Starling bank is what is commonly referred to as a challenger bank. They do not have branches on the high street. You will only find them online and on your portable devices. To get an account, you follow a signup process using their app on your phone or tablet and once accepted you get a debit card in the post.
You can use them as a normal bank as you get a sort code, account number and all the other relevant bits. You can even set up Direct Debits.
Once you have an account, unlike the mainstream banks – you can signup for a developer account. This will then allow you to access your bank via code. It is this code that I am going to use to create a savings tracker.
You need to know how to use GitHub on your Raspberry Pi. My Repository is found here: https://github.com/vwillcox/Starling_Goal_Tracker
