@sol:matrix.orgsol Thanks, nobodyinperson. The pie-chart was actually for a friend who is already using a pie chart for expenses. I wanted to show that what she's doing is possible with PTA as well. 11:12:03

It is possible, just not implemented yet 🙂

@sol:matrix.orgsolIt'd be great if hledger-plot could be packaged with hledger in the future so that it could be downloaded as an exe file by Windows users.11:31:19
@sol:matrix.orgsol I'm a Linux user, and am (somewhat) comfortable with pip install etc., but not everyone would be. 11:33:59
@NobbZ:matrix.orgNobbZI am not a friend of bundling to much functionaility into a single thing. In fact I appreciate the fact that plot (or utils) can be developed and released outside of the hledger development and release cycle11:34:05
@sol:matrix.orgsolYes. I meant as a separate download... The way hledger-web, etc., are separate downloads.11:49:17
@sol:matrix.orgsolAnd that is not to chain hledger-plot's development to hledger's but to make it easier to install... If it was part of the same .zip file, that would help greatly.11:50:29
@sol:matrix.orgsol*separate packages, not separate downloads. I download them as a single zip file.11:50:54
@nobodyinperson:matrix.orgnobodyinpersonI don't have experience with bundling one-click installers for Python. It is possible I believe. Maybe someone can try it out.13:57:47
@edkedk99:matrix.orgedkedk99 I think bundling hledger-plot to work with Windows may be a big hassle because it has some dependencies that may not be platform independent. sol: Did you test in windows? 15:46:12
@simonmic:matrix.orgsmI would guess python's single-exe bundling tools, I would guess they work even on windows. That said, I'm not sure folks who need a single-exe installer will be the same folks who can easily master hledger-plot's CLI15:49:37

@il:libera.chatilthat looks like too many slashes15:53:11
@sm[i]:libera.chatsm[i]indeed! buggy output from the matrix irc bridge there16:07:57

No. I use Linux. But I'm trying to get a Windows using friend to start using PTA with hledger.

@simonmic:matrix.orgsmI think for those folk built in charting is the only reasonable thing20:44:53
@simonmic:matrix.orgsm I seem to have reasonably effective choosing of text colour to contrast with light or dark terminal background now, except in emacs and in transparent terminals.20:58:47
@simonmic:matrix.orgsmcurrently commands list shows the banner in green on light terminals, or in yellow on dark terminals. Not terribly pretty, but maybe it means we can use colour where otherwise we couldn't20:59:51

@redacted:libera.chatredacted joined the room.00:36:20
@redacted:libera.chatredacted Recently started using BTC, so I need FIFO lot tracking for tracking capital gains. I know hledger doesn't currently support this, but is there a 3rd party tool or other workflow that works reasonably well with hledger for this 00:38:23
@redacted:libera.chatredacted I've been tinkering with moving to beancount since it does this well, but hledger has been working well for the rest of my workflow so far, and I'm concerned that I'll put in a bunch of work to migrate and find that something *else* about beancount's workflow is a headache. 00:39:55
@simonmic:matrix.orgsm redacted: the hledger-move script, and close command, both help a bit 02:11:53
@redacted:libera.chatredacted Looks like hledger-move could help a bunch! I'll try this out 02:22:55
@redacted:libera.chatredactedThank you!02:22:55
@simonmic:matrix.orgsm np redacted, I found it handy 02:23:31
@simonmic:matrix.orgsm well "handy" is going a bit fair but definitely reduced pain 02:24:02
