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, called BankAccount, CreditAccount and InvestmentAccount files. This library has been tested with real-world samples of all three types. If you find a file that does not work with this library, please consider contributing the file so ofxparse can be improved. See the Help! section below for directions on how to do this.
Here's a sample program
from ofxparse import OfxParser with codecs.open('file.ofx') as fileobj: ofx = OfxParser.parse(fileobj) 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
.qfx files are very useful. If you want to help us out,
please edit all identifying information from the file and then email it to

- # Ubuntu sudo apt-get install python-beautifulsoup python-nose python-coverage-test-runner # Python 3 (pip) pip install BeautifulSoup4 six lxml nose coverage # Python 2 (pip) pip install BeautifulSoup six nose coverage
The six package is required for python 2.X compatibility
Simply running the
nosetests command should run the tests.
If you don't have nose installed, the following might also work:
python -m unittest tests.test_parse
Test Coverage Report:
coverage run -m unittest tests.test_parse # text report coverage report # html report coverage html firefox htmlcov/index.html
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.
