ISO8583 python library

Project description

#py8583 ###Python library implementing the ISO-8583 banking protocol

This is an implementation of the de-facto protocol for banking applications, iso8583.

#### Status: Things working:

  • iso-8583/1987 parsing and building
  • Support of BCD/Binary/ASCII variations in field lengths and field data (where applicable)
  • Python 2.7 and 3.x support

Things that will work (aka TODO List):

  • Proper documentation
  • Fully automated unit testing
  • 1993 and 2003 specifications of the protocol

Things that might work (aka Wishlist):

  • Predefined (and ready to use) popular implementations
  • EBCDIC support

#### How to use: The module’s external module dependencies are:

  • enum34 (for python < 3.4)

This paragraph will eventually have some basic/quick examples too. Until then, please have a look at the IsoHost.py file which contains a simple server which waits for ISO messages, parses them and replies in a hardcoded manner.

#### License: All the work is licensed under LGPL 2.1. Since LGPL is not very python focused, as the copyright holder, my intentions basically boil down to:

  • You are allowed to use the library as an API in closed source code without it being considered derivative work
  • You are NOT allowed to modify the library itself without publishing the changes in a compatible license
