GNOME Bugzilla – Bug 779223
Download data updates from the web
Last modified: 2017-04-07 02:46:45 UTC
Once we pull images from the web, there is no reason why we can't also download updates for recipes.db, chefs.db and picks.db from the web.
This obviously requires us to be much more careful about data format changes.
One thing to keep in mind is that we allow translation of recipes. Those will have to be downloaded together with the new content.
As a first step, i've split recipe translations off into a separate gettext domain.
Alternatively, we could also merge the translations back into the keyfiles.
I've added version information to the databases now, which helps for this as well.
Initial support for downloading the data is in place now. Some more polish is needed.
