Summary

A browser extension to generate Beancount entries from Amazon orders.

Usage:

Go to the order history page, usually at https://www.amazon.com/gp/css/order-history. You should see a link called “Bean!” next to the “Search Orders” button. Click it and wait. It should generate a wall of text and put it on the top of the web page.

When you click the “Bean!” link, it finds all the orders in the current page, and retrieve the invoice of each. From the invoice it scraps the necessary info and constructs the Beancount entries.

I used to use my Rust program to do this, which required me to download b2b order reports from Amazon. However the Amazon quite frequently fails to export b2b reports. So I write this browser extension that does not depend on that.
