MyTab deployed


I finally got around to finishing MyTab on Sunday, the group finance web app I'd been promising my housemates for a while.

I'm not exactly sure how to describe it, but it's kinda the equivalent to that sheet of paper on your fridge that you use to share bills around the house. I wrote it mainly for my current house to use, but if other people find it useful, then that's great.

It's got RSS feeds and some shiny AJAX, which proves that I'm totally down with the kids. (However, the Javascript is optional and it also supports email notifications, so I'm down with the adults too.) It's my first experience writing a Django app, which was mostly an enjoyable experience.

In somewhat of an experiment, it's released under the GNU Affero GPL. Patches welcome, as usual.

This looks nice, just what we need =)

One request though, a resend confirmation email link. Graylisting is a bitch when it comes to confirmation emails. How about just disabling the account if a confirmation link is not clicked within 24h or something.

Just my $0.02 :)

Mmm, yes. that would be a good addition.

I can't automatically enable the account you used to signup, as it could be abused to send that user emails without them requesting it.

This looks nice indeed. Would you mind putting up some more (and larger) screenshots or providing a demo login?

What do you think of Django so far? Are you going to elaborate on your experiences while writing MyTab?

Btw, I like the idea of the license :)

Thanks and Cheers,

Please put a link to the Affero GPL on the fsf/gnu website so they'll know this Affero app exists :-)
