Keep track of your piggy bank.

Every time you put coins in or take them out of your piggy bank, write here down how much did you put or take. So you won't have to spend time counting them when you decide to take them all out.

Yes, only coins, no banknots. Well, you actually can easily add support for banknots, but table will become indeed wide.

Backstory

Many years ago I wrote a little script to store info on how much coins I have in my piggy bank. It used SQLite 3 database for it and was hardcoded to rubles.

This year I came up with an idea that it would be good to learn on how to make packages for Python. And with no better ideas I took my piggy bank script to be rewritten to support any currency. Database was thrown away and its place was took by a simple text format.

Usage

This is a CLI program that is broken down to three separate programs:

  • piggybank-put — puts coins in a piggy bank and create a new one if there is no such file;
  • piggybank-take — takes coins from an existsing piggy bank file;
  • piggybank-show — shows summarised information on a piggy bank and, optionally, print a list of transactions.

Common flags

piggybank-* [(-h | --help) | (-v | --version) | --list-currencies] 

--help to show help on what commands you can use.

--version to show version of program.

--list-currencies to show what currencies supported and which one is default.

How to put coins in

piggybank-put <file> [-r | --reverse] <coins> [(-c | --currency) <currency>] 

Here's how to put coins in a piggybank file. It will also create a file if it doesn't exist.

<file> is a name of a piggy bank file wich may not have a .pb extension at the end, it will be added automatically.

<coins> is a set of coins' counts separated with space character. For example: 0 0 0 5 0 4 6 7. By default trailing zeroes will be added from the left. So if you wrote something like 6 0 5 12 then it will be complemented to 0 0 0 0 6 0 5 12 if currency has 8 coins.

--reverse flag reverses the order of coins. By default they come from least significant face value to the most significant one and as stated above being complemented from left so a set shorter than number of coins in a currency, e.g. 5 8 4 will be interpreted as 0 0 0 0 0 5 8 4. And this flag will make it to be interpreted as 5 8 4 0 0 0 0 0. It is convenient if you want to add only coins of low face value (e.g. cents or kopeks).

--currency parameter specifies the currency of a new piggy bank. It will not change currency of an existing piggy bank.

Examples:

piggybank-put example.pb 7 4 3 0 5 -c euro piggybank-put example -r 0 4 6 

How to take coins out

piggybank-take <file> [-r | --reverse] <coins> 

All the parameters are explained above. --currency flag is not applicable here.

Examples:

piggybank-take example.pb -r 0 0 4 

How to see what do you have

piggybank-show <file> [-t | --transactions] 

Without -t flag only summarised information will be printed. --transactions flag tells the program to print out all the transactions stored in a piggy bank.

Examples:

piggybank-show example.pb -t
