bank integration? - any plugins available to assist in this?


Are there any plugins/code examples for integrating from Ruby on Rails to one’s bank? In particular for a daily automated check of latest transactions (i.e. read only).



ActiveMerchant ( is probably the best option
for Rails integration with "commerce" stuff. I don't know how much
what you are asking for is supported, though. I'd check with Braintree
and TrustCommerce as I know both of them support some "bank" type
transactions, but they may only be ACH.

Ultimately, I don't know if there is a standard API for reading bank
account transactions, particularly since some banks implement their
own systems.

You might check into Yodlee or other aggregator services... maybe they
offer an API.
