Personal Assistant with Luigi

This repository contains different Luigi DAGs that allows me to automate repetitive tasks.

I have created a StandardTask that extends the Luigi original task so that it is really easy to add new tasks.

What you basically need to do is to create a new task with the following code:

class ReportsTask(StandardTask):
    module = "reports"
    priority = 80

    def requires(self):
        yield MoneyLoverTask(self.mdate)

And you need a script or package inside the src folder that has a function called main. Essentially what Luigi will do is:

module = __import__(self.module)

You can read more about it here.


Expenses/Incomes Report

Since 2010 I have been recording all expenses and incomes. For the last years I have been using Money Lover to do so. This app has a way to export the data as an Excel file. But the problem is that it does not have the format I want. So the first task is to clean that data (clean data).

With the data cleaned the idea is to create a custom html report using Jinja2 templates.

In order to make it more flexible there are two tasks:

  1. Extract info that creates a yaml with the info
  2. Create Report that creates the html report with the yaml data

With this approach is easy to modify the data or the template without needing to modify the other.

So the pipeline is as follows:


As you can see I use dropbox for storing all data this way is easy for me to access or modify it.

The report itself uses W3css for the layout and Highcharts for charts.

Here you can see some of the pages the report have:

report_dashboard report_evolution report_comparison report_pies report_liquid report_sankey

And of course the report is responsive:


Flights tracker

I regularly travel to Italy and I want to do it as cheap as possible. So I thought the best way to do it was to let the assistant track all the prices between the airports I wanted and store that data. Then I could use Data Analysis or Machine Learning to minimize the price I pay for the flights.

To do so I used the Rapid API Flight Search app. This API allowed me to query some pairs of airports daily for free. So right now the assistant is storing a year of data each day so that I can see prices changes and which company offers cheaper flights each day.


As you can see Rapid API is getting their data from Skyscanner.

A sample of the data:


Getting info

The assistant is connected to slack so that is able to send messages of each task it completes. It will also give information about any task failure that might happen.

Nexts steps

The idea is to extend the slack integration by creating a chatbot.

This chatbot would allow me to:

  • ask about the current state of the tasks
  • make the assistant do a task instantaneously
  • get feedback of anything I ask

Luigi working

I feel really proud every time I see Luigi working with all those nice logs. You view the same here:
