Smart transactions exporter for NAB
I hated having to login to NAB's clunky Internet banking and fight with its forms to get my data, so I decided I'd better automate this process.
This will export all your transactions for all your NAB accounts into nice QIF files. You can use QIF to load in your desktop or online account software, such as Quicken/MS Money/Mint/Xero etc.
The tool is smart enough not to export pending/clearing trasactions, so in theory you shouldn't get any duplicates.
You need to have the following:
- An account with NAB
- Internet banking login details - username and password
- Python 2.7
- Python libs mechanize and BeautifulSoup installed
Simply start export.py from command line. It will ask you for username and password. If you are running it for the first time be prepared to wait since it's going to fetch all available transactions for all of your accounts, which may take a while.
After it is done, you'll see folders like that
lrwxr-xr-x 1 art staff 63 12 May 18:06 083081-16xxxxxxx lrwxr-xr-x 1 art staff 63 12 May 18:07 083081-17xxxxxxx lrwxr-xr-x 1 art staff 63 12 May 18:08 083081-17xxxxxxx
each of those will contain your QIF files for a given account.
Privacy and Security
The tool does not use your username and password for anything except logging into NAB's website.
It does not store your username and password on the disk, you have to enter them every time you run it.
You can avoid that by creating a file named .credentials in the same folder. The file needs to have two lines, with username on the first line and password on the second line.
