re: personal finance
@PeteMoss I find Beancount pretty nice for a plain text accounting solution. I wrote a couple of of plugins and importers to keep my journal organized and import data from my bank every month. It’s just text, so the journal will remain forever readable (but the Fava frontend can also present it in a graphical way with charts).
As a downside, the versioning situation is a bit messed up atm:
v3 is in development but too unstable for daily use, so it’s recommended to stay with
v2 for now.
@jookia @PeteMoss so basically you're saying it has some properties you dislike ;; perhaps even related to precision but not easily explainable?
Because for Euro/Dollar/Cents the (h)ledger seems very much capable of anything.
Never managed stock or other weirdly-precise amounts before. Ledger gets the precision from context (e. g. "1,50 EUR" says "oh, apparently EUR is a currency, using a comma and has two digits")
