    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

    @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.
    matrixbot
    @matrixbot
    ryantm I think I figured it out with something like:
    ryantm 2020-11-11 * "Manufacturing" Assets:Inventory 1 WIDGET { 30 USD } Assets:Inventory -4 SCREWS { 10 USD } Assets:Inventory -1 MECHANISM { 10 USD }

    @matrixbot, I see what you're trying to do. I don't know how to do that, but I suggest you ask on the beancount mailing list. It's quite active and you'll get a response.

    ryantm Do you have to do something special to turn on the budget plugin in Fava?
    ryantm I added a custom directive for a monthly budget, but I don't see anything in the charts.
    matrixbot
    @matrixbot
    ryantm posted an image: image.png
    ryantm Eugeniu Plamadeala (Gitter): I don't see anything about the budget on the link you gave me.
    ryantm Looks like my image didn't go through to Gitter.

    You're showing the journal view. The link I gave you is supposed to show "changes". Some green and red numbers appear next to the entries, representing whether you went overbudget or not.

    File "/usr/local/bin/fava", line 7, in <module>
    from fava.cli import main
    File "/usr/local/lib/python3.5/dist-packages/fava/cli.py", line 89

    ryantm dnjkalnvfjdkln (Gitter): Can you post what command you typed and the full error message, if that isn't the full error message?

    xuhcc dnjkalnvfjdkln (Gitter): Looks like you need to install python 3.6 or later. Python 3.5 does not support f-strings afaik
    dnjkalnvfjdkln
    @dnjkalnvfjdkln
    fava and path to my file
    Adam Gibbins
    @adamgibbins
    That is as xuhcc said, you need python 3.6, you're running 3.5
    s/3.6/3.6 or newer/

    nice thanks, ill try and install
    appreciate the help!

    Hi again, sorry!
    I use MX Linux, installed Python 3.9
    in usr /local/ bin, when fava is run the program searches for python 3.5 same as above Traceback (most recent call last):
    File "/usr/local/bin/fava", line 7, in <module>
    from fava.cli import main
    File "/usr/local/lib/python3.5/dist-packages/fava/cli.py", line 89
    print(f"Running Fava on http://{host}:{port}")
    Adam Gibbins
    @adamgibbins
    prefix fava with the name of your 3.9 binary
    python39 /usr/bin/fava or whatever
    dnjkalnvfjdkln
    @dnjkalnvfjdkln

    Ran the following:

    python3.9 /usr/local/bin/fava

    Traceback (most recent call last):
    File "/usr/local/bin/fava", line 7, in <module>
    from fava.cli import main
    ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'fava'

    @yagebu
    You'll need to install Fava for Python 3.9 - so uninstall it first, and then install it with pip3.9 so that it is installed for Python 3.9 (currently it's installed at /usr/local/lib/python3.5/dist-packages/fava, so 3.9 won't find it, hence the ModuleNotFoundError)
    dnjkalnvfjdkln
    @dnjkalnvfjdkln
    Completed!! Thank you
    I uninstalled 3.5 on synaptic package manager
    switched to 3.9, and was able to run FAVA
    Take Care

    I apologize again for asking for help, I posted this in Beancount-Mode Github, not sure if this would be answered, Can you assist as you did for fava?

    I loaded the beancount.el file for emacs
    i receive the following issues:

    When I try beancount mode: Alt-x beancount-mode I get an error:
    (beancount-highlight-transaction-at-point): (void-function beancount-highlight-transaction-at-point)

    When I open emacs:
    Warning (initialization): An error occurred while loading `/home/family281/.emacs.d/init.el':
    Symbol's value as variable is void: completion-category-default

    I have been trying to get extensions running in Fava but without success.

    Installed them with pip --user. And have put 2000-01-01 custom "fava-extension" "fava_investor" "{}"in the top om my beancount file.

    When starting Fava the modules fail to load. What am I missing?

    Running MacOS.
    Extensions I am trying to use are Fava-investor and Fava-Envelope

    @alexjj
    Aside from pythonanywhere are there any good free hosting options for fava?
    Eugeniu Plamadeala
    @Zburatorul
    There's no place like localhost :)

    @parseaus , You gotta give us an error message or something.

    How do one save the sort order permanently?
    putzwasser
    @putzwasser
    Not fava specific, but rahter beancount related: Can I create a lot specifing a total cost/price instead of a price per unit? https://beancount.github.io/docs/beancount_language_syntax.html#costs-and-prices says it is possible to use @@ for the price, but I'm wondering if that's possible for lots, too?
    Writing {@@ 315 EUR} in the lot part throws an error.
    Martin Blais
    @blais
    Try the total syntax,e.g. { # 315 EUR}
    The full syntax is { <per-unit> # <total> <currency>} and you can leave either the first part out
