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...

Monday update: Thousands upon thousands of lines of code added, removed, or changed so far. The next update will be a hefty upgrade, and not just a layout redesign like I had planned. There are a few new features in the works that will make managing your budget complete (add/edit/remove budgets, add/edit/remove accounts, etc.). It's a good time to fill those gaps in as I go through the app structure page by page. I'm also learning how to add some flair like menus that slide up down smoothly, or modals that fade in and out. Some of that stuff isn't necessary, but it makes the app feel a lot nicer to use. I've been putting in about 2 to 3 hours per night and it's been a slow, tedious process. When I get closer to having a functional app, I may put together a "beta" site (without syncing enabled) that you can play with or test without interfering with your main budget.

Could the admin make a "Sticky" with the same topic?  It took me a while to find this again!

Wednesday morning update: Spent 4 hours fighting with the new layout stuff last night after discovering that list scrolling was not working as it should on my iPhone (header wasn't locking to the top, and kept scrolling off screen). Rage quit and went to bed with zero new lines of code written for the evening after trying what I thought was everything under the sun. Woke up and something clicked...

Changed 4 lines of code and scrolling works again. I think that's enough to call today a total success.

Iím still making progress, averaging about a page per day. The account view with the transaction list is currently underway and itís probably the ugliest since it was one of the first pages built. The budget view is up next and that will probably take the longest due to the shear complexity of the layout. There are a lot of moving parts, and Iím taking this opportunity to break small, common chunks out of the layout into their own components that can be reused. An example is the amount indicator surrounded by a red/green/gray bubble. It was implemented differently on each page, so I made a separate component that can simply be plopped down wherever an amount bubble is needed. That way, they all look the same and I can tweak the layout for all of them throughout the app by changing one file. I should have done this from the beginning, but I shot for functional vs. well formatted code, so now I get to pay for rushing things. :P

I did have one small but notable victory. If you have ever entered a long memo for a transaction that also has a long category name, you might find that the two values overlap in the account transaction list.

Yep nice, im quite verbose with my descriptions and ran into this issue from time to time. Would also like to say I wasn't really fussed one way or another when you announce the new advanced calculator function but I have used it countless times already now and it really helps.

I often have to stop and ask myself, "How on earth did I end up in this situation?", and it's usually self inflicted. The app style/restructure overhaul is going to take some time, mostly due to the tedious task of undoing all of the Frankenstein code I wrote. I spent most of the week refactoring the same 3 or 4 files (over, and over, and over, and over) until finally landing on a structure that works and can be cleanly reused throughout the app. It's only the tip of the iceberg, but a lot of the design decision making process is out of the way. Now I can stick to my new personal guidelines, rebuilding every page piece by piece. When I'm done, I will try to tally up the total number of lines changed throughout the project.

I did have one small but notable victory. If you have ever entered a long memo for a transaction that also has a long category name, you might find that the two values overlap in the account transaction list. I finally figured out how to property implement truncating of the memo with and ellipsis (...) when it collides with the category name (It's really not that difficult).  Actually, I haven't gotten to the transaction editor yet, but I figured out how to do it in another location. That issue has been on my hit-list for way too long.
