Installation

  1. Prerequisites: An installed version of beancount and Python >= 3.5
  2. Install it from PyPI by running pip3 install beancount-fava

Usage

  1. Start fava by running fava    /Volumes/Ledger/example.ledger (substitute with the path to your own beancount-file) to run the included web server.
  2. Point your browser at http://localhost:5000 to view the web interface.

fava comes with Gmail-style keyboard shortcuts: Press ? to show an overview of the keyboard shortcuts.

Development

If you want to hack on fava, this will get you up and running:

git clone https://github.com/aumayr/fava.git
cd fava
# using a virtual environment is optional, but recommended
virtualenv -p python3 venv
. venv/bin/activate
make build-js
pip install --editable .

Note that you’ll need to have the newest version of npm and NodeJS installed to build the JavaScript and CSS files.


Caution: Consider this beta-software. Contributions are very welcome :-)
