MoneyGo is a personal finance web application written in JavaScript and Golang. It adheres to double-entry accounting principles and allows for importing directly from financial institutions using OFX (via ofxgo).

This project is in active development and is not yet ready to be relied upon as your primary accounting software (but please feel free to try it out and offer feedback!).

Usage Documentation

Though I believe much of the interface is 'discoverable', I'm working on documentation for those things that may not be so obvious to use: creating custom reports, importing transactions, etc. For the moment, the easiest way to view that documentation is to browse it on github.


First, install npm, nodejs >= 6.11.3 (may work on older 6.x.x releases, but this is untested), python, curl, and go >= 1.9 in your distribution. Here is how in Arch Linux:

sudo pacman -S npm curl go python

Install browserify globally using npm:

sudo npm install -g browserify

You'll then want to build everything (the Golang and Javascript portions) using something like:

export GOPATH=`pwd`
go get -d github.com/aclindsa/moneygo
go generate -v github.com/aclindsa/moneygo/internal/handlers
go generate -v github.com/aclindsa/moneygo
go install -v github.com/aclindsa/moneygo

This may take quite a while the first time you build the project since it is auto-generating a list of currencies and securities by querying multiple websites and services. To avoid this step, you can touch src/github.com/aclindsa/moneygo/internal/handlers/cusip_list.csv before executing the go generate ... command above. Note that this will mean that no security templates are available to easily populate securities in your installation. If you would like to later generate these, simply remove the cusip_list.csv file and re-run the go generate ... command.


MoneyGo requires HTTPS or FCGI (no HTTP). Before starting the server, you will want to edit the example configuration file (src/github.com/aclindsa/moneygo/internal/config/example_config.ini) to point to your own SSL certificate/key OR set 'generate-certs-if-absent = true' in the '[http]' section of the config file.

Then, assuming you're in the same directory you ran the above installation commands from, running MoneyGo is as easy as:

./bin/moneygo -config src/github.com/aclindsa/moneygo/internal/config/example_config.ini

You should then be able to explore MoneyGo by visiting https://localhost:8443 in your browser. Editing the configuration file supplied will allow you to modify several settings including the port used, SSL certificate locations, and whether to serve via FastCGI instead of HTTPS (the default).
