The role carried out is to design and develop an online store where the chefs can sell their delicious dishes over the network. The creators were impassioned by the tedious experience one has to go through to create and share a great dish that was associated with a memorable event in their lives.

Initially we created a login page where people can ‘Go to profile’ further they can add recipes, photos and also invite friends. Then we created ‘Go to kitchen’ page where we can add your daily dish and invite friends over to taste your masterpiece.

We provide a geo-location based to provide search results customized to user’s location. We developed based on geo-locator where you can search by location, where the seller posts will be sorted based on the nearest radius limit. We also integrated PHPfox plugin ip2location where the users can choose their location. The PHPfox framework is used to create modules for sharing recipes over the network.

The application provides settings option where the users would be able to change the password and timeline settings as follows:

  • Who can add recipes to their timeline
