Barcode Buddy for Grocy

Pass barcodes to Barcode Buddy. If already in Grocys system, it will consume/add/open the product in Grocy. 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 (eg. NGINX, Apache), php-sqlite3, php-curl, ideally a barcode scanner

Getting Started

Refer to the wiki, on how to install the program. Installation can be done in a couple of minutes.


Barcodes can either manually be added to the programm or the process can be automated by grabbing the input from the scanner.

Refer to the wiki, on how to use the program.
