Bunqexport 🌈

After the some discussion in the lexware Finanzmanger forum, it looks like the authors do not feel the need to integrate bunq into their application (https://forum.lexware.de/threads/37851/)

Also in the bunq forums, no one seemed to have a prior solution (https://together.bunq.com/d/24026-lexware-quicken-finanzmanager-import-from-bunq).

So I decided to implement a simple export with python and the bunq rest API.


  • Connect to bunq (https://www.bunq.com) API with a pregenerated API key (see Tinker example: https://github.com/bunq/tinker_python)
  • Export payments from bunq as json and csv into one file per account
  • support special csv format with timestamps in DD.MM.YYYY format in timstamps, as expected from Haufe-Lexware Finanzmanger, when mode is lexware
  • Unit testing using nose
  • Pre-commit checking with pre-commit


Install bunqexport and generate an export:

$ pip install bunqexport
$ bunqexport --conf bunq-production.conf --mode lexware
