Hi Phil,

Welcome back!

I used LSMB briefly many years ago before my IT work evolved into
having one full-time client - and then I retired. Now I have a
friend who might be interested in LSMB.

I know data can be exported as CSV but have people written their own
custom export facilities for producing custom formats for their
accountants to easily import / digest? - my preference would be to
write a Ruby script to do something like this.

Given the lack of response, I think the answer is "no"... However, I'm
working on a "command-line client" application which is supposed to be
able to do something like this. The outlines are only shaping now as
I'm working on administrative commands first. However, I'm definitely
open to adding more import/export commands to the script, if there are
generally useful cases to be made.

We are in Australia BTW so any comments re LSMB and Australian tax
forms etc and multi-currency stuff is also appreciated!

I've included David Godfrey, who is also in Australia. He might know
people with the same or similar issues.

Hope that helps!

After LOTs of distractions / dramas, I have finally gotten back to this topic - I have now successfully created Podman containers (suits me better than Docker) for PostgreSQL and LedgerSMB, created my first company and logged in.

Now if that company actually starts trading sometime - I could make use of this setup! - and if my friend is interested in using this too, I will help her set it up.

Thanks for the Docker image and clear instructions!
