Pass barcodes to Barcode Buddy. If already in the Grocys system, it will consume/add/open the product there.
If an unknown barcode is passed, the product name will be looked up and a corresponding product can be chosen in the Web UI.
Tags can be saved — if a new product contains the tag in the name, the product will be already preselected in the drop-down list.


Webserver that supports PHP (e.g. NGINX, Apache) or Docker, a Grocy API key and ideally a barcode scanner or Android device.
