Hi all,

I've made some progress on the Nextcloud app. It's still a WIP but I've been using it to add transactions, edit transactions, and run basic reports all through the web. Here is what's done so far.


Garret and I were emailing a little behind the scenes and I might go ahead and and put up a demo site for people in the hledger community to try without having to set up your own Nextcloud. I'll keep you posted.

Thanks for the work and update Ryan and Garret. A demo would be great!

Give it a shot and let me know what you think.

  1. It defaults to a balance sheet report.
  2. Click an account name to view the account register.
  3. Click the edit button on a transaction to edit the transaction.
  4. Try adding transactions.
I hope you don't mind me grabbing the hledger.cloud domain. Nextcloud doesn't work without a domain and that one was on a few bucks.

I'd call this "proof of concept" software. There are a lot of hacks and shortcuts and I am brand new to Nextcloud and VueJS, so learning as I go.

When I try to register, I seem not to receive a verification code. (Two attempts, one of them an hour ago.)

The emails come directly from the server so they could be blocked by your host due to lack of reputation. I created you an account and emailed you the creds directly. Let me know if that works.

Hi Ryan,
nice, nice job.
which hardware and software platform are you using (or you recommend)?
I gave up to setup a nextcloud instance on an old laptop because performances were awful

My kind regards

Ryan,

Great! This worked for me on the first try, very nice! I also like the disclaimer when signing up for an account.

The new Vue UI is clean and simple which I like. I will be posting a new update on my work on the static Linux builds very soon (thankfully, I've been relatively successful with this approach, but still working on it). https://github.com/37Rb/nextcloud-hledger/issues/17

Very cool! Is the statically linked build going to be available here? https://hledger.org/download.html#gnulinux

Maybe that will happen, if I can get it reliability building on a CI system that is nicely integrated with GitHub. Getting the build to finish a little quicker might help too.

Hi Diego,

Sorry, I just noticed many of my notifications from this group have been labeled spam by gmail and I didn't see this.

I'm not enough a NextCloud expert to recommend hardware but I'm using a Digital Ocean droplet

Basic - Premium AMD
Shared CPU
1 vCPU
1 GB
25 GB
1 TB

I installed NextCloud with Cloudron. It's free to manage 2 apps.


They recommend min 512MB memory.

Don't worry

Ok
I read it. Maybe I demanded too much from a laptop with a 1GB memory running a lot of services :-)

Many thanks anyway.

My kind regards
