Methods

  • qr.image(text, [ec_level | options]) — Readable stream with image data;
  • qr.imageSync(text, [ec_level | options]) — string with image data. (Buffer for png);
  • qr.svgObject(text, [ec_level | options]) — object with SVG path and size;
  • qr.matrix(text, [ec_level]) — 2D array of booleans. Y is indexed first (e.g. [y][x] NOT [x][y]), [0][0] is the top left, and true means black.

Options

  • text — text to encode;
  • ec_level — error correction level. One of L, M, Q, H. Default M.
  • options — image options object:
    • ec_level — default M.
    • type — image type. Possible values png (default), svg, pdf and eps.
    • size (png and svg only) — size of one module in pixels. Default 5 for png and undefined for svg.
    • margin — white space around QR image in modules. Default 4 for png and 1 for others.
    • customize (only png) — function to customize qr bitmap before encoding to PNG.
    • parse_url (experimental, default false) — try to optimize QR-code for URLs.

Changes

  • Use zlib.deflateSync instead of pako.
  • Fix deprecation warning for NodeJS 7.

TODO

  • Tests;
  • mixing modes;
  • Kanji (???).
