Hi 

https://orgmode.org/worg/org-contrib/babel/languages/ob-doc-ledger.html

Points out how to use ledger within org mode.

Is there any simpler solution?

Regards

How do you wish it to be simpler?  What is it you wish to do?

Do you mean simpler accounting in org-mode, or do you mean simpler
ledger-integration?

You can always tangle your ledger-data and use a ledger commandline
client. Also Emacs has direct support for ledger. Here’s a setup via
use-package:

(use-package ledger-mode :ensure t :defer 20
  :config
  (org-babel-do-load-languages
   'org-babel-load-languages
   '((ledger . t))))

Best wishes,
Arne

As other pointed out, you are not describing what you want to
accomplish, thus is impossible to suggest anything concrete. However, I
would like to suggest to look at Beancount and beancount-mode as
alternatives to Ledger as plain text accounting tools.

Cheers,
Dan

This is what I meant.

The example in this link is ok, also the output (the result of the
ledger operation) is not very nicely formatted.

If "simpler" means just making entries into your ledger.dat file using 
orgmode you may wish to refer to Sacha Chua's capture template for that 
very purpose. She posted it a few years ago.

ledger does allow you to control, in detail, how the output should be
formatted.  The default output is suitable for a console display but you
can modify this through appropriate arguments to the ledger command line
via babel.  For instance, I have this line in my org file for generating
a balance of my assets:

,#+call: year2020[:cmdline -V --format "%-20A %14T\n" bal --flat assets ]()

where year2020 is a ledger src block which covers my 2020-21 tax year.

You will need to look at the ledger documentation, which is intensive,
for how to specify the format string.  Ledger does come with an Emacs
info file: (ledger3) Format Strings

I am not sure I understand this (I admit I never used ledger, I used for
some time gnucash)

Do you mean this?

Thanks, it seems that beancount is not in Ubuntu, and beancount-mode is
not available as a emacs package.

Do you have any pointers?

Thanks

i don't know if this is the best, but for some reason i had it so that
ledger goes into a block [used to be example or so, now is ledger],
and then post-process it with a shell source block.  perhaps this will
make more sense [in the distant past it made more sense to me].

when i process it, i call the source block, which means to run the
shell, which calls the ledger command on the data i keep in org.  for
some reason it outputs each line to the minibuffer, which is a bit
slow.  but it is not a big deal.  and i am not sure about searches.

https://beancount.github.io/

is the project home page. You can find the documentation here:

https://beancount.github.io/docs/

I haven't submitted beancount-mode to any Emacs package repository yet,
there is still some work I would like to do before doing it. You can
find it here:

https://github.com/beancount/beancount-mode

with some minimal documentation.

Beancount is distributed as a Python package, thus it should be easily
installable on any system providing Python 3.6 or later.

Cheers,
Dan

Thanks, I am still on Ubuntu 16.04 running 3.5 and call install
beancount, I once tried upgrading python and it caused a lot of other
problems, most likely I have to upgrade Ubuntu, sigh

Thanks. I figured out that I have to read a bit accounting again (I
don't want to  use gnucash again, I prefer an org solution). I think
ledger is a reasonable solution (I cannot install currently beancount)

Yeah, your solution does not work for the example I had in mind

Thanks, that looks nice, but I finally think that the example in 
https://orgmode.org/worg/org-contrib/babel/languages/ob-doc-ledger.html

Is fine. The only think I am missing is the output in an org table form

It is not precisely what I want, but not bad either. If somebody can
come up with a better solution.......

If the ledger formatting options cannot help you (they are potentially
quite powerful), all I can suggest is a post-processing script
(e.g. with sed or awk or equivalent) that massages the output from
ledger into a form you like.

Hope you get something working to your satisfaction.  Ledger is an
excellent text based accounting tool.

Yes, this is what I meant about post-processing (in this case using
elisp).

Maybe append this to the ledger src block begin line:

  :cmdline bal --flat

This will at least remove duplication of data.

Also, ledger can format output as Elisp sexp (with emacs command). That
should be easier to parse.

Best,

Thanks but then the output does not have any indent, and I find
indentation helpful.
