hledger is a computer program for easily tracking money, time, or other commodities, inspired by and compatible with Ledger. It is first a command-line tool, but there is also a web interface and a Haskell library for building your own programs and scripts (hledger is written in Haskell). 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. To get started, see the links to the left.
