monescript is a double-entry plain text accounting system that works in you browser. monescript is a server-less application, all the calculations are performed locally in your browser window without any data leaving your computer.
monescript works with text files formatted as a transaction journal. No modification is made to the original journal, monescript only performs journal analysis and presents financial summary graphs and statistics.
For years I've been using Excel to handle my personal accounting. After stumbiling upon Ledger docs and introduction to double-entry accounting from Beancount I decided to try out plain text accounting.
By default demo shows randomly generated data on the Transactions tab.
You can explore the generated journal format on the Source tab.
If you have a file with monescript journal syntax you can feed it to monescript from the Open tab.
monescript journal syntax
monescript syntax is inspired by Ledger journal syntax. Here is the list of features that are currently supported by monescript parser:
- Transaction format
- YYYY/MM/DD date format
- $ currency
- simple arithmetic value expressions (+, -, *, /)
- notes prefixed with ';'
- line comments prefixed with ';' or '#'
- bucket command
- tag names
- include and year commands (ignored)
There is no restriction on the name of the accounts.
Journal is expected to be balanced, which means that for every transaction has to have source and destination account(s). if journal is not balanced. monescript will not be able to analyze the journal and show an error.
Sample monescript journal file
bucket Assets:Bank:Checking 2017/1/9 * The Doughnut Expenses:Food:Takeout $10.10 Assets:Bank:Checking 2017/1/7 * Pharmacy One Expenses:Pharmacy $22.34 # don't have to specify the source account, when defined with bucket command above 2017/2/1 * PartyShack ; monescript can compute simple expressions, like this tax calculation Expenses:Entertainment ($5.89 * 1.05) Expenses:Clothing $16.72 Assets:Bank:Checking ; You can insert arbitrary comments between transactions 2017/1/13 * Groceries and More Expenses:Food:Grocery $29.32 ; Or for each posting Assets:Bank:Checking 2017/2/3 * Laser Play Expenses:Entertainment $45.96 2017/2/4 * Eastern Gas Expenses:Bills:Gas $47.64 Assets:Bank:Checking $-47.64
