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
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.
