To generate all your invoices, in the paperwork directory:

clait -d paperwork generate

If you want your tax calculation:

clait -d paperwork results quarterly
clait -d paperwork results yearly

And finally, to launch the webapp, use

clait -d paperwork api

If you’ve made a change to an invoice and need to regenerate, just remove the pdf file!
