A library for parsing files in the BAI lockbox format.

Project description

# bai-lockbox

A simple parser for files in the BAI lockbox format in order to extract checks
from them.

## Installation

To install `bai-lockbox`:

$ pip install bai-lockbox

## Warning

Please be aware that this code was written to the spec that our bank uses, and
has been tested with data that has come from them. This means that there may be
subtle (and maybe some not-so-subtle) differences between the the data we expect
and the data you get. If our parser doesn't read your files, open an issue or
submit a PR. We'd really appreciate it!

## Usage


from lockbox.parser import LockboxFile
with open('/path/to/file', 'r') as inf:
lockbox_file = LockboxFile.from_file(inf)

for check in lockbox_file.checks:
print('Received ${} from {} on {}'.format(
check.amount, check.sender,
