What is Firefly III?

Firefly III is a self-hosted manager for your personal finances. It's written in PHP 7.3. It's opinionated, which means it follows the mantra that I, the developer like.

Can I try it?

Yes, there is a demo site where you can play with a sample administration.

Is it multi-user?

Yes. For security reasons Firefly III opens up the registration form only for the first user, but anybody can register an account if you enable this under Administration > Configuration. Keep in mind that you won't be able to share your administration.
