chkbk: Simpler than some others

I’ve found a few personal finance tools in the past year, most recently brinance and clipf. Here’s another one: chkbk.


chkbk isn’t in Arch or AUR and doesn’t appear in Debian either, which is a shame because it’s not a bad little program.

It behaves much like you might expect, keeping an account for checking and another for savings.

You can make deposits and withdrawals from either, show balances and account histories.

Supposedly printing is possible too, although I don’t have a printer so I haven’t tried it.

If you have very simple banking needs, or if don’t care to learn the complexity of something like clipf, this might be an option.
