@aparez I don't believe your latest change had the desired effect - it is still pulling the v3 version of beancount (labeled as 'unstable' still) instead of the v2 branch. I believe line 9 in the PKGBUILD would need to be updated to be:

I have just pushed a small update, let me know if any issues remain for you. Unfortunately, I do not use Beancount anymore so I have not been maintaining the PKGBUILD updated. If somebody else would like to take maintain the package, I can pass it over or add them as co-maintainers—let me know!

aclindsa commented on 2021-02-25 12:35 (UTC)

Beancount now has two primary versions, v2 and v3. Is your intention with this package to always follow the latest, even if it breaks compatibility with v2, or to follow the v2 branch?

If your intention is to stick with v2 for now, you can change the git import URL to: git+

python-pytest seems to be a required dependency

Also I get

Traceback (most recent call last):

when starting Fava with this version of beancount installed, the non-git version works fine

Looks like the bean-price utility was recently moved to another repository:

I created an AUR package for it:

@aperez: if you want, I can set you as the maintainer of the new package.

aperez commented on 2020-07-22 14:15 (UTC)

This package is replaced by beancount-git

xuhcc commented on 2020-05-23 12:05 (UTC)

Beancount moved to GitHub:

@cejota: I have already pushed the changes. That was a really good suggestion, thanks!

cejota commented on 2019-01-06 19:19 (UTC)

You could change the pkgver() to make it compatible with other programs requiring minimum versions of beancount:

pkgver() {
  cd "${pkgname}"
  hg log -r . --template '{latesttag}-{latesttagdistance}-{node|short}' | sed 's/^\([^-]*\)-\([^-]*\)-/\1.r\2./'

And then you could provide the correct version number in provides:

provides=('ledgerhub-hg' "beancount=${pkgver%%.r*}")

@wzyboy: I have added the conflicts/provides as suggested. Thanks for the tip!

wzyboy commented on 2018-03-05 08:28 (UTC)


provides=('beancount') conflicts=('beancount')

This promotes user to replace beancount with beancount-hg and does not break the dependency of fava.

@aperez Unfortunately, I'm still getting the same error. It looks like something else is missing. I'll post it here in case it helps.

@irmas: Could you try to update using the updated PKGBUILD which I have just pushed a few moments ago? The python-bottle (needed for “beancount web”) used to be optional, and now it's always installed. @ngoonee: Thanks for the tip, I have updated the dependencies. Also, I made the PKGBUILD mimic a bit what the one for the “beancount” package does.

irmas commented on 2017-01-06 18:09 (UTC)

beancount (at least bean-web) doesn't work on my computer since I updated to python 3.6 . Any tips ?

ngoonee commented on 2016-12-19 09:50 (UTC)

Please update dependencies with (at least) python-google-api-python-client, python-beautifulsoup4, and python-magic-ahupp. They're listed in, along with python-chardet.

aperez commented on 2015-07-09 19:42 (UTC)

@simon-v: Dependencies added, thanks for the heads up.

simon-v commented on 2015-06-15 12:25 (UTC)

python-ply is a dependency of the bean-query tool. Also, the required python-dateutil is still not listed as a dependency.

aperez commented on 2014-10-02 07:08 (UTC)

@dustball: Thanks for the tips, I have updated the PKGBUILD accordingly ☺

dustball commented on 2014-10-01 19:38 (UTC)

mercurial is missing as a makedepend, and also python-dateutil is required.
