a screen-scraping API for Mint.com. Build Status


Ensure you have Python 2 or 3 and pip (easy_install pip) and then:

pip install mintapi

If you do not want to manually find and provide your Mint session cookies, as described below, then please also install selenium and chromedriver:

pip install selenium
brew install chromedriver # or sudo apt-get install chromium-chromedriver on Ubuntu/Debian


from Python

From python, instantiate the Mint class (from the mintapi package) and you can make calls to retrieve account/budget information. We recommend using the keyring library for persisting credentials.

  import mintapi
  mint = mintapi.Mint(email, password)

  # Get basic account information

  # Get extended account detail at the expense of speed - requires an
  # additional API call for each account

  # Get budget information

  # Get transactions
  mint.get_transactions() # as pandas dataframe
  mint.get_transactions_csv(include_investment=False) # as raw csv data
  mint.get_transactions_json(include_investment=False, skip_duplicates=False)

  # Get net worth

  # Initiate an account refresh

Run it as a sub-process from your favorite language; pip install mintapi creates a binary in your $PATH. From the command-line, the output is JSON:

    usage: mintapi [-h] [--accounts] [--budgets] [--net-worth]
              [--extended-accounts] [--transactions] [--extended-transactions]
              [--start-date [START_DATE]] [--include-investment]
              [--skip-duplicates] [--show-pending] [--filename FILENAME]
