I Wrote Some Javascript, It Wasn't Horrible

published on  
This is going to be painful to write. Like many, I’ve sat back and watched the world go mad. I’ve always thought of Javascript as an ugly, awkward, ill-suited language for disabling buttons on websites that somehow accidentally became the most popular language in the world . I subscribed to the belief that it broke the web with bloated webUIs doing unnatural things, it behaves completely unpredictably , it spread to the server like a virus , it took over my window manager , and now it’s starting to take over mobile as well.

NetWorth 1.8

I’ve just uploaded a v1.8 release of NetWorth , my personal finance / net worth tracking / budgeting app for Android. NetWorth 1.8 Fancy Graphing Changes in v1.8 Replaced the graphing library used previously with MPAndroidChart . Graphs now look a lot better, and support a variety of touch gestures which ultimately expose a lot more information. During a future projection, per-account data points are now captured. These can be viewed as a graph or a list by tapping the account within the projection balances list, as well as the budget items that affected the account during this projection, and by how much.

Happy New Year! Here’s NetWorth 1.7 . NetWorth is my Android app for keeping tabs on your finances and projecting into the future by combining this data with a budget. (more details on the Play Store listing) New in 1.7: Store the expected balances with each (new) snapshot (as per your budget), and display the delta between actual and expected when viewing a snapshot. (will graph this performance against budget in the future) Allow comparing snapshot to expected.
