Ghostfolio reaches 1’000 Stars on GitHub

Ghostfolio, the open-source personal finance management software, has hit a major milestone by reaching 1’000 stars on GitHub. This blog post reflects on Ghostfolio’s recent achievements, highlighting its open-source community collaboration, platform expansions, and future developments.

Open Source community collaboration

Since its launch in 2021, the project with the clean and intuitive graphical user interface has accumulated over 100’000 pulls from Docker Hub and received contributions from 38 developers and counting. These efforts have resulted in a robust and user-friendly platform that empowers busy people to take control of their personal finances. In addition, Ghostfolio has attracted over 250 members from around the world to its Slack community, where they can connect and share ideas about investing.

The adoption of Ghostfolio highlights the power of open-source software and the value of community-driven development, which has definitely exceeded all our expectations. The open-source code allows anyone to contribute to its development, review its progress, and suggest further improvements.

Platform integrations and internationalization

Thanks to the work and dedication of the community, Ghostfolio has expanded onto platforms like Umbrel and Unraid.

These self-hosting platforms allow users to run applications on their own hardware rather than rely on a SaaS offering. As a result, Ghostfolio has become accessible to an even wider range of users who would like to take control of their wealth management.

Additionally, the application has been translated into Dutch, French, German, Italian and Spanish for investors who prefer to use Ghostfolio in their native language.

What’s next for Ghostfolio?

As the project continues to evolve, we can expect to see even more exciting developments and innovations around Ghostfolio which guides users through the process of tracking their assets, such as stocks, ETFs, or cryptocurrencies. Especially in the areas of data import and portfolio analysis.

We are honored to be a part of this vibrant and growing community, and we look forward to collaborating and learning together. If you are a web developer and interested in personal finance, please join our Slack channel or connect with @ghostfolio_ on Twitter. We are happy to discuss ideas and get you involved.

Thank you for all your feedback and support.

Here’s to many more stars!
