LedgerTools - A SublimeText pluggin for Ledger CLI

LedgerTools is a Ledger CLI pluggin for Sublime Text.

LedgerTools demo

Features:

  • Syntax definition
  • Auto-align the amounts
  • Makes payee and account insertion easier
  • Auto-detection of non-cleared entries
  • Automatic transaction notification

Installation

The easiest way is to use the PackageControl. Search for the LedgerTools package and install it.

Other solution: just clone it to the Package directory.

git clone https://github.com/etienne-monier/LedgerTools.git ~/.config/sublime_text/Packages/LedgerTools

Some words about how I maintain my journal

I dislike mixing all user transactions with all the payee, account, automatic transaction definitions. What I usually do is to define a main file main.ledger whose content is

; This is main.ledger

include definitions.ledger
include current.ledger

In the same directory, I then have two other files definition.ledger and current.ledger. The first one keeps all commands and automatic transactions.

; This is definition.ledger

account First account
account Second account

payee A payee

tag aTag

= /aReGeX/
    First account     10 EUR
    Second account   -10 EUR

The second one keeps all user transactions.

; This is current.ledger

04/02/2021 A payee
    First account     10 EUR
    Second account   -10 EUR

This distinction is important as the program looks for account, payee and automatic transaction definitions in definition.ledger to work. This file location should be given in the package settings.

Note: This does not mean you can not mix the two files in a single one, but it means you have to define this single file as the definition file in the settings.

Auto-align the amount

The package provides a sublime command ledger_align_amountsto align all dots in amounts at a position specified in the settings via the dot_pos key. This default position is 58.

The associated shortcut is Ctrl+Shift+q.

The amounts can also be automatically aligned as long as: - the automatic_amount_alignment setting is set to true (which is the default), - the current file extension is specified in the valid_ledger_file_ext setting.

 Easy payee and account insertion

How it works?

If, like me, you define payees and accounts to keep a consistent journal, you may have a file with lots of definitions like this:

account Expenses:Books
payee My Favorite Book Shop

account Expenses:Food
payee The Amazing French Restaurant

Then, you only have to specify the filename as the definition_filename setting. Then, two default keymaps are defined: Ctrl+Shift+a to insert an account at the cursor position and Ctrl+Shift+z to insert a payee. A quick panel oppens and you can search whatever you want by typing some words.

What about virtual account?

If, like me, you also use Ledger to budget (e.g. You Need A Budget), then you may have virtual accounts associated to budget.

account Budget:Books
account Budget:Food

Then don't worry, the Budget accounts are also proposed when inserting the account and once inserted, the brackets will be auto-inserted to give that.

2020/07/24 * My Favorite Book Shop
    Expenses:Books                      10 EUR
    Assets:Checking                    -10 EUR
    [Equity:Budget]                     10 EUR
    [Budget:Books]                     -10 EUR

Auto-detection of non-cleared entries

The pluggin assumes you use the cleared entries system.

To explain this, consider a list of entries such as

2020/07/24 * My Favorite Book Shop
    Expenses:Books                      10 EUR
    Assets:Checking

2020/07/25 * Mr Jones
    Expenses:Books                       5 EUR
    Assets:Cheking

2020/07/25 Forno Gusto
    Expenses:Food                        9.50 EUR
    Assets:Cheking

In this list, the first two entries are denoted cleared with a star placed before the payee. The last one (Forno Gusto) is not cleared. This can mean whatever you want. In my case, I use it to denote the transactions that do not appear yet on my online bank register so that, when I type

ledger balance Assets --real --cleared

(notice the --cleared option), the Forno Gusto transaction is not taken into account and I get the same balance as my bank. That helps me to be sure not to make a mistake. When the transaction appear in my bank balance, I simply add a star. Meanwhile, the pluggin highlights the entry which has not been cleared. This helps to see imediatly which entries are still pending.

Notes:

  1. By default, Ledger consider all entries, even those which are not cleared. As a consequence,
ledger balance Assets --real

would take the Forno Gusto transaction into account.

  1. If you don't whant this feature, please modify the Ledger.sublime-syntax file following lines (70-72):
# Non-cleared entry
        - match: '\s+({{payee}})'
          captures:
            1: invalid

to

# Non-cleared entry
        - match: '\s+({{payee}})'
          captures:
            1: markup.italic.desc

Automatic transaction notification

Again, I usually use automatic transaction to maintain my Budget. For that, I define a lots of them in my definition file, like

= /Depenses:Food/
    [Equity:Budgets]                                   1
    [Assets:Budgets:Food]                             -1

The user transactions defined in the current.ledger file hiding an automatic transaction is notified with the hidden transaction detail.
