What are Extensions?

Moneydance contains support for extensions and plugins. These extensions have the ability to add new features and services that weren't originally built-in to Moneydance. Each extension is available in a self-contained file.

Every extension includes a digital signature that is verified each time the extension is loaded. Every extension must be audited and signed by The Infinite Kind before Moneydance will load it. Extensions with invalid or missing signatures will generate an error and will not be loaded unless the customer overrides the error.

You can find the list of currently available extensions here.
There are a number of third-party extensions developed for Moneydance which are available online. Many of these extensions are wonderful tools, but have not been examined by the Moneydance developers for safety or security. Use caution and your own judgement when using these tools.

If you are developer who would like your extension approved and “signed”, or considered for inclusion in Moneydance's extension menu, please contact us.

Moneydance 2017 also contains a new built-in Python script editor which you can use to run simple scripts on your data, or build your own extensions. You can read more about this feature here.

How can I install Extensions?

Moneydance can add extensions using the built-in extension manager, which can be accessed by navigating to Extensions --> Manage Extensions.


From there, you can view your installed extensions, install new ones and remove unwanted ones.


How can I install Extensions if I purchased Moneydance from the Mac App Store?

You can install extensions from the 'Extensions' page on our website. Click on 'Download' for the appropriate extension and then open Moneydance.

Drag the downloaded file, which will have the extension .mxt onto the Moneydance program window. The 'Add Extension' window will appear, and you should select 'Install Extension'.

The extension will then be available under the Extensions menu.
