Any plans to open-source your tool? Sounds fantastic.

Also I think "double-entry accounting" literally means "N-entry zero sum accounting" as you describe it, and hledger supports it.






When designing this system I wasn't able to find any online resource about accounting describing anything other than double-entry accounting in which every transaction consists of one debit and one credit in equal amounts (usually positive), not adding to zero.

The Wikipedia page has nothing about an N-entry, zero sum method:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Double-entry_bookkeeping_syste...

Not going to open-source; I never open source anything without decent documentation, and this has none.


It’s implied in the first paragraph – “In double-entry bookkeeping, a transaction always affects at least two accounts, always includes at least one debit and one credit, and always has total debits and total credits that are equal.”
