brinance: Simple command-line accounting

No interface on this one, folks. But it still has the potential to be quite useful. Here’s brinance:


To read the history of brinance, it sounds like a reaction to the relative complexity of things like GnuCash, when the writer just wanted something for personal accounts.

And that sounds about right. brinance can handle credits and debits, multiple accounts and transfers between them.

But if you want recurring credits or debits, interest calculation or something a little more complex, you’ll have to do some footwork.

Having said all that, I should note that there is a tk interface for brinance, written by a different author and designed to run against version 3. It does make brinance a little more accessible, in some senses. Don’t forget to install perl-tk if you want to try it out. 😉
