Text Importer Source?

Hi, I'm wondering if the source code for the text importer extension is available? I'm hoping to use it to learn from and I believe most of what I'm currently trying to do is in that extension already...I'd just need to customize it to a particular need.

    Hi J,

    Here's a link to the developer's page for Moneydance.

    Hi J,

    Here's some other txtimport stuff on BitBucket.

    In addition to what Kevin mentioned (the bitbucket repository being the best resource, IMO) we've added some importing functions to the core API which you can use to take advantage of things like date format detection, field recognition, creating and processing imported transactions as "downloaded", etc. All of that stuff is wrapped up in our txtimport package here: https://infinitekind.com/dev/apidoc/com/infinitekind/moneydance/model/txtimport/package-summary.html

    The source isn't public, but I've tried to build it in such a way that you can use it from your own code to pretty flexibly import data... at least line-delimited data.

    OK. I had found the developer site already. It would have been nice to start with something that does about 70% of what I'd need it to d!

    I'm not really familiar with Java, so without source code to start with I would probably try to do what I need to do in Python. Am I missing something, or is there no published API for python? I see a few sample scripts in the developer page, but no documentation with any meat behind it. Is it somewhere that I missed?
