Buxfer – Automatic Data Backup

February 15th, 2011

A month ago, Buxfer.com went down & took down a month’s worth of data along with it. Thankfully I had a CSV export of my data before the website went down.

After that, I wrote a simple utility script that will automatically do a full CSV export of Buxfer accounts data and email it. At the start of the script, there are couple of PHP variables that you can use to customize it – your buxfer id and password, from email address, to email address, email content etc. To automate it completely, use crontab to schedule its execution and rest in peace :) .

I have hosted the code at GitHub. Do check it out and let me know your feedback. Or better yet, fork it and add your bells and whistles.

You can access the GitHub repository here.
