I've been wanting to write a web app for some time that would be an up to date, one stop recourse for veggies. That is easily updateable by everyone and kept up to date by anyone.. A lot of the information on veggie sites I've seen hold static and out of info.. I'd eventually like the database to be accessible on mobile devices also (mobile phones, pda's, maybe even downloading some info onto ipods)..
the kind of info I'd like to store is:
o restaurants (location, comments, ratings, veggie strictness, etc).
o food/drink information
o other stuff (cleaning products, etc)
o book reviews
o veggie events (events in your area, etc...)
o veggie info (vitamin info, veggie ingredient lists, etc..)
I knocked up a quick demo (http://pathos.textdriven.com/main/display
), mainly to learn a new computer language.. I'll probably have to start again from scratch (since the code isn't that great).. I haven't implemented all of the stuff above in the demo, but it will give y'all the kind of thing i'm going for...
anyone think it's a good idea to keep going and develop this more? any suggestions for enhancements or additions? or is it not needed is there another site that does all this? any comments welcome...
