A User's view of Hledger

Learning about hledger

A not so capital idea for saving time

One timesaver I have noted for my workflow is that I can ignore capitalization when referring to account names.

For example, I can have an account named


However, hledger commands don’t require me to match the uppercase or lowercase letters. For example, I can type

hledger areg LIABILITIES:acme
hledger areg liabilities:ACME

   or even

hledger areg lIaBiLiTiEs:AcMe

No matter which capital and lowercase letters I use when writing the account names, I get the same result from the hledger command. So, to save time, I type all lowercase letters.
