What is Firefly III?

“Firefly III” is a financial manager. It can help you keep track of expenses, income, budgets and everything in between. It even supports credit cards, shared household accounts and savings accounts! It’s pretty fancy. You should use it to save and organise money.

Personal financial management is pretty difficult, and everybody has their own approach to it. Some people make budgets, other people limit their cashflow by throwing away their credit cards, others try to increase their current cashflow. There are tons of ways to save and earn money.

Firefly works on the principle that if you know where you’re money is going, you can stop it from going there.

A full-featured, web based personal finance manager with a slick interface and great reporting tools. If you're serious about getting control over your money, I highly recommend Firefly III. The developer is extremely responsive and constantly improving the software.

Have been trying out Firefly III for the last couple months, definitely a marvelous piece of software. Although it's self hosted, it is really easy to set up using docker. Plus, you don't have to expose your data to a third party and you're able to access it from anywhere; you can even install a PWA on your phone, which works just as a native app would.

It's worth mentioning that Firefly requires "self-hosting", what usually means hosting on some VPS somewhere in the world, and, as explicitly stated in the documentation, no encryption of data at rest whatsoever is included. I don't even mean end-to-end encryption, I mean your financial data in plain-text stored in a server. Considering how sensitive financial data is, and how vulnerable common self-hosting solutions are, this is, to say the least, unsound development. If you don't have the skills or money to self-host and encrypt the whole system reliably, go for another app.

If you use an app that's hosted on a third party server, you either have to pay with money or with your data (or both). I'd trust an unencrypted self-host a lot more than some random 3rd party app; plus, if you don't want to use a VPS, you can just host it on your local network.

"Self-Hosted" — sorry, I'm not a computer scientist to create my own cloud platforms.

You know you can just follow a youtube tutorial and get it done in 15 min right?
