YNAB announces API

I know that over on the MPU forum we’ve got a bunch of folks using YNAB (You Need A Budget). YNAB announced today that they’ve got an API. I haven’t played around with it yet, but from the looks of it there are some interesting possibilities for automation.


This is amazing. So much potential for Shortcuts, definitely going to dig in.


Any of you guys have tried adding transactions via Workflow?

I could definitely use a primer on how to use these API commands on Workflow. Any tips?

I guess @matthewcassinelli use of Darksky could be of some help in understanding how this works.

Matthew, of all the people in the world I want playing around with the YNAB API it is you! That is super exciting.

Future me…

“Hey Siri, what new transactions do I have?”

I’ve found this Workflow/Shortcut that really helps understanding how it works.

Workflow Link (works on Shortcuts as well)
