Barcode Buddy for Grocy
- Bare Metal
- Kubernetes (Community support only)
- Home Assistant (Community support only)
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) or Docker, a Grocy API key and ideally a barcode scanner or Android phone
Refer to the documentation, 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 documentation, on how to use the program.

As with all Free software, the power is less in the finances and more in the collective efforts. I really appreciate every pull request and bug report offered up by BarcodeBuddy's users, so please keep that stuff coming. If however, you're not one for coding/design/documentation, and would like to contribute financially, you can do so with the link below. Every help is very much appreciated!
