    Example of a polling state machine in C++

  • hledger

    Robust, fast, intuitive plain text accounting tool with CLI, TUI and web interfaces.

    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...)).
