Build Status

moneyGuru is a personal finance management application. With it, you can evaluate your financial situation so you can make informed (and thus better) decisions. Most finance applications have the same goal, but moneyGuru's difference is in the way it achieves it. Rather than having reports which you have to configure (or find out which pre-configured report is the right one), your important financial data (net worth, profit) is constantly up-to-date and "in your face". This allows you to constantly make informed decision rather than doing so periodically.

The Cocoa UI of moneyGuru is hosted in a separate repo: https://github.com/hsoft/moneyguru-cocoa

Current status: People wanted

moneyGuru has currently only one maintainer, me. This is a dangerous situation that needs to be corrected.

The goal is to eventually have another active maintainer, but before we can get there, the project needs more contributors.

Whatever your skills, if you are remotely interestested in being a contributor, I'm interested in mentoring you. If that's the case, please refer to the open ticket on the subject and let's get started.

Windows maintainer wanted

As described on my website, v2.9.x serie of moneyGuru is the last one to support Windows unless someone steps up to maintain it. If you're a Windows developer and are interested in taking this task, don't hesitate to let me know.

OS X maintainer wanted

My Mac Mini is already a couple of years old and is likely to be my last Apple purchase. When it dies, I will be unable maintain the OS X version of moneyGuru. I've already stopped paying for the Mac Developer membership so I can't sign the apps anymore (in the "official way" I mean. The download is still PGP signed) If you're a Mac developer and are interested in taking this task, don't hesitate to let me know.

Contents of this folder

This package contains the source for moneyGuru. Its documentation is available online. Here's how this source tree is organised:

  • core: Contains the core logic code for moneyGuru. It's Python code.
  • qt: UI code for the Qt toolkit. It's written in Python and uses PyQt.
  • images: Images used by the different UI codebases.
  • debian: Skeleton files required to create a .deb package.
  • help: Help document, written for Sphinx.
  • locale: .po files for localisation.

There are also other sub-folder that comes from external repositories and are part of this repo as git submodules:

  • hscommon: A collection of helpers used across HS applications.

How to build moneyGuru from source


On Ubuntu, the apt-get command to install all pre-requisites is:

$ apt-get install python3-dev python3-venv python3-pyqt5 pyqt5-dev-tools

On Arch, it's:

$ pacman -S python-pyqt5

On OS X, an easy way to install a "framework enabled" Python 3 is through pyenv. Once pyenv in installed, run a command like:

env PYTHON_CONFIGURE_OPTS="--enable-framework" pyenv install 3.5.1


moneyGuru is built with "make":

$ make
$ make run

Running tests

The complete test suite is ran with Tox 1.7+. If you have it installed system-wide, you don't even need to set up a virtualenv. Just cd into the root project folder and run tox.

If you don't have Tox system-wide, install it in your virtualenv with pip install tox and then run tox.

You can also run automated tests without Tox. Extra requirements for running tests are in requirements-tests.txt. So, you can do pip install -r requirements-tests.txt inside your virtualenv and then py.test core hscommon

Further documentation

For further development-related documentation, there's a "moneyGuru Developer Documentation" section in the english version of the main documentation. This documentation is built with the app and is also available online.
