hledger (http://hledger.org) is a friendly, robust, cross-platform
program for tracking money, time or other commodities, using
double-entry accounting, simple plain text file formats, and
command-line, curses or web UIs.

I'm very pleased to announce hledger 1.10, including work by release

You'll note this is not 2.0 as previously planned - we will spend a
bit more time on that.  The next major release is expected to be on

Please see http://hledger.org/release-notes#hledger-1.10 for the changes 
(as soon as I can get to those; until then, the package changelogs):


How to get started:

See http://hledger.org/download for all install methods.

One of the easiest is the hledger-install script, which requires only
bash and will build and install the hledger tools in $HOME/.local/bin/:

$ curl -O https://raw.githubusercontent.com/simonmichael/hledger/master/hledger-install/hledger-install.sh
$ less hledger-install.sh # (do security review)
$ bash hledger-install.sh # (add -v for more detail; use bash -x to show commands being run)

or (insecure):

$ curl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/simonmichael/hledger/master/hledger-install/hledger-install.sh | bash

After installation, ensure $HOME/.local/bin is in your $PATH, and try some commands:

$ hledger -h            # quick help
$ hledger help          # list built-in manuals
$ hledger add           # record some transactions
$ hledger               # list available commands

Next, I encourage you to at least skim the tutorials and docs at
