Travis CI Build Status

This is a really tiny app to ease the shared houses budget management. Keep track of who bought what, when, and for who to then compute the balance of each person.

The code is distributed under a BSD beerware derivative: if you meet the people in person and you want to pay them a beer, you are encouraged to do so (see LICENSE for more details).

Make it run!

To make it run, you just have to do something like:

$ virtualenv venv
$ source venv/bin/activate
$ pip install -r budget/requirements.txt
$ cd budget
$ python run.py

It is also better to actually turn the debugging mode on when you're developing. You can create a settings.py file in the budget directory, with the following content:

DEBUG = True

You can also set the TESTING flag to True so no mails are sent (and no exception is raised) while you're on development mode.

Deploy it

To deploy it, I'm using gunicorn and supervisord:

$ virtualenv venv
$ source venv/bin/activate
$ pip install -r requirements.txt
  1. Add the lines in conf/supervisord.conf to your supervisord.conf file. adapt them to your paths!
  2. Copy and paste the content of conf/nginx.conf in your nginx conf file. adapt them to your paths!
  3. reload both nginx and supervisord. It should be working ;)

Don't forget to set the right permission for your files !

Also, create a settings.py file with the appropriate values if you need to use a different database for instance. You can also set APPLICATION_ROOT if you want to prefix your URLs to serve ihatemonney in the folder of a domain, e.g:


How about the REST API?

Yep, you're right, there is a REST API with this. Head to the api documentation to know more.

How to contribute

There are different ways to help us, regarding if you are a designer, a developer or just an user.

As a developer

The best way to contribute code is to write it and to make a pull request on github. Please, think about updating and running the tests before asking for a pull request as it will help us to maintain the code clean and running.

To do so:

$ workon budget
(budget) $ python tests.py

before pushing anything to master :)

As a designer / Front-end developer

Feel free to provide us mockups or to involve yourself into the discussions hapenning on the github issue tracker. All ideas are welcome. Of course, if you know how to implement them, feel free to fork and make a pull request.
