  1. Pistes d'amélioration pour les applications mobiles

    Je sais sait pas si ça correspond au but du logiciel développé ou si c'est facile à implémenter pour un dev (je le soupconne mais je ne peux être sûr). Je ne sais pas non plus si c'est une nouvelle idée, sans doute pas mais je tente quand même.

    En voyant la quantité de données renseignés sur les fiches produits et en attrapant une sauce soja coréennes avec en gros marqué "OGM FREE", je suis allé sur le site et quand j'ai de nouveau vu les pastilles de couleur, j'ai eu une idée.

    Avec les infos déjà dans la base…

  2. Being able to pick a picture from the gallery, on the android app.

    I would like to be able to pick a picture from the gallery on the android app.

    It would greatly simplify the adding of multiple products one after the others (by taking/modifying the pictures before) or even one...

  3. Is it possible to select only products that are vegan? I would like a tick box for vegetarian or vegan or glutenfree or any other diets.

    Make it easier for people with allegies or food preferences (vegan or so) to find products that are OK for them in a simple way

  4. getting started guide

    i can't find a guide what i should do to contribute.

    i installed the app, registered an account, log in, scan a product and uploaded pictures. there is no information how to chose the categorie and what categories are used. there should be autocomplete in these fields and the ingredients should get OCRd from the pictures.

  5. put the data on the sd card in the android app

    The android app just filled my system memory to the limits. Please do not put the downloaded data in there, use a more appropriate directory. I can't use the app otherwise :(

  7. Source code of the site.

    Currently there is a placeholder repository on the Open Food Facts Github for the server. It'd be nice if the actual code were there to aid in recovering from a disaster, such as the loss of the main site.

  8. Support multilingual packaging.

    In Canada, packaging has labels in both enCA and frCA.

    This is particularly difficult for ingredients, which would be nice to be able to input in both languages.

    For an example of the current compromise for labels like this, see: http://world.openfoodfacts.org/product/06792800/diet-cokeTM-coke-diete-coca-cola

  9. Understandability

    Add a little GIF or VINE to illustrate the steps needed to crop and use an image for the different sections (like ingedients)

    A picture is worth a thousand words ;)

    Additional idea:
    When cropping images it'd be cool to place the four corner points individual to enable perspective correction. Maybe OCR would work even better.

  10. Better handling of allergens

    Your current method of supporting allergens is to highlight them in the ingredient list. This works for some allergens, but not others.

    For example, Gluten is contained in barley malt, a common ingredient in cereals (like rice krispies). There's no current way to highlight that this ingredient contains gluten. (Note: I consider this separate from may contain traces of gluten... its not a trace, its an actual listed ingredient, it just so happens to not be called 'gluten' in the ingredient list).

    This site would be extremely helpful for those with allergies, if you were somehow able to 'check' down…

  12. Better CSS for Nutrition Label

    It should be easy to integrate slightly better CSS for laying out the Nutrition Facts label. Similar to (but not necessarily jQuery based) http://dev2.nutritionix.com/html/label-jquery-plugin/html/demo-mini.html

  13. Take photo of the ingredient list too.

    This could be run through OCR on the server, so it would add a list of ingredients to each product. Really convenient for people with allergies.

  14. F-Droid

    Is the App on F-Droid (https://f-droid.org)? If not, I think this would help to get more users to contribute to the database as this is an app market, following the same ideals as you.

    I don't know why great altruistic projects like this always need to look like 1995. Please get a designer (or ask designer for volunteering help) that combines aesthetics and functionality.

  17. Add an API?

    This could be very useful for integration into other applications. Any plans for adding an API? If properly executed, this could become a very valuable backend, which could be monetized.

    Also, an API could help with data collection too.

  18. Apply for a technology strategy board funding

    I think there is a possibility to get funding from the technology startegy board, now called innovate uk.
    Innovate UK is an executive non-departmental public body, sponsored by the Department for Business, Innovation & Skills: "[They] fund, support and connect innovative businesses to accelerate sustainable economic growth."
    The main address is:
    https://www.gov.uk/government/organisations/innovate-uk

    I think the goal of the OpenFoodFacts apply to at least a program, namely:
    "Agri-food supply chain"
    https://interact.innovateuk.org/competition-display-page/-/asset_publisher/RqEt2AKmEBhi/content/agri-food-supply-chain

    The scope is quite vast, but must encompasse at least one of the 3 proposed high-level challenges.
    OpenFoodFacts respond to one of them "innovating to benefit consumer health, wellbeing and…

  19. Salt vs Sodium

    In Spain, at least in some products, instead of the sodium quantity the salt quantity is displayed in the nutrition table. I have read that it could be made an automatic convertion (the salt contains 40% of sodium) from one to another and I think it would be interesting to include the option so that you could enter interchangeably one or other.

  20. CSV export doesn't work

    I am interested in developing an application based on Open Food Facts database and I would like to import some data to a local database. The problem is that I tried to save a search in CSV and I found out that the CSV is not correctly generated. The output file is tab separated but some fields like ingredients contain other tabs instead of comas and therefore columns are not clearly separated.
