation, very well done for a hackathon. I would also show additional ingredients required to make that recipe. You should put this up for real.
good use of material design - simple, clean, and easy to use app 👍
