This repository is not an official repository of the Kontist GmbH. It connects to a currently undocumented REST API.

Build Status

What does it do?

We provide

  1. a command line tool and
  2. a JavaScript API.

Currently it can fetch transactions, transfers, statements and can create and confirm new transfers.

Please note that this project is in a early stage and support is welcome.

How to use the CLI


  • node and npm installed
  • Add your Kontist username and password either to ENVs called KONTIST_USER and KONTIST_PASSWORD or a .env file (just rename .env-template to .env and replace the credentials).


node cli.js transaction list json

will return

        "amount": 100,
        "booking_date": "2016-12-16T00:00:00.000Z",
        "booking_type": "SEPA_CREDIT_TRANSFER",
        "category": null,
        "date": "2016-12-16T00:00:00.000Z",
        "debitoor_invoice_id": null,
        "debitoor_invoice_number": null,
        "e2e_id": "NOTPROVIDED",
        "foreign_currency": null,
        "from": null,
        "iban": "DEXXXXX",
        "id": 4711,
        "name": "Foo, Bar",
        "original_amount": null,
        "pending_from": null,
        "purpose": "Fancy Friday, Baby",
        "to": 3214,
        "type": null,
        "valuta_date": "2016-12-16T00:00:00.000Z",
        "paymentMethod": "bank_account"
node cli.js transaction list qif

will return

PExample GmbH

So an easy way to create a qif export would be:

node cli.js transaction list qif > my-account.qif

To start a transfer you can use transfer init and transfer confirm:

# init transfer of 1€ to John Doe
node cli.js transfer init "John Doe" DE89370400440532013000 100 "test description"

# wait for sms with token (e.g. 252899)
node cli.js transfer confirm 252899

See more commands with

node cli.js --help

How to use the API

After instantiation of the class you need to login with your Kontist username and password, e.g.

const KontistClient = require("kontist-client");
const client = new KontistClient();
client.login(process.env.KONTIST_USER, process.env.KONTIST_PASSWORD).then(function() {
    // do further calls to kontist here

Please have a look at the kontist-client.js. Currently it provides methods for the following endpoints:

login(email, password)
initiateTransfer(accountId, recipient, iban, amount, note)
confirmTransfer(accountId, transferId, authorizationToken, recipient, iban, amount, note)
getStatement(accountId, year, month)
