Minted.com Address Book Export

My fiancée and I were just under 100 days until our wedding and I was trying to export the addresses that we had previously saved to minted.com from our Save the Dates, but was dismayed to learn that there was no export feature! So I built a Python script to effectively export the saved address book.

Check out my blog post for more info.

Usage

Based on feedback (thanks, @dlithio), there are currently two different ways to implement this tool and export your address book from minted.com.

  1. Fully-automated scripts to export data as csv and xlsx files using Python and Selenium Webdriver. See below for steps on how to run this script.
  2. A more manual approach to download the data as a json file, and optionally convert the json file to csv or xlsx formats. See below for steps on how to run this script.

Getting Started - Automated Method

  1. Assuming you have Python 3.6+ and a GitHub account, clone the repo:
git clone https://github.com/wkarney/minted-export.git
  1. Navigate into the repository you just cloned:
cd minted-export
  1. Start a virtual environment:
python3 -m venv env
source env/bin/activate
pip install --upgrade pip # Optional but helpful
pip install -r requirements-dev.txt

You can deactivate the virtual environment with deactivate.

  1. Export your Minted address book:

Before getting the addresses, you'll need to have your Minted login credentials handy. It might be helpful to add them as environment variables called minted_email and minted_password, respectively. Or simply run the script and input them when prompted.

To run the script:

python minted_api_request.py

Running the above will scrape all of the events and output the address book fields as csv and xlsx file into the data/ dir of the project.

Getting Started - Manual Approach

If you are having issues setting up the Python environment or running the minted_api_request.py script, there's another more manual method that you can implement as well.

  1. Navigate to Minted in your browser and login. Once logged in, navigate to https://addressbook.minted.com/api/contacts/contacts/?format=json.

  2. Save the page source to this directory on your computer. This should be a .json file containing all of your address book entries.

In order to convert this json file to a csv or xlsx file, you can either use a json-csv converter of your choice (e.g. https://json-csv.com), or run the script included in this repo.

  1. Make sure you have your python environment setup (see Steps 1-3 above).

To run the script:

python convert_json.py

Running the above will convert the json file and save both csv and xlsx files into the data/ dir of the project.

See the example folder for example input/output of the convert_json.py script. 🎅
