About 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.

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

Of course, to get to know Firefly III first, and to see if it fits you, please check out these resources:

  • The screenshots so you can see what it looks like;
  • The feature list so you know what it does;
  • The grand theory, which will tell you how Firefly works, and the philosophy behind it;
  • The demo site so you can see what it’s like.

Then what?

If you decide you want to run Firefly III yourself (this is the mandatory next step), you have to install it somewhere. The readme file on GitHub lists all the possibilities.


If you do not like Firefly III, or it’s broken or it does not work, please send me an email or open an issue on Github. I will be happy to help. Please contact me asap when you find security related issues.

If you like Firefly and if it helps you save lots of money, why not send me a dime for every dollar saved. This is a joke, although the Paypal form works just fine, try it!
