Akount “revision 10″ released

Saturday, March 22nd, 2008

I released “revision 10” of my personal finance web application moments ago. This release provides a visible indication if a transaction is a future transaction. Future transactions have a gray background and are in italics. I also added a confirm dialog before deleting a transaction. (I accidentally deleted a transaction the other day. This wasn’t a problem before, but with the recent feature enhancement to allow transaction to be duplicated, there is now a link to duplicate a transaction right next to the link to delete a transaction. I accidentally clicked the delete instead of the duplicate link. Oops. This is now fixed.)

Akount “revision 8″ released

Saturday, March 22nd, 2008

“Revision 8” of my personal finance application “akount” has been released.

This new release includes enhancements to the login process. The login process has for a while supported username and password authentication or OpenID authentication. The login form showed both forms for username/password authentication and OpenID authentication. Now, only one or the other forms is shown and you can toggle between the two forms. Once you successfully authenticate, a cookie is set to remember the type of authentication that you used. Then, the next time you access the application and have to log in, the form displayed will be the one that you last used.

The code was also cleaned up a bit, consolidating the username/password and OpenID authentication into one PHP controller. (I have tried to use a model-view-controller (MVC) pattern in developing akount.)

Akount “revision 7″ released

Sunday, March 16th, 2008

“Revision 7” of akount has been released. (Productive evening–6 and 7 in one night.) In this update, transactions in the account transactions view can now be duplicated (copied). There is a “Duplicate” link that will open the “add transaction” view with the “Date” set to the current date and the “Description”, “Amount”, “Tag”, and “Transfer” duplicated from the original transaction. This feature will hopefully be helpful for entering recurring transactions that happen each month.

Akount “revision 6” released

Sunday, March 16th, 2008

I just released “revision 6” of akount, my personal financial management web application that is in “limited beta”. (Okay, very limited beta. I am the only user. 🙂 )

This release added support for a user to configure how many “items per page” are displayed on the account transaction pages. Prior to this, the number of transactions shown per page was 10. Now a user can choose between 1 and 99 items per page in the “My Info” page available from the account summary page.
