Gnucash to Beancount Converter

Convert your Gnucash Sqlite3 file to a Beancount text ledger.

Requires Python 3.3+


pip install gnucash-to-beancount


gnucash-to-beancount my-ledger.gnucash > my-ledger.beancount


git clone
cd gnucash-to-beancount
python -m venv -p python3.6 .venv
source .venv/bin/activate
python develop

The tests are still primitives using diff with golden files. If shows nothing, all is good. :)
