How do you create your invoices?

With a proper invoice app all your billable hours, products, and taxes are all added up in a snazzy invoice. This is especially useful for smaller business owners or freelancers.

My favorite is a free, open-source project Manta - a desktop application for creating invoices with beautiful and customizable templates.

What tools do you use to create invoices?

I use the built-in feature of the proprietary accounting solution I pay for to generate the invoices. The tool is connected with my bank account, doing so all related accounting entries are generated automatically. A bit of administration time is sparred in that way.

On the other side, to track my work and provide to my clients the details of their bills, I use the open source offline app I developed (web, GitHub).

I did not knew Manta, looks sweat. Thanks for the tips πŸ‘.

Manta looks nice. I used to have Zoho which is nicely integrated with their tooling and you get a good deal on the free tier.
But they recently moved some templating options to their paid tiers (and higher tiers, nonetheless).
Nowadays I'm mostly managing via Google docs.
