This Week In Hledger 2024-02-08

sm
I worked on refactoring and debugging the budget report for https://github.com/simonmichael/hledger/issues/2071 .
Also, tweaked close tags, docs, and added to the PTA FAQ: https://plaintextaccounting.org/FAQ#where-are-debits-and-credits-why-are-some-balances-negative .
I shared this time report that I like:

# what happened (this week by default ?) Show simplified time categories, largest first, grouping some similar subaccounts together.
@twhat *ARGS:
    hledger -f "$TIMELOG" bal -b thisweek -e tomorrow -WATS -2 --alias '/.*:(res|adm|it)\b/=_:\1' "$@"

In this week's post, I share my R program for generating random ledger/hledger transactions. Useful if you want to have some dummy transactions for showing how some feature of hledger works without having to use real data. https://hledgerfan.com/the-code-to-generate-random-hledger-transactions

Matrix chat
CSV conversion, bookkeeping situations, mixing balances and changes in a report, include vs -f, tracking saving goals, amazon prime fees, paisa..

Mail list
Foreign currency accounting, adding custom tags with close, multiple postings vs multiple transactions..

If you know how to get your transactions downloaded from your bank and don't ever want to leave the command line, hledger is great for you -- I've been using hledger since 2019 and love every minute of it.
