Parent article: SQL-Ledger and LedgerSMB: a study in security reporting
We purchased the SQL-Ledger manual about a year ago. It wasn't bad and I wanted to help a developer of software we use extensively.
That being said: SQL-Ledger's code is absolutely horrible. It's truly putrid. Nevertheless, from an end-user point of view, it works quite well, and it would be a waste of our time to try to fix it up.
We recently switched to Ledger-SMB, and I'm hopeful the code quality will improve. I gather that the Ledger-SMB developers' immediate goal is simply to clean up the worst of SQL-Ledger, but I really hope they give it a thorough rewrite. It should be written using a proper framework like Catalyst; all existing code should be chucked out and only the database schema retained.
This would never happen with only one project, but now that there's a competing project... maybe my dream will come true.
