My latest project is ExpensesSpreadsheet.NET. It is the simplest and easiest solution I could come up with to track and categorize expenses … in a spreadsheet. Let’s call it a niche web application, so it’s probably not for every one, but it should fit some extremely well. It runs on Heroku’s Node.js stack.
Over the last month or two, I’ve been very busy with a few projects. And it was about time to present some. I have many more ideas on how to extend ExpensesSpreadsheet, but I thought it wise to first gauge the reaction of people.
It uses the following technology:
- RailwayJS, a Rails-like web framework.
- connect-auth for Facebook integration (and a lot more)
- MongoDB for data storage. Mostly because it was so easy to get started with compared to traditional related databases. But in hindsight, I think it’s an ok choice. I really don’t safe any relations anyway.
- Heroku, cloud hosting done right.
