Paketti is a Sailfish application for tracking Finnish Posti, Matkahuolto, Postnord (MyPack/Posten.se), Hermes.de, La Poste and DHL shipments. You can track multiple shipments at the same time.

The application also has the option to show the tracking code as a barcode readable by the barcode scanner in the retrieval point.

When you search a shipment, the tracking code is saved to the search history and the shipment's information is updated every time the application is started.

Language choices: Finnish, Swedish, English, German, French, Norwegian, Polish.

Paketti on Sailfish-käyttöjärjestelmälle tehty ohjelma Postin, Matkahuollon, Postnordin (MyPack/Posten.se), Hermes.de:n, La Posten sekä DHL:n lähetysten seuraamiseen. Voit seurata useampaa lähetystä samanaikaisesti.

Ohjelmassa on myös mahdollisuus näyttää seuratun lähetyksen viivakoodi, joka on luettavissa noutopisteen viivakoodinlukijalla.

Kun suoritat haun seurantakoodilla, hakemasi seurantakoodi tallennetaan hakuhistoriaan, jossa olevien lähetysten tiedot päivitetään automaattisesti kun ohjelma avataan tai valitset alasvetovalikosta Päivitä.

Kielivaihtoehdot: Suomi, ruotsi, englanti, saksa, ranska, norja, puola.

Source code and issue queue are available in Github.

Hi the translation for German Language is finished.Would you bring a new version?

Thanks for the aarch64-build!

Could you make the barcode scale up bigger? I felt it was smallish already on Xperia X's screen, now on Xperia 10-II the barcode is very small. (Yes, it does work and can be read, but looks silly on the huge display).

Can you add 64 bit support for Sony Xperia 10 II? Thanks!

Sure thing, nice catch! I hadn't noticed that it requires a separate build.

Is it just me or does Finnish Posti have issues with VPN? In Paketti I get json parsing errors when VPN is enabled, works fine when disabled. Furthermore, I have trouble accessing the Posti tracking website with VPN enabled. EDIT: I'm using NordVPN with OpenVPN

ZeiP's picture

It's unlikely that they would have issues with VPN as a technology, as it can't really be detected. But it may be that they've blocked NordVPN or even a larger bunch of foreign IPs altogether. I don't have any contacts to the Finnish Posti to get details about this, sorry! The API we're using is somewhat unofficial and there's therefore no support for it.

I just noticed that Posti also has an official API which requires authentication, I might look into maybe integrating to that instead in the future.

Hi @ZeiP, is there a reason, why Paketti has not been updated for a while at the Jolla Store?
Paketti 0.6.5 from June 2020 is still offered there as the recent version, although newer versions were released here at OpenRepos since then.

ZeiP's picture

The original application author is still in charge of submitting the application to Jolla Store, so any new versions are first here in Openrepos and in GitHub, where I can submit them myself. I've sent him the new versions, but haven't heard back. I'll ask him if he could release the new versions there also, sorry for the delay.

Thank you @ZeiP for taking care about this.

If the original author (@junnuvi) still is unresponsive, you may contact Jolla.
It should be in their own interest to have as many recent apps in their Store as possible.

ZeiP's picture

The Jolla store version seems to have been updated now. We're looking into transferring the ownership of the application.

Oh yes, I see "Updated 9:35, 08/01/2021" for Paketti in the Jolla Store.

Still v0.65 is installed and the Jolla Store does not offer an update.  Maybe because my production phone is still on SailfishOS 3.2.1.  Do your recent Paketti releases have dependencies on current versions of SailfishOS RPMs / components?

If so, never mind, if that is not just the result of using a recent Sailfish SDK for building Paketti.  While major code changes or sacrificing functionality in order to support older SailfishOS releases are definitely not worth the effort, using an older SDK (if technically feasible) likely is, IMO.

Anyway, kudos to you for your excellent maintenance of this app.

ZeiP's picture

That'a actually a good question. I'm not sure how the dependencies work; there's no reason for any specific requirements.

I think this is because I'm using the SailfishOS 3.3.0.16 build targets. I'll take a look later at what's the recommended approach to maintain maximum compatibility without security implications or problems with more recent releases.

Hi it is working now great :)

monkeyisland's picture

Hi i send you in the afternoon

monkeyisland's picture

Great app i tested with hermes.de today thank you.But i got a problem with DHL Tracking

the time zone is not correct. and for dhl, the translation in German is missing.

And it seems that tha the app cant connect properly to the dhl.de site:

it take a long time to receice the information

Hermes tracking works perfectly. Great job so far :)

 

ZeiP's picture

Can you please send me your tracking code and other details to paketti-app@ardcoras.fi, so I can take a closer look?

explit's picture

Great, thanks, really cool!. I ask me how complicated it would be to add global tracking services like 17track.net ? It would cover about 400 tracking services from different countries! But i don't know how free their API is.

ZeiP's picture

Yeah, using such an API would of course be better. I haven't found a free API so far; for example 17track.net forbids usage through another software. There are many others but they all seem to cost more or less. If you find a free one, let me know.

explit's picture

Would be very cool to add DHL

ZeiP's picture

Thanks for the feedback! I just released 0.7.1 which includes also DHL tracking.
