About two years ago, I started to work on gcimport, a script that may be used to convert various banking statements to clean and usable CSV files which may be imported in GnuCash. Last week, I discovered ofxstatement, which converts CSV files directly to OFX files. And the best thing about it? It supports plugins! So, goodbye gcimport, hello ofxstatement-austrian!
$ pip install ofxstatement-austrian
In case you are using Arch Linux, you might install it from the AUR package.
First of all, check if the installation worked by issuing
$ ofxstatement list-plugins The following plugins are available: easybank Easybank (CSV) ing-diba ING-DiBa (CSV) livebank Livebank (CSV) raiffeisen Raiffeisenbank (CSV)
If the above command worked, get an export of your banking statements as CSV and convert it to OFX:
$ ofxstatement convert -t <plugin> statement.csv statement.ofx
Finally, import the generated statement.ofx into GnuCash.
