This is the source for plaintextaccounting.org, an information portal/overview site for Plain Text Accounting and related tools: Ledger, hledger, beancount, etc.
Since 2022-01, there is also a companion wiki: https://wiki.plaintextaccounting.org. (The wiki is hosted on Github and its urls are not finalised, but
https://wiki.plaintextaccounting.org[/PAGE] will always redirect to the right place.)
The site is mainly one big markdown page, plus a few more. These are rendered by Pandoc (chosen originally for its power and dependability, to minimise layout troubleshooting time).
The site's repo is https://github.com/plaintextaccounting/plaintextaccounting. Since 2022-01, the site is rendered by Cloudflare Pages. Changes merged in the master branch appear at plaintextaccounting.org within 2-3 minutes.
The site is managed via
#plaintextaccounting:matrix.orgroom on Matrix, or the bridged
#plaintextaccountingchannel on Libera.chat. Site-related questions or discussion are welcome here.
