hledger: Command-line interface for the hledger accounting tool

[ console, finance, gpl, library, program ] [ Propose Tags ]

This is hledger’s command-line interface. Its basic function is to read a plain text file describing financial transactions and produce useful reports. 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.

Build with support for multithreaded execution


On POSIX systems, enable curses support for auto-detecting terminal width.


A compatibility flag, set automatically by cabal. If false then depend on time >= 1.5, if true then depend on time < 1.5 together with old-locale.


Use -f <flag> to enable a flag, or -f -<flag> to disable that flag. More info


Note: This package has metadata revisions in the cabal description newer than included in the tarball. To unpack the package including the revisions, use 'cabal get'.

Readme for hledger-0.27

[back to package description]


lightweight, portable, dependable accounting tools

hledger is a computer program for easily tracking money, time, or other commodities, on unix, mac and windows (and web-capable mobile devices, to some extent).

It is first a command-line tool, but there are also curses-style and web interfaces, and a Haskell library (http://hackage.haskell.org/package/hledger-lib) for building your own programs and scripts (hledger is written in Haskell). hledger was inspired by and is largely compatible with Ledger. hledger is free software available under the GNU General Public License v3+.

hledger aims to help both computer experts and regular folks to gain clarity and control in their finances and time management, but currently it is a bit 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

Though limited in features, hledger is lightweight, usable and reliable. For some, it is a simpler, less distracting, more future-proof alternative to Quicken or GnuCash.
