  • Show HN: Puffin – a minimal terminal UI to manage personal finances

    For historical interest (though to compare you really need to work with them over a period of time), here's a thousand line [Makefile](https://github.com/simonmichael/hledger/blob/2d35b1051/Makef...) that was converted to a [Justfile](https://github.com/simonmichael/hledger/blob/43c93eb37/Justf...). And here's the kind of template I used for multicommand shell scripts when trying those ([ft](https://github.com/simonmichael/hledger/blob/43c93eb37/bin/f...), [tt](https://github.com/simonmichael/hledger/blob/43c93eb37/bin/t...)).
  • Double-Entry Bookkeeping as a Directed Graph
    5 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 10 Apr 2024
    I'm surprised that there is no mentions of a great hacker-friendly plain-text accounting software called `ledger` https://ledger-cli.org/ in this thread. It has amazing documentation when it comes to understanding basic principles of double-entry bookkeeping and goes through many typical situations and usecases. There are also several forks, most popular and advanced is `hledger` https://hledger.org/ (h is for Haskell), which provides some neat features out of the box, such as a simple web interface. All of them are very primitive compared to "professional" accounting software, but in return it offers great opportunities for hacking around while ensuring validity of your books.

    I've been using hledger[1] - similar tool but has more features like balance sheet, income statement generation with a plain text file for the last 3 years and it's been working out great. Before that I used iBank (rebranded as Banktivity) and don't miss it at all.

    I can offer this (warning, crufty real-world scripts ahead!): these [make](https://github.com/simonmichael/hledger/blob/137d825/Makefil...) [files](https://github.com/simonmichael/hledger/blob/137d825/Makefil...) and this [bash script](https://github.com/simonmichael/hledger/blob/a3c300b/bake) have been replaced by this roughly equivalent [Justfile](https://github.com/simonmichael/hledger/blob/137d825/Justfil...) (some old things were commented out, some new things were added).

    I'm only a few weeks in, and just has its own learning curve, but I'm very pleased overall. Cognitive load is down, usability is up, robustness is up.

  • Beancount: Double-Entry Accounting from Text Files
    12 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 30 Jan 2022
    I use hledger-flow [1]. It's an opinionated way of importing csvs into the hledger format. Works really well for me, just export the csvs, write a mapping and you are good to go.

    It supports preprocessing the csvs if you need to clean the data or compute some new fields which is really powerful. Once you are up and running it only needs some minor updates each month to map unidentifiable transactions I can do this in under an hour these days.
