Inspired by a recent podcast, I look at the theme of getting the most good from limited resources. Oh, and I don't forget to mention hledger. 🙂

Jonathan Dowland added a dark theme to hledger-ui.

Mail list

  • Forex Accounts Receivable, timing difference between invoice and payment
  • Balancing "equity:conversion" split across postings.


  • How do you all handle grouping your transactions? (business)
  • hledger: csv rule to match amount higher or equal to 200
  • hledger periodic transaction every month except two
  • Mass edit journal entries based on a filter

Fund accounting, PTA sign convention, unspaced account names, reddit monetisation..

Tools for investment tracking, description/payee/note semantics, tag checking,
arithmetic amount expressions, Money Manager EX, CSV conversion situations,
categorising tools, utf-8 encoding, timedot budgets, tax preparation, if tables,
payee cleanup..


  • Thank you for writing hledger (and -ui and -web), it's wonderful work. --Michael Iles

  • Use physical order to create mental order.
