Mint

Tracking money spent per day.

It looks like Mint no longer has an official API and the unofficial API requires your username and password. I’m looking into whether the Intuit API (Mint’s parent company) provides Mint data or not.

    what would the attributes be? cash in / cash out per day?

    Even just daily spending during the week would be nice to get an overall picture. Do I blow more money on lunch when the weather sucks, or when I’m more productive at work, or that sort of thing.

    Great comments, and great suggestion. Some kind of budget daily values, or cash-in/out, etc. Basically the first comment. Finances are something that effects our lives daily.

    We have a ‘money spent’ attribute already waiting for a finance integration, so that’d probably be the first thing we hooked up. This would track spending on a daily level.

    I’m keen to know if there’s been any progress or consideration on this one. It seems to be the most voted for integration.

    We haven’t been thinking about integrations for a while as we had custom tags, then the survey to do, and have already planned a Facebook integration and a redesign for the site that will take some time. After all that we’ll look at integrations again I expect!

    Other finance apps could work instead like Monefy http://www.monefy.me/, or Money Manager Ex https://www.moneymanagerex.org/

    Neither Monefy nor Money Manager Ex appear to have a public API, so there’s no way we could integrate with either of those, unfortunately.

    Have you looked into OFX at all, to connect directly with the banks?

    Thanks Jeremy, didn’t know about that one! It looks quite US-centric, and there seems to be little information about how to use it directly. I would prefer something a bit more global with a bit more documentation, I think.

    Even a manual export/import to some service from mint would be great!

    Ya definitely US centric. I’ve been playing around with it a bit, and it is not a simple user experience to get it set up and configured with the bank either…

    I realized this is a hard problem for the developers at Exist to solve so, in the meantime, I built a tool that lets you manually upload transactions exported from Mint.

    Let me know if it is inappropriate to share this here.

    This is great, thanks! Please also share it in the Developer section of the forum with the other community integrations, so others can find it 😊
