3. Build a better Python interface to Ledger-CLI for use by our API.
 

	
 
   Right now, Ledger-CLI has a rather incomplete Python interface, based on
 
   [Boost.Python](http://www.boost.org/doc/libs/1_55_0/libs/python/doc/).
 
   However, the right approach is probably to use
 
   [SWIG](http://www.swig.org/) or some other similar mechanism to build a
 
   proper Python API.  Perhaps Ledger-CLI could stick with Boost.Python, but
 
   what's there clearly needs an overhaul.  The upside of using SWIG will be
 
   that we can get APIs for other languages too. 
 

	
 
   While this project is of primary interest to this project, it will require
 
   careful coordination with Ledger-CLI as an upstream, and we'll help mentor
 
   the student in that.
