Please make sure to export GELD_DB=~/.config/geld.db (or whatever location you would like to have the geld database at).

List transactions

geld list --help

List all transactions:

geld list

List all transactions since a specific date:

geld list --since "Oct 2, 2020"

List all transactions and add the total amount:

geld list --total

Import transactions

During import, geld will create SHA1 sums for every transaction, which allows it to identify every imported transaction. This way geld won’t import the exact same transaction twice. This means that if you import periodical exports that might contain duplicate transactions you don’t need to worry about them messing up your database.
