A couple of weeks ago I ordered some stuff over the web and frequently I see myself opening the correios website to see if my orders are anywhere near of its destination.

Even though I’ve tried some apps for iOS and still use one of them which sends push notification when any changes has been done to the status of the order, I still have to look for myself every single hour.

So to ease myself I ended up building a tool that checks (and stores to check later without passing the code) the correios website and prints the status on the command line. Really simple tool, tested some libraries, had some fun stuff building it. Go check it out:

Note: even though correios is a state-owned company that operates the national postal service of Brazil, no HTTPS :(
