Expense Tracker Python Project

Expense Tracker  Python Project

Project for a Python Expense Tracker

We will construct an expense tracker in this python django project that will keep track of our spending. When filling out the registration form, a person must also provide information about his or her income and the amount of money he or she want to save. Some individuals work every day, thus their earnings may be contributed on a regular basis. On a weekly, monthly, and annual basis, details of costs will be shown in the form of a pie chart. To get started with the Expense Tracker project, you'll need to install Django.

Prerequisites for the project

Before beginning this Python Expense Tracker project, you must have a solid understanding of the Django framework, HTML, CSS, javascript, and Python.

Structure of the Project Files

1. Create a project and an app using the Django framework
2. Models.py is the third module.
3. Admin.py is the fourth module.
4. Urls.py is a Python script that generates URLs.
5. Views.py is the sixth Python module.
