Here are a few screenshots of the current design iteration. There are still a few significant things to iron out (add/edit/delete budgets, accounts, categories and some other stuff), but I'll put it out there are soon as I have it stable enough to play with.

It will be open to everyone, and fully functional except that it will only work on your phone browser and won't sync with any other devices. There will be a few minor UI/UX differences that change how you interact with the budget, so I figured it would be good to get some feedback before letting it loose in the wild. I also want to catch as many bugs as possible before letting it interact with your production budgets. I changed a lot of code. :o

The coding continues...

I had two solid days to work on the mobile app this week, and I'm starting to see some light at the end of the tunnel. Right now the worst part is under construction: the split transaction editor. It works, but it has always been a little clunky to use. It might not change much, but I have a few improvements worked out already. If all goes well, I might have something to show off in the next week or two. Although, that's a big if. Almost every single line of UI/UX code has been touched, which sometimes means deleting and rewriting entire sections. I'm sure there will be some unexpected brokenness, so it might take a lot of testing to make sure most of the bugs are worked out.

The last release of the mobile app was on July 21st, 2018, so this update has been a long time coming. I may put together a standalone "beta" site (which won't sync your actual budget) to get some feedback before making the new version live. I'm adding the ability to create and add/edit/remove budgets, accounts, and categories, so the app should be almost fully testable without requiring syncing with the main app.

Here's a small amount of proof that I have been writing some code. This is a concept for a new quick budget modal.

Just a short FYI. I'm chipping away when and where I can on the mobile app UI update. I was stuck on a very small and very annoying issue for about 2 weeks and finally noticed that I had two lines of code out of order. Awesome. With that finally solved, I was able to move on and things are progressing at a slow but steady pace. Coding is easy when my wife and new turd human are sleeping in the other room.

I think it's fixed now. For some reason I had to make a minor change to the web server configuration that was seemingly unrelated to the SSL renewal, and then it renewed fine. I might be doing some more server maintenance over the next few days, so let me know if anything is not working as expected. I am also tempted to do a distribution upgrade from Ubuntu 16 to 18, but I'm not quite brave enough yet. I may test that on another server first.

By the way, we had a 9lb 2oz boy and we had to evict him a week after his due date. Beside that, everything is looking good. It's been quite a week so far.

Looks like I didn't quite prepare for some SSL changes that were coming from Let's Encrypt. The mobile app is not secure and may not work until I can resolve things. Our new human arrived last week so I should have some time between all the feedings and pooping. Stand by...

I made some solid progress last week, and got derailed over the weekend due to some other commitments. We're now in a holding pattern for the new human arrival, and that should be happening in the next week or two or three. Hopefully I can keep chipping away.

After a number of false starts over the last few months, I finally sat down and put about 8 hours into the mobile app over the weekend. About 1/3 of that time was trying to figure out where I left off and what I was doing back in July. Right now I don't see any light at the end of the tunnel, but I'm going to try to put about 2 hours per evening into the app until the entire app UI code is cleaned up. After that I can finally get back into to working on some of the bells and whistles that I've wanted to add for a long time, as well as some other larger project ideas that I've been kicking around.

We're only a few weeks (or maybe days) away from adding a new human that will be sharing our living space. Most of my time over the last several months has gone into preparing for that, but I think we're finally coasting into the home stretch. I should have a week or two off work to deal with things, so I'm hoping to squeeze some side project development in between child maintenance sessions.

It's been a while since I updated the Digital Ocean droplet that hosts the mobile app. I'm doing that today, and hopefully future-proofing it against some coming changes to the LetsEncrypt SSL certification system. There should be no major interruptions in service, but you never know...

I'm getting a little rusty. :P

To give some perspective on why I have been quiet lately, I currently have 48 hours of time in at work since Sunday morning (it's currently Wednesday afternoon). A week and a half of Christmas holiday/vacation starts in a few hours. Oddly enough, I had actually planned to spend some time getting back on track with the mobile app and over the upcoming break after recovering the end of year crunch. So, we'll see how that goes.

Alright, if you haven't noticed already, the development updates have been few and far between lately. Attached is a picture of the primary reason.

I recently discovered that sneaking candy and caffeine to my nearly 3 year old niece before bed time is frowned upon.

Another Monday Tuesday Update: Ummmm... well... life has chucked a few lemons my way over the last couple of weeks. Had a few significant family issues pop up, work has been up and down, and I was let go from the band I've been playing with since January this morning (I'm not really heartbroken about that). We just got back from a 5 day road trip vacation, and I get to take my car in next week to find out why the dashboard was lighting up like a Christmas tree over the last 250 miles. It's been a summer to remember to say the least. Side project development time has been zero while dealing with and sorting all of that out. But enough about me. How are you guys doing?

Another Monday update: Ran into some quicksand with work and family stuff last week and weekend. Progress was still made slowly, but nothing much new to report. Still trudging through fixing a bunch of page layout stuff after making a change that broke everything thoroughly. Nothing much on the schedule for tonight, so Iím going to pick up some programming beverages on the way home and hop to it.

Wait... it's Tuesday...
