Update chromedriver fetch logic to use the latest version from the stable channel (instead of a hard coded version). Related, allow by cli/api the ability to use chromedriver on PATH

a screen-scraping API for Build Status


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

pip install mintapi

mintapi scrapes by navigating a Chrome browser (or Chromium) just as a human would. Once logged in, the API allows programatic access to various Mint REST APIs. Selenium/WebDriver is used to accomplish this, and specifically, ChromeDriver under the hood. mintapi will download the latest stable release of chromedriver, unless --use_chromedriver_on_path is given. NOTE: You must have Chrome or Chromium installed, on the stable track, and be up-to-date! If you run into a SessionNotCreatedException about "ChromeDriver only supports Chrome version XX", you need to update Chrome.


from the command line

From the command line, the most automated invocation will be:

python mintapi/ --keyring --headless

This will store your credentials securely in your system keyring, and use a headless (invisible) browser to log in and grab the account data. If this triggers an MFA prompt, you'll be prompted on the command line for your code, which by default goes to SMS unless you specify --mfa-method=email. This will also persist a browser session in $HOME/.mintapi/session to avoid an MFA in the future, unless you specify --session-path=None.

If mfa-method is email and your email host provides IMAP access, you can specify your IMAP login details. This will automate the retrieval of the MFA code from your email and entering it into Mint.

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 used to log in to Mint
    'password',  # Your password used to log in to mint
    # Optional parameters
    mfa_method='sms',  # Can be 'sms' (default), 'email', or 'soft-token'.
                       # if mintapi detects an MFA request, it will trigger the requested method
                       # and prompt on the command line.
    headless=False,  # Whether the chromedriver should work without opening a
                     # visible window (useful for server-side deployments)
    mfa_input_callback=None,  # A callback accepting a single argument (the prompt)
                              # which returns the user-inputted 2FA code. By default
                              # the default Python `input` function is used.
    session_path=None, # Directory that the Chrome persistent session will be written/read from.
                       # To avoid the 2FA code being asked for multiple times, you can either set
                       # this parameter or log in by hand in Chrome under the same user this runs
                       # as.
    imap_account=None, # account name used to log in to your IMAP server
    imap_password=None, # account password used to log in to your IMAP server
    imap_server=None,  # IMAP server host name
    imap_folder='INBOX',  # IMAP folder that receives MFA email
    wait_for_sync=False,  # do not wait for accounts to sync
    wait_for_sync_timeout=300,  # number of seconds to wait for sync
	use_chromedriver_on_path=False,  # True will use a system provided chromedriver binary that
	                                 # is on the PATH (instead of downloading the latest version)

  # 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 transactions for a specific account
  accounts = mint.get_accounts(True)
  for account in accounts:

  # Get net worth

  # Get credit score

  # Get bills

  # Get investments (holdings and transactions)

  # Close session and exit cleanly from selenium/chromedriver

  # 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:

If you need to avoid using pip or, you can also clone/download this repository and run: python mintapi/

You can’t perform that action at this time.
