Welcome to the track2rss Project

This project seeks to provide a set of scripts for converting tracking information for packages from various carriers to the RSS format. It was inspired by a similar project written by Jason Young. Currently support is provided for UPS, Fedex Air and Ground, and the US Postal Service (USPS) via a set of XSLT templates and a Perl wrapper. Future plans are to extend support to more carriers such as DHL, etc.; possibly other formats such as Atom, and other languages like PHP, Java, etc. For more information about this project or to download it please visit our SourceForge Project page.
