Welcome to the hledger wiki!
This complements the main hledger website and the reference manuals on hledger.org with additional docs, which can be edited more quickly:
- the User Cookbook - how-tos, tutorials, examples, notes..
- the Dev Zone - developer notes, contributor guide..
You can find all content via the sidebar to the right.
This is your wiki! Please edit, improve and use it freely.
- Github wikis help
- editing requires a github account
- edit by web, or by git clone, local edit, git push
- link between wiki pages:
[[Other text|Pagename]]. Pagename is case insensitive and can have spaces.
- link to wiki pages from elsewhere:
https://github.com/simonmichael/hledger/wiki/Pagename. Pagename is case insensitive and can have spaces.
- link to hledger manual sections:
http://hledger.org/manual#anchor. anchor is any manual heading's text, lowercased with punctuation removed and spaces replaced by hyphens.
- when renaming a page, try also to update the links to it
- use the _Sidebar to organize content. This is mirrored to the main docs page hourly. We might include some external (non-wiki) links here.
- Dev Zone content is in the dev/ subdirectory. It has its own _Sidebar, which can only be edited via git. The subdirectory "dev/" does not appear in wiki links or urls. Page names should be unique across all directories. Pages created through the web are always in the top directory; they can be moved into dev/ with git.
