I just wanted to glance over my mirror and track incoming parcels, as me and my family start to be rather heavy users of Internet buying. Well heavy… but still a few parcels per week. I thought it would be nice to show the overall status on the mirror.
The MMM-AfterShip module by @Mykle1 wich used the aftership interface inspired me to reuse that interface for parcel trackings but I needed a more compact display. So I changed the output design to a visual design with less details and more visual color and icon cues for shipment status.
Alas the Dutch PostNL nor DHL provide free API’s to receiving users, but both couriers (and +400 more) are available via Aftership. ’
The Mirror module shows the parcels that you enter via your aftership account. Aftership offers a free account with free API use when you stay under 100 parcels per month via their website aftership.com.
There are three presentations modes ranging from moderately compact (max three lines per parcel) to compact (max two lines per parcel) to very compact (one-liner per parcel), which can be set in config. Just as languages and colors.
