Render QR codes easily from your Rails 3 application

This gem supports rendering either SVG or PNG format.

SVG, because of it's vector nature, will scale easily when intended for print. Offering QR endpoints enables others to integrate with your service in possibly interesting ways.

Installation

Add the following to your Gemfile.

gem 'rqrcode-rails3'

If you want to use the PNG format, you will have to have ImageMagick installed on your system. You will also want to add the mini_magick gem to your application's Gemfile.

gem 'mini_magick'

How to use

In your controller actions, you could return a QR code that links to the current page like this:

respond_to do |format|
  format.html
  format.svg { render :qrcode => request.url }
  format.png { render :qrcode => request.url }
end

If you wish to render SVG inline (i.e. in your views), you can use the SVG renderer directly:

qr_code = RQRCode::QRCode.new("Hello, world!")
RQRCode::Renderers::SVG::render(qr_code)

About

This project was inspired by the first chapter in José Valim's book Crafting Rails Applications

QR codes are encoded by rqrcode
