I created the DebtInsights extension ten? years ago and now it's broken. It's been years since I was doing Java dev and I don't have time to work on it. If anyone has time I'm happy to answer any questions.

    Is it broken, what needs fixing?

    The fonts need to conform to the current styling. Not sure if there is a call for that.
    The drop down menus on the summary page (Enhanced Credit Cards) crash the app
    The widget that pops up from the Extensions menu displays blank and crashes the app

    On it. Already identified the popup crash.

    Can I presume the IK repo for MoneydanceOpen is the latest code, or do you have your own repo?

    Are you aware of any financial / calculation issues with your extn and the current version, or is it simply the three points above?

    Awesome! Yes the IK repo is it. No calculation problems, just display and program flow as mentioned above.

    Also, this should go without saying but add yourself to the credits, please!

    THANK YOU!

    just a user - I have the same list that I published last September here.

    For me, the fonts are cosmetic, but it would be nice if they conformed.

    Ok. I believe I have fixed up debtinsights and it’s ready to go. If anyone wants to test/play before I release it, shout?

    … PS - I have also had to rework/rebuild some of the calculation methods to fix a few issues, including… - sub accounts - handling/conversions from non base currencies - allowing the calculations to switch when the balance type changes - excluding inactive accounts everywhere and from (recursive)balances

    So any testers welcome…

    just a user - haven't tested extensively yet, but all the former bugs (freezes) seem gone, and the testing I have done seems good.

    The fixed, upgraded, and much enhanced Debt Insights extension (build 1000) is now ready and tested. It’s just awaiting IK to sign and upload.

    If I might say a lot of work has been put into this extension and it has come out well.

    It can provide a useful tool for those managing credit card debt and even those just wanting to keep on top of their cards.
