The Mill River in Northampton, Mass. is normally a quiet river. When the river levels rise, it becomes as exciting tubing adventure! This doesn’t happen very often, and I don’t want anyone to miss it when conditions are right. So I wrote a website that predicts when the tubing will be good, and you can sign up to get a text message when this happens:
So I created Balance, an open source tool to keep track of shared finances for groups. You can create groups that are public, require approval to join or are invitation-only, and add transactions, from simple one to one payments to complicated reimbursements. The program keeps a running total of who owes money or who is owed money.
Before now I was spending quite a bit of time with complicated spreadsheets to determine who owed what in my household. It’s much simpler now.
This is my first open source project, and I’m getting a handle on code repositories and such. I hope others can improve on it! Please let me know what you think.
How is the picture above related? It’s describes how my brain sometimes feels when working on a project like this!
