Does anybody know how Digit is built? I really like there service and was curious what APIs and frameworks they use.
Not sure of exact API's of the apps internals, but the application looks to be built with Erlang using the Cowboy framework.
Cool cool. Thanks Jake. Appreciate the reply.
Thompson, I've been wondering this as well. I know they use https://plaid.com/ to collect some of the banking data but other than that, I'm love to know.
wow, that's a gorgeous site.
I had a hunch it was plaid. Love messing with APIs so will probably try some things with this next.
Thompson, you might try reaching out to their CTO on Medium about their infrastructure:
Big fan of Digit. The savings might as well go directly to Apple based on how I've been using it over the last year. If you want to sign up use my referral code and we both get free monies: digit.co/r/Z1qce
Seems like they get to mine a lovely amount of data about how different incomes are spending money.
I've been eyeing this one for a little while now... may have to give it a go. :)
Thompson, is it safe to assume you'd recommend it to anyone?
It seems sketchy at first, but I've been using it since summer and no bad experiences. I managed to save a good 500 that I never knew I had.
I've been using it for over a year. Having a little friend in your bank account for quick access to transactions and info is amazing. Friendly, full of soul, and it saves money. One of the best "apps" I've used in a long time and it doesn't even have a UI!
I really like the, 'out of sight, out of mind' idea. I've never been great at saving without some sort of help like this. I'm currently using SmartyPig, but I like how Digit picks the savings amount for you based on how you've been spending.
