Tools for working with the OFX (Open Financial Exchange) file format
ofxparse is a parser for Open Financial Exchange (.ofx) format files. OFX files are available from almost any online banking site, so they work well if you want to pull together your finances from multiple sources. Online trading accounts also provide account statements in OFX files.
There are three different types of OFX files. This library has been tested with BankAccount files. The other two types, CreditAccount and InvestmentAccount have not been tested. If you have a sample of these other types that could be used to help this project, please see the Help! section below.
Here’s a sample program:
from ofxparse import OfxParser ofx = OfxParser.parse(file('file.ofx')) ofx.accounts # An account with information ofx.account.number # The account number ofx.account.routing_number # The transit id (sometimes called branch number) ofx.account.statement # Account information for a period of time ofx.account.statement.start_date # The start date of the transactions ofx.account.statement.end_date # The end date of the transactions ofx.account.statement.transactions # A list of account activities ofx.account.statement.balance # The money in the account as of the statement date ofx.account.statement.available_balance # The money available from the account as of the statement date
I’m looking for different types of accounts to make this library more robust. I’m looking for sample credit account or investment account files. Please (anonymize first) and mail to jseutter dot ofxparse at gmail dot com.
Prerequisites:: (Ubuntu) sudo apt-get install python-beautifulsoup python-nose (pip) pip install BeautifulSoup nose
Tests:: Simply running the “nose” command should run the tests. If you don’t have nose installed, the following might also work:
python -m unittest tests.test_parse
ofxparse is released under an MIT license. See the LICENSE file for the actual license text. The basic idea is that if you can use Python to do what you are doing, you can also use this library.
