Turn digitec.ch collection notices into iOS Wallet passes.
This is the code that's powering the
firstname.lastname@example.org email address.
If you have a digitec collection notice, forward it to
email@example.com and you will get the exact same message back, but the PDF has now been replaced with an iOS pass that you can add to your wallet.
The passes are geo-coded to the respective digitec store, so the passes will automatically pop up as you get close to the store.
- currently has a hard-coded list of digitec stores. Should probably web-scrape them
- as digitec has no API and as I don't want your user-data, we can't remove the passes when people fetch their orders
- authenticated SMTP to the smarthost would be cool
- web-scraping the store opening hours would be cool too
- this also needs to be localized according to the locale of the collection notice
- add Galaxus support
running it yourself
In order to run this yourself, you need to have a smart-host available for sending mail. It currently must be configured to not require authentication (as mine doesn't), but I would accept patches to change this. It's quite trivial to do.
You also need a mail server to accept the mails. You can either have your mail server invoke the application and pass the mail in via STDIN, or you run the script with
-l [host:]<port> which will cause it to run as a local LMTP daemon. Then you just pass your mail to it.
In my case, I'm using exim with the following router:
digipass: driver = accept domains = pilif.me local_parts = digipass transport = digipass_t
and the following transport
digipass_t: driver = smtp protocol = lmtp hosts = $INSERT_HOST_HERE hosts_override = true port = 5959
Your mileage may vary.
You will also need to be a member of the Apple developer program in order to be able to sign the passes. The private key and certificate included in this project is password-protected and the password naturally isn't part of the source distribution.
You'll also have to update the code with your certificate's data.
I'm not affiliated with Digitec. I'm just a good customer and I'm fed up with trying to dig their collection notices out of my mailbox. If they implement this on their own, that would be even better - then I can shut this down again.
