The hledger-ui package

[ Tags: console, finance, gpl ] [ Propose Tags ]

This is hledger's curses-style interface. It is simpler and more convenient for browsing data than the command-line interface, but lighter and faster than hledger-web.

hledger is a cross-platform program for tracking money, time, or any other commodity, using double-entry accounting and a simple, editable file format. It is inspired by and largely compatible with ledger(1). hledger provides command-line, curses and web interfaces, and aims to be a reliable, practical tool for daily use.

Readme for hledger-ui-1.4

[back to package description]
A curses-style text user interface for the hledger accounting tool.

hledger-ui is the new name for hledger-vty. Revived in 2015, this
package is intended to be installed as standard by all hledger users,
except those on (native) Windows, where it is not supported.

hledger-ui currently allows browsing the balance, register and print
reports, with drill-down and scrolling.
