Thank you for helping to improve the Free Software Directory!

This page has not completed review yet.

This submission will now wait until an administrator reviews it and chooses whether to add it to the directory. If you would like to become an admin, then visit the directory mailing list and introduce yourself.

Admins, this may be a request for a new entry. First run some searches for the page. Admins may create the page after making sure that it doesn't already exist under a similar name. (You may also want to edit the part of the URL after "/Entry/", then load that address, to make sure it is concise and doesn't contain strange characters or unwanted spaces.)

Admins, when you are done incorporating any needed changes from this page into a main entry, please edit this page and change the following text from: |Finished review=No to: |Finished review=yes. This helps keep submissions organized. (Note that doing this isn't what adds the entry to the directory.)

Name Fin
Short description Command line personal finances manager
Full description Keeping track of personal finances is an incredibly boring task, and if you don't have much money then juggling it can be tricky. When looking at the existing software out there to manage accounts it's frequently highly complex and top heavy. Fin - an abbreviation of "financials" - is an attempt to do the opposite of what most accounting software does, and that's to make things incredibly simple and quick. Logging a transaction or viewing your current balance should take no more than a few seconds. This means less time wasted on bureaucracy and more time spent on what you really want to be doing. Data can also be exported or imported from CSV files, Emacs org mode tables and GnuCash.
