jaraco.financial implements tools for financial management, particularly around Open Financial Exchange and Microsoft Money. These scripts help facilitate the continued use of Money using the free, sunset release, by enabling mechanical downloads of OFX data from institutions that support OFX.

Getting Started

The primary use of this package is the ofx command. After installing, run ofx –help for usage. Before using the project, you will want to supply institution and account information. See below for details on defining these input files.

This project is still a work in progress, but if you think you might find it useful, don’t hesitate to contact the author for help.

Planned Changes

The author plans to add some of the following features:

  • Integrate some of the most common institutions.

Accounts File

The “ofx download-all” command of jaraco.financial will retrieve the OFX transactions in a batch for a group of accounts defined in a YAML file. Currently, that file must be located in ~/Documents/Financial/accounts.yaml. The file should be a list of objects, each with institution and account attributes. It should also have a type property of “checking”, “savings”, “creditline”, or other appropriate OFX type. The institution must match exactly an institution as defined below. Here is an example accounts.yaml:

- institution: Bank of America
  account: "12345679"
  type: savings

- institution: Wells Fargo
  account: "872634126"
  type: moneymrkt

- institution: Chase (credit card)
  account: "4000111122223333"
  username: myusername

The username attribute must be included if the username of the local user (running the ofx command) differs from the account name on the account.

Institutions Definition

Institution definitions can be provided in a YAML format in the file ~/Documents/Financial/institutions.yaml. The following is an example definition for a credit card:

Chase (credit card):
  caps:
   - SIGNON
   - CCSTMT
  fid: "10898"
  fiorg: B1
  url: https://ofx.chase.com

To check that your institutions are being loaded correctly, use the ofx list-institutions command.
