Making A Simple Python Budget program
Want to make a budget program in python, then today in this guide I will show you how to make a simple python budget program which will allow you to manage your budget very easily.
Doing your budget is very important, If you are a programmer then you can do your budget by using your python skills and it is very easy to implement budget functionality in python.
What will this budget program be able to do:
- You can add your income sources
- You can add your expenses
- It will tell you your total expenses
- It will calculate and tell your budget
Enough of talking now let’s see how to make this program in code.
Python Budget Program Source Code
import os import sys class Application(): def __init__(self): self.income = 0 self.expenses = 0 self.expense_list =  self.expense_name =  self.income_name =  self.income_list =  self.prompt_income() def income_ask(self): add_income = input('Add income? [y/n]: ') return add_income def income_sum(self): self.income = sum(self.income_list) def expense_ask(self): add_expense = input('Add expense? [y/n]: ') return add_expense def expense_sum(self): self.expenses = sum(self.expense_list) def income_check(self): if not self.income_list: print('Please enter atleast one source of income. ') self.prompt_income() else: return def expense_check(self): if not self.expense_list: print('Please enter atleast one expense. ') self.prompt_expense() else: return def prompt_income(self): x = False while not x: result = self.income_ask() if result == 'y': income_input = int(input('Enter source of income. [Numbers Only]: ')) self.income_list.append(income_input) income_name = input('Enter income name. [Name Only]: ') self.income_name.append(income_name) else: self.income_check() x = True self.income_sum() name = [name for name in self.income_name] income = [income for income in self.income_list] incomedict = dict(zip(name, income)) for k in incomedict: print(k + ': ', '$' + str(incomedict[k])) print('Total user income: ', '$' + str(self.income)) self.prompt_expense() def prompt_expense(self): x = False while not x: result = self.expense_ask() if result == 'y': expense_input = int(input('Enter expense amount. [Numbers Only]: ')) self.expense_list.append(expense_input) expense_name = input('Enter expense name. [Name Only]: ') self.expense_name.append(expense_name) else: self.expense_check() x = True self.expense_sum() name = [name for name in self.expense_name] expense = [income for income in self.expense_list] expensedict = dict(zip(name, expense)) for k in expensedict: print(k + ': ', '$' + str(expensedict[k])) print('Total user expenses: ', '$' + str(self.expenses)) self.uservalue() def uservalue(self): valoutput = self.income - self.expenses if valoutput < 0: print('You are in the negative, you have a deficit of ' + '$' + str(valoutput)) if valoutput == 0: print('You have broken even, you are spending exactly as much as you make.') if valoutput > 0: print('You are in the positive, you have a surplus of ' + '$' + str(valoutput)) another = input('Would you like to run another analysis? [y/n]: ') if another == 'y': self.reset_program() else: self.close_program() def reset_program(self): self.income = 0 self.expenses = 0 del self.expense_list[0:] del self.expense_name[0:] del self.income_name[0:] del self.income_list[0:] self.prompt_income() def close_program(self): print('Exiting Program.') sys.exit(0) if __name__ == '__main__': Application()
Above is the code for this budget program, copy it and paste it into your python file and run the file on your computer or use an online compiler.
This is an command line program has no gui, below is an example output of how this program works when your run it.
Add income? [y/n]: y Enter source of income. [Numbers Only]: 1000 Enter income name. [Name Only]: Job Add income? [y/n]: y Enter source of income. [Numbers Only]: 200 Enter income name. [Name Only]: Real estate Add income? [y/n]: n Job: $1000 Real estate: $200 Total user income: $1200 Add expense? [y/n]: y Enter expense amount. [Numbers Only]: 400 Enter expense name. [Name Only]: Groceries Add expense? [y/n]: y Enter expense amount. [Numbers Only]: 200 Enter expense name. [Name Only]: Recharge Add expense? [y/n]: n Groceries: $400 Recharge: $200 Total user expenses: $600 You are in the positive, you have a surplus of $600 Would you like to run another analysis? [y/n]: n Exiting Program.
First it will ask you to add your income source and income you need to type y or n you need to enter y to enter your income after that it will ask you how much is your income and what is the name of the income.
You can add as many income sources after you need to at least add one to continue after that it will ask you to enter your expenses.
Finally, it will calculate your expenses and income and tell you your budget and if you are overspending. You can create another budget report if not, it will end the program.
So this was the python budget program, you can now track your income and expenses using python programming.
