D&D 5e Point-Buy Calculator

This point-buy calculator covers the D&D 5e Player’s Handbook and includes the ability score point cost for each increment between 8 and 15, racial bonuses and penalties based on race and subrace selection, a total ability score, the resulting ability score modifier, a total point cost, and a summary of all racial traits at the end. There’s also a reset button following the racial traits section.

23/07/2015 edit: Updated Dwarves to match the Player’s Handbook Errata which fixes one mistake – Dwarves are proficient with the light hammer, not the throwing hammer.
