OSPFM global README

OSPFM stands for Open Source Personal Finance Management server.

OSPFM is the foundation for a future Software-as-a-Service finance application, named everCount.

Documentation as HTML

To convert all documentation to HTML, you need the docutils tool (from the python-docutils package in some Linux distributions). Simply execute the docs-to-html.sh script in the project's root directory. Every .rst file will then have a HTML equivalent.

When you read them online on the GitHub website, these files are automatically converted.

Manifesto

To understand the motivation behind OSPFM, please read the manifesto in MANIFESTO.rst.
