hledger with the tags all clean
hledger is a computer program for easily tracking money, time, or other commodities, inspired by ledger. It is quite limited in features, but lightweight and reliable. For some, it is a bare-bones, simpler, less expensive alternative to Quicken or GnuCash. It is available for free under the GNU General Public License.
hledger aims to help both computer experts and regular folks gain clarity in their finances and time management, but currently it is a little more suited to techies. I use it every day to:
- track spending and income
- see time reports by day/week/month/project
- get accurate numbers for client billing and tax filing
- track invoices
hledger is first a command-line tool, but also provides a web interface (try the demo). Read the manual to learn more, including how we are different from ledger, and get started tracking your numbers!
