Roadmap / Wishlist¶
Ideas about where the hledger project should be going next, as of 2019q4. Discussion welcome.
Dated targets we are aiming for:
hledger 1.16 - 2019-12-01
ghc 8.8 support
updated home page, faq, manuals
basic bar charts
reduce install hassles with terminfo C lib
Current priorities for the project, grouped under four overarching themes:
Improving the docs.
Improving approachability, just-works quality, practicality, real-world usefulness.
Adding charts and more visual appeal.
A few high-level maintainer wishes, by topic. Discussing/moving any of these forward is a big help.
build the contributor/dev guide from CONTRIBUTING.md plus the READMEs; clean up
move general PTA docs to plaintextaccounting.org
simplify manuals’ TOC/structure on the website
migrate to tasty, unblock ghc 8.8 support
survey/document current testing setup (process, coverage, redundancy..); identify weaknesses; design a policy for tests; make a plan for achieving that
start adding property tests/other new kinds of testing if appropriate
