A6XDraft ideas for a LedgerMode {{Tasks:113}} (2003.11.23)


1. Idea

I want to be able to use Emacs for my double-entry accounting so that I don't have to start GnuCash. I would like it to be emacs-wiki compatible so that I can publish it as an emacs-wiki file. I can begin with having all of my entries in a GeneralLedger wiki page. Each entry can be of the form

Date{{Finance:GUID}}Transaction name / notesAccountAmount

The amount would be expressed as either Amount (credit) or -Amount (debit).

I want to be able to quickly cycle or complete accounts, and I think I'll be able to do that with hippie-expand or some way to choose accounts easily.

  • I want to be able to see a summary of the balances of accounts.
  • I want to be able to view income/expense reports aggregated by month.
  • I want to be able to see expense reports per month.
  • I want to allow split transactions.
