A Python package to help with an undocumented API of UrbanTZ.

The UrbanTZ company provides a delivery management platform of the same name for other companies. To provide delivery tracking to their customers, those companies can send links to a tracking page on UrbanTZ’s website, which uses a unique delivery ID in the URL to show tracking information.

Those tracking pages perform requests to an undocumented API endpoint with this tracking ID. The endpoint provides much more information than what is actually used in the pages; this package aims to provide a Python interface to help creating better tracking interfaces.

Requirements

This package just needs requests. That’s it.

Scripts

This package provides a simple tracker script, urbantz.tracker, that can be invoked like this:

python -m urbantz.tracker <ID> [-f|--frequency <seconds>]

The script will perform a request every 10 seconds (by default) to the UrbanTZ API, then print the current date, time and distance between the delivery truck and the destination.
