finctrl Goes Live

After working on many prototypes, setting up cgit, receiving permission from my employer to publish, presenting the idea at ConleyCon 2015, and finally switching from shell scripts to Python, I am pleased to present the first code commit to “finctrl”, my attempt at automating financial control. Please find the repository at It currently works by downloading email notifications of transactions from a “Cashflow” IMAP folder and parses them assuming the winter 2015 format. Support for additional input and output formats will hopefully follow soon. (I’ve got shell scripts for Chase; it should be quick and easy to port that to Python, but making a generic framework may take significant work.)
