Swiss DTA payment file format

Ruby library for the Swiss DTA payment file format. See www.six-interbank-clearing.com/de/tkicch_index/tkicch_home/tkicch_standardization/tkicch_standardization_dta.htm?lang=1 for more Information.

The DTA documentation in PDF format can be found here: www.six-interbank-clearing.com/dl_tkicch_dta.pdf

Status

Early alpha. All payments are supported. It lacks payment validations and extended documentation

Installation

gem install payment_dta --source http://gemcutter.org

Usage

require 'rubygems'
require 'payment_dta'

DTAFile.create("/tmp/dta_payment.dta") do |file|
  file << ESRPayment.new(esr_attributes)
  file << IBANPayment.new(iban_attributes)
end

TODOS

  • Add validations

  • Merge namespaces DTA::Payment and DTA::Payments

  • Remove duplications in payment classes

  • Document the code according to the English DTA spec

  • Add API to generate a string instead of a file so that it can be used in a web application

  • Move tests for generator from test unit to rspec

Note on Patches/Pull Requests

  • Fork the project.

  • Make your feature addition or bug fix.

  • Add tests for it. This is important so I don't break it in a future version unintentionally.

  • Commit, do not mess with rakefile, version, or history. (if you want to have your own version, that is fine but

    bump version in a commit by itself I can ignore when I pull)
    
  • Send me a pull request. Bonus points for topic branches.
