Abstract

In using the Ledger-cli software I had the need for nicely formatted reports for my accountant. There were some solutions but no really easy straight forward. I decided to try to use the xml output and create a pdf from that via XSL-FO style sheets.


To use this style sheet you need an xsl processor like xsltproc and a fo processor like fop. You also need a ledger that includes the commits 44823d241f01c9cb2b891283f9e110f15aeebf9a and a875940a93848d4b18b5bed45049edc901ad07a2 from 2013-03-08. Those were fixes to the xml export. You also need the ledger.xsl style sheet. I currently do not host it in a git or so. That might come if there is interest. Best would be if it got adopted upstream.
