Announcing Budget Zen 3.0 - Self-hostable
Now you can run it yourself.
tl;dr; You can check out and sign up for the 30-day free trial at the PWA/web app.
Budget Zen 2.0 used Userbase for end-to-end encryption, and after noticing its development was basically non-existent for over a year and learning the product was up for sale, I decided to build the end-to-encryption system using open web standards, instead of relying on any specific library to do so; in the process, I also made it much easier to just run it on your own server, so you don't have to trust anyone else!
I was pushed to do it a couple of weeks earlier because Userbase had some downtime which wasn't well communicated.
So, there you have it. Budget Zen 3.0 is now end-to-end encrypted without third parties, you can more easily self-host it, and it still costs €2 / month or €18 / year after a 30-day free trial (no credit card required) if you want the cloud/hosted version. You can sign up for it at app.budgetzen.net.
All customers have already upgraded (meaning they exported their data from 2.0 and imported into 3.0), so 2.0 is no longer available. You can still get its code and build it locally from this commit in GitHub.
Go check it out. I hope it's valuable to you.
Thank you so much for being here. I really appreciate you!
