The transformer object allows Developers to easily combine and alias budget categories.

Transformers have the same key structure as Budgets, but accepts string values.

If you want to merge SPENDiD categories together, just use the same alias across multiple properties. We'll combine everything for you in the response.

🚧

Transformers must map ALL expense categories

Transformers must provide aliases for all core budget categories.

This is to avoid confusion and ensure consistency and usability of the transformed response.
