ledger2beancount - configuration file for ledger2beancount(1)
The following options may be needed for ledger2beancount to interpret your ledger files correctly. date_format <string> The date format used in your ledger file (default: %Y-%m-%d). date_format_no_year <string> The date format for dates without the year when ledger's Y/year directive is used (default: %m-%d). ledger_indent <int> Sets the indentation level used in your ledger file (default: 4). decimal_comma true|false Parses amounts with the decimal comma (e.g. 10,00 EUR). Set this option to true if you use option --decimal-comma in ledger. hledger true|false Tells ledger2beancount whether to attempt to parse hledger(1)-specific features.
beancount_indent <int> Sets the indentation level for the generated beancount file (default: 2). operating_currencies A list of frequently used currencies. This is used by fava, the web UI for beancount. automatic_declarations true|false Emit account and commodity declarations. (Default: true) Note: the declarations done in ledger via account and commodity declarations are always converted. If this option is true, declarations are created for those which have not been explicitly declared in ledger but used. account_open_date <string> The date used to open accounts (default: 1970-01-01). commodities_date <string> The date used to create commodities (default: 1970-01-01). beancount_header <file> Specifies a file which serves as a beancount "header", i.e. it's put at the beginning of the converted beancount file. You can use such a header to specify options for beancount, such as option "title", define plugin directives or beancount query information. ignore_marker <string> Specifies a marker that tells ledger2beancount(1) to ignore a line if the marker is found. keep_marker <string> Specifies a marker that tells ledger2beancount(1) to take a line from the input that is commented out, uncomment it and display it in the output. convert_virtual true|false Specifies whether virtual postings should be converted. If set to true, virtual postings in brackets will be made into real accounts. (Virtual postings in parentheses are always ignored, regardless of this option.) account_map Specifies a hash of account names to be mapped to other account names. account_regex Specifies a hash of regular expressions to replace account names. commodity_map Specifies a mapping of ledger commodities to beancount commodities. metadata_map Specifies a mapping of ledger metadata keys to corresponding beancount keys. payee_tag and payer_tag Specify a metadata tag (after the mapping done by metadata_map) used to set the payee. payee_split Specifies a list of regular expressions to split ledger's payee field into payee and narration. You have to use the named capture groups payee and narration. payee_match Specifies a list of regular expressions and corresponding payees. The whole ledger payee becomes the narration and the matched payee from the regular expression becomes the payee. postdate_tag <string> Specifies the metadata tag to be used to store posting dates. (Use the empty string if you don't want the metadata to be added to beancount.) auxdate_tag <string> Specifies the metadata tag to be used to store auxiliary dates (also known as effective dates; or date2 in hledger). (Use the empty string if you don't want the metadata to be added to beancount.) code_tag <string> Specifies the metadata tag to be used to store transaction codes. (Use the empty string if you don't want the metadata to be added to beancount.) link_match Specifies a list of regular expressions that will cause a tag to be rendered as a link. link_tags Specifies a list of metadata tags whose values should be converted to beancount links instead of metadata. Tags are case insensitive and values must not contain whitespace. currency_is_commodity Specifies a list of commodities that should be treated as commodities rather than currencies even though they consist of 3 characters (which is usually a characteristic of a currency). Expects beancount commodities (i.e. after transformation and mapping). commodity_is_currency Specifies a list of commodities that should be treated as currencies (in the sense that cost is not retained). Expects beancount commodities (i.e. after transformation and mapping).
