    re 774 how do I debug javascript? Is there a println? :)

    @aumayr
    There is console.log, which prints variables, etc. to the Console

    hey guys, I'm looking to implement my own 404 page within fava. I have the html at hand but I'm not too sure where i can slot it.
    Dominik Aumayr
    @aumayr
    As Fava is a Flask app, just google „flask custom error pages“

    great, that's all the help I need. Thanks!

    I think this is a more accounting / beancount question in general, but maybe s.o. could help me anyway :)? So I've started setting money aside every month for bigger investments (car repair). What really bugs me however is, that (in my mind) this is not fully respected by the income statement. When the bill for car repair comes in, the income statement tells me that I lived beyond my means that month..
    Is this a fact I have to live with (or rather, a question of perspective, because when looking at the timescale of a year everything is fine)?
    or am I doing sth. wrong

    @empwilli_gitlab, when you set money aside, that's a transfer, not an expense right ? So it shouldn't show up in an income statement ?
    Tobias Langer
    @empwilli_gitlab
    That's how far I understand it. The issue is: When I use the money set aside to pay expenses, my income statement says, that I spent "to much" that month.
    I think its a question of the timescale, but I'd prefer to have an adjusted view :)
    Simon Michael
    @simonmichael
    once the money goes to expenses, it should appear on the income statement, no ? Or if you want to actually record the expense in the month when you set it aside, record it as a "prepaid expense", not a transfer
    (which is actually an asset. Assets:Prepaid Expenses:Foo)
    so it is a transfer, but you see what I mean.
    um.. no. I've confused myself.
    I guess the short answer is when you want it to show up in the income statement, is when you should date the expense

    Thought so, thanks for the effort :)

    Hello. Is there a way I can install the latest development version of fava without having to build it?
    I primarily run cygwin, and am unable to build it easily, hence the question
    Jakob Schnitzer
    @yagebu
    You could build a wheel or sdist (with make dist) and then copy that over and install it if you have access to a linux machine (or use something like WSL for that)
    Red S
    @redstreet
    Had no idea about WSL, thanks! Has anyone built fava on WSL? i.e., it is known to build on WSL?
    Jakob Schnitzer
    @yagebu
    I haven't tried, but I don't see any reason why it shouldn't work. We're far from any low-level kernel features so it should work just like on Linux

    hi folks..is there a way to run fava in readonly mode?
    Im using beancount+fava as the treasurer of a local association, and I want to let members see the finances, but not edit it.

    Hi there,
    Is there a way to have fava to display accounts using some meta-data attached to the open statement of each accounts?
    For example, I'm opening an account this way :
    2019-01-01 open Assets:Bank
    name: "1020 - Banque"

    I want "1020 - Banque" to be displayed everywhere instead of "Bank"

    @empwilli_gitlab
    @Ramblurr: Work around, mount the directory as read only?
    JF Burdet
    @jfburdet_twitter

    @Ramblurr: Work around, mount the directory as read only?

    Under linux, you can chmod 0444 the file : then saving the file in the fava editor show 'permission denied'

    Casey Link
    @Ramblurr
    yea that works, however i wanted to allow multiple users to use fava, some with and some without edit access
    perhaps i'll just run two instances of fava
    another question regarding parent accounts. is there a way to see the total of a parent account and all its children?
    (in the income statement)

    Hello all. I just recently discovered (and joyfully adopted) beancount cli-accounting, and am finding fava doing a lot of work i thought i'd have to script on my own. I'm not sure where the best place to ask this is, but the issue i'm having is figuring out how to host beancount+fava on a webhost. I do want to have my data accessible online (consequences considered). To be precise, the functionality of the demo at pythonanywhere.Seeing that fava runs as a daemon i'm a bit stumped as to how that can be accomplished.

    ...Having a background in CGI-like server-side scripts only (Perl, PHP) i'm finding the WSGI routing and running custom daemon on its own host/port as something foreign to me. So i wondered if anyone would care to share advice on what it would take to set up fava on a pythonanywhere account? Perhaps there is a standard/sample configuration that i could use, or any pointers on what i can read-up on to figure further things out on my own? Thanks, and sorry if this is not a suitable place for such questions - couldn't find a forum or anything else for fava.

    have a look at: https://alexjj.com/blog/2016/managing-my-personal-finances-with-beancount/

    empwilli I think he describes somewhere a setup on pythonanywhere

    @oris1024
    Thanks for your reply! I just got to try this. It didn't work for me. Can't trace the problem since i'm simply not understanding how python would load/run fava even in general. Also given the article is from over 3 years ago this can easily have to do with fava having changed too much (and pythonanywhere hosting as well). Maybe i'll poke at it some other time in the future. In the meantime i'll simply enjoy organizing my finances in a not-overly-connected way on my PC where fava is running great :)
    oris1024
    @oris1024
    Figured i'd drop a line here: Found how it's done (own fava setup at pythonanywhere). As it turned out everything's provided here: https://github.com/beancount/fava/blob/master/contrib/pythonanywhere/README.md
    It basically has all the files needed to recreate the same fava demo at own pythonanywhere account. After that it's a matter of substituting example ledger files with own :) Missed in right in the google results i'd been browsing the first time

    Hi, is there a way to specify precisely what file imported entries should go to? It seems to always append to the BEANCOUNT_FILE one. In my case, BEANCOUNT_FILE is comprise of multiple includes.

    @ydewit
    @ydewit nevermind, searching the sources I have found out how to use insert-entry ...

    Guys hi,

    Is it possible to chart difference between 2 accounts ?

    Let say i have 2 accounts
    Income:Business:Company1
    Expenses:Business:Company1

    Right now i see charts for them individually at
    localhost:5000/myledger/account/Income:Business:Company1 and
    localhost:5000/myledger/account/Expenses:Business:Company1

    Can i see chart for "Income:Business:Company1" + "Expenses:Business:Company1" ?

    Jakob Schnitzer
    @yagebu
    Hi @gety9 I also finally found time to reply to your issue. It's currently not possible, but a functionality for more generic charts would be very welcome.

    Greetings. I am considering migrating from GnuCash 3.7. It looks like the old gnucash-to-beancount tool is outdated and unmaintained. Any advice on migrating my old data?
    Adam Gibbins
    @adamgibbins
    [It would surprise me if it didn't still work? Given GnuCash is just sqlite I can't imagine its changed in forever
    Zburatorul
    @Zburatorul
    It turned out to do with the SQL schema changing and the most recent piecash (python lib for gnucash data) not supporting it. That was an easy fix.
    Then, after some more fixes to gnucash-to-beancount itself it finally produced a beancount file.
    However, bean-check complains about syntax error, references to inactive accounts, and more.

    Hi, I just updated my operating system and I got a new version of Fava. The "balance sheet" now correctly shows sums at cost, at market value, or converted to a currency! This is fantastic, a feature I've wanted for a long time. I wanted to say thank you to everyone who was involved in making this or in the Fava project more generally

    hello, Windows installation complains fatal: not a git repository (or any of the parent directories): .git
    Jakob Schnitzer
    @yagebu
    @molikto: how are you installing Fava?
    If you want to install from source, you need to clone the git repository.
