Roughly two years ago I started blogging about the challenges of developing a new Mac app. I decided to do so after reading Brent Simmons great series on Vesper development. I thought it was a great way to 1. structure my thoughts and 2. help the community.
It’s been one of the most fun times I’ve had in years. The kick I get out of creating something from nothing* is not easily found anywhere else.
Also worth mentioning is the Mac community: all fellow Mac developers I engaged with were very helpful and responsive, I’m extremely thankful for that. Thank you.
Enough rambling, about the app I’ve been -indirectly- blogging about: It’s called Denarius and it’s a Personal finance Mac app. For years I controlled my personal finances with excel; existing Mac apps had a lot to offer but they required a lot of micromanagement as well.
My goal for Denarius was simple: the app should tell you all you need to know with minimal effort.
I hope you like it, you can know all about it here. And you can get in touch with me via Twitter at @MarcMasVi
Will update you on how the app does and what I will be working on next.
* leveraging the awesome work of Apple developers who worked on all the frameworks I use.
