Double Entry Accounting

Accountant is a set of utilities and scripts that I've developed to allow me to do accounts from the command line. In some way it's similar to (Ledger)[], although it's a lot simpler.


You use accountant by creating (or generating) an account.json file. This is simply a list of transactions and statements about your accounts.
