A command-line and web-based accounting tool; a Haskell rewrite of ledger. This is the old darcs repo, frozen on 2013/4/5; the new repo is on github. (http://hledger.org/code)



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 docs to learn more, including how we are different from ledger, and get started tracking your numbers!
