A currency trading ledger in Python

Package Documentation

Tallywallet helps Engineers understand Money and Banking.

You can use it to create economic simulations, or to enable your applications with currency exchange and accounting features.

This package

Tallywallet is a very young project. This package implements the following:


  • Functions to work with Promissory Notes
  • A Ledger class for double-entry accounting
  • An Exchange class to enable currency trading
  • Pre-hoc calculation of exchange rate gains on currency trading accounts
  • Evaluation of the Fundamental Accounting Equation to verify balanced accounts
  • A text format for saving Ledgers to file


  • A how-to on loans, discounting, and amortization
  • A tutorial on how to achieve foreign currency exchange in Python code
  • An example of a macroeconomic monetary circuit simulation


Tallywallet requires Python 3.4. It uses setuptools for installation, but normally it has no external runtime dependencies.

You may have to compile Python 3.4 yourself if it is not yet available from your package repository.

Tallywallet comes with unit tests. To run them all requires the RSON package.
