A library for parsing files in the BAI lockbox format.

Project description

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


To install bai-lockbox:

$ pip install bai-lockbox


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!


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,
