Importing from European banksOctober 17, 2019 at 8:40am
👋 Acutal community! It's great to see the new api released and already being documented on the website. Since my bank only supports exporting transactions as csv files, I had to enter them by hand until now. Using the api I could write a small script to automate the import. Would be happy to add support for other banks as well, if someone would like to use it.

I found the problem I was facing. It was basically a user error, but Actual didn't give any feedback. My bank provides .cvs files. I usually manually convert these files into .OFX using this tool (https://csvconverter.biz/convert/step/5). No problems there.
However, today I didn't realise that I imported transactions that were already imported. The result was that I choose the file to be imported, and nothing happened. Tried again, and nothing. This got me to think that the import functionality was broken. A dialog or feedback saying "0 transactions imported" would had been enough to understand what went wrong.
