    PotterScholar Yeah, you need a line to calculate the gain/loss, let me show you what I'm doing

    PotterScholar ;ethereum purchases
    2017-07-14 * "Coinbase" "Crypto: Ethereum Purchase"
    Assets:Cryptocurrency:Ethereum 0.51772979 ETH {193.15 USD}
    Expenses:Fees 2.99 USD
    Assets:Checking

    ;ethereum sales
    2017-12-07 ! "<person>" "Crypto: Ethereum Sale"
    Assets:Cryptocurrency:Ethereum -2.55155802 ETH {} @ 427.10 USD
    Expenses:Fees 16.24 USD
    Assets:Checking 1089.77 USD
    Income:Other:Investment-Income

    PotterScholar The gains/losses are in Income:Other:Investment-Income, the basis is maintained in Assets:Crypto:Eth, and the gross profits are in the cash account

    @andrewebdev
    ah ok thx... I'll try that
    Andre Engelbrecht
    @andrewebdev
    hmm, that doesn't work in my case. When I add the extra income line for gain/loss, I get a error: too many missing numbers for currency group 'GBP'
    matrixbot
    @matrixbot
    David Yes, the transaction is balanced, so adding more accounts doesn't make sense. Right now your transaction basically says "I sold eth for £10 and spent £10". There's no room for basis info. You need to modify your transaction to credit the account holding your basis in ETH, then you can add the gain/loss income line.
    David I can better explain in a few hours.
    Andre Engelbrecht
    @andrewebdev
    yeah an explanation would be grand. A lot of the terminology used is going a bit over my head and as much as I read through the docs there are still many things that I miss or am confused about.
    Andre Engelbrecht
    @andrewebdev
    This is what that transaction looks like atm
    2019-05-24 * "EE Top Up"
      Assets:GB:Coinbase:ETH                 -0.05392256 ETH {} @ 196.58 GBP
      Expenses:Communications:Mobile               10.00 GBP
      ;Income:Realized:PnL
    and it balances perfectly, so no PnL. The same goes for all my other transactions
    Andre Engelbrecht
    @andrewebdev
    could it because I'm using "NONE" on my accounts instead of "FIFO/LIFO"?
    Andre Engelbrecht
    @andrewebdev
    ok I figured it out. I had to put the exchange rate inside the curlies as well as using @ -price

    Hi Guys. I have a quick question about the fava option collapse-pattern. I just have this in my journal.beancount file, but it tells me "Invalid option: 'collapse-pattern'" . Anyone know why this wouldn't work?
    ikwtif
    @ikwtif
    help tells you to insert it like this : 2020-01-01 custom "fava-option" "collapse-pattern"
    but that just returns syntax errors
    and when I insert it in like this: "fava-option" "collapse-pattern" ".:.:.*" I get the option error
    ikwtif
    @ikwtif
    so I kind of fixed the syntax errors by putting this inside my accounts.beancount file but still nothing collapses
    2001-01-01 custom "collapse-pattern" ".*:"
    although at this point I think I'm misunderstanding what this option should do

    Anyone know why https://fava.pythonanywhere.com/ is down?
    matrixbot
    @matrixbot
    David It's because I needed to reference it to setup budgets, so now it's down. Sorry everyone!
    David I've had some luck getting cached pages through google

    Is anyone aware of a hotkey that shows/hides accounts with zero balance?
    matrixbot
    @matrixbot

    Jorge Martínez López > <@gitter_zburatorul:matrix.org> Is anyone aware of a hotkey that shows/hides accounts with zero balance?

    No, it seems it's only available as an option. I guess you can change that setting on your beancount file and reload.

    Eugeniu Plamadeala
    @Zburatorul
    How do you all deal with the proliferation of closed accounts? Even if show-closed-accounts is False, accounts with a non-zero balance will always be shown.
    (I have Income accounts that are no longer relevant)
    matrixbot
    @matrixbot
    Jorge Martínez López Sorry Eugeniu tried to post a link and it failed
    Jorge Martínez López showing zero balance accounts and close accounts is configurable as an option
    Eugeniu Plamadeala
    @Zburatorul
    @matrixbot, these options don't work. I have both show-accounts-with-zero balance at false, and show-closed-accounts at false. But as I mentioned in my original post closed accounts with non-zero balance still show up. While it may not make sense to have such asset/liability accounts. Such income/expense accounts do make sense.

    Hi,
    I want to use this plugin > plugin "beancount.plugins.implicit_prices"
    but I'm not quite sure how to run the plugin ?
    Adam Gibbins
    @adamgibbins
    qymab: you simply put plugin "beancount.plugins.implicit_prices" at the top of your beancount file

    qymab: you simply put plugin "beancount.plugins.implicit_prices" at the top of your beancount file

    Already put the syntax, but nothing change in beancount file ?

    I try run the bean-check
    Eugeniu Plamadeala
    @Zburatorul
    @qymab, how did you install the plugin?

    Hi,

    Is there any method to get rid of old queries? How do one run queries inside the beancount file?

    Glen Schrader
    @gschrader
    @llsjk_twitter it's kept in the browser local storage, F12 in chrome under Application

    Hi,
    how do you use the Import tool from Fava? I wrote my import script, it asks to map the account to the files in the import dir, but nothing happens after I press the "Move" button. Thanks!
    Eugeniu Plamadeala
    @Zburatorul
    @dev4light, if you are not committed to using the fava import, I recommend beancount-import and finance-dl, a duo of packages that I use and work well.
    Jakob Schnitzer
    @yagebu
    @dev4light: If you entered account and file name but nothing happens on "Move", that sounds like a bug. If there's some error moving the file, it should show a notification with the error, otherwise it should show a notification on success. Are there errors in the browser console?

    varac Hej, I'm struggeling how to exclude an account from i.e. the balance sheet. Limiting it to one account by choosing one from the Account field above is intuitive, but how to exclude one ?
    varac Nevermind, just found it on the filter help page (I was looking in the account section, not in the Filter by tag, link section)

    Hi, I am a bit confused by how fava shows profits.

    When I enter expenses entry, it gets reflected in net profit on the main dashboard page

    Eugeniu Plamadeala
    @Zburatorul
    @yohanesyuen, are you talking about the profit = income - expenses formula, or the way things are displayed?

    ryantm In beancount, is it possible to write a posting costing multiple commodities? Like say I trade one chicken for a hammer and $5.
    matrixbot
    @matrixbot
    ryantm I should say what I'm trying to do: I'm trying to make a TXN that represents me manufacturing something. Like screwing together 4 SCREWS and 1 MECHANISM to make 1 WIDGET.
