  • moneymanagerex

    Money Manager Ex is an easy to use, money management application built with wxWidgets

    I'm surprised never seeing any reference to MoneyManager Ex[1] in these threads. I've been using it for a year, syncing my database with Syncthing (as you do with GNUcash) and it's simply awesome. It's more aimed towards personal finances though, as it uses single-entry accounting.

    Still, highly recommend. Open-source, all platforms, polished, active development.

  • beancount

    Beancount: Double-Entry Accounting from Text Files.

    I was a Gnucash user for a decade before switching to [beacount](https://github.com/beancount/beancount). Can't see myself ever going back.

  • gnucash_general_journal

    GnuCash csv General Journal

    The problem I have with gnucash is handling over data to an accountant to do yearly tax etc...

    I have written https://github.com/dorfsmay/gnucash_general_journal and it help somehow but it still is a lot of work for them and can be confusing if they're not willing to spend the time on it + time they spend is money they charge me.

    I plan to change this to output to OFX sheets separating the different accounts, hoping it helps.

    I'm surprised there are no standard for accounting data and would love to hear from accountants what would help them importing data in their systems.

  • data-importer

    theres some third parties that give you an API directly I believe. Firefly III lists salt edge and nordigen.
