I have always had trouble keeping a budget and my finances in check, I tried many apps but they just did not quite work for me. I decided to build something really simple for me to keep a budget in a language I can grok as a developer json.

What it does

It is a simple budget that keeps all budgeted expenses, incomes and savings in json format.

How I built it

I built this in react using javascript using the simple code editor library

Challenges I ran into

Getting a simple code editor running on react to do the automatic syntax highlighting and code indentation in react.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

Application is deployed and working, saving to local storage and a user can download the json

What I learned

Using local storage in react, code highlighting using prism js

What's next for JSON Budget

Adding authentication with firebase to allow for saving to the cloud, adding months so that a user can save budgets for different months, simple graphs and analytics for user budgets.
