QRCode πŸ”³

Build Status Carthage compatible Swift 3.0

A QRCode generator written in Swift.

QRCode Example

Overview

Create a new QRCode representing a URL, a string or arbitrary data. The following examples all result in the same QRCode image.

// URL
let url = URL(string: "http://schuch.me")!
let qrCode = QRCode(url)
qrCode?.image

// String
let qrCode = QRCode("http://schuch.me")
qrCode?.image

// NSData
let data = "http://schuch.me".data(using: .isoLatin1)!
let qrCode = QRCode(data)
qrCode.image

Customize the output image

Make sure to declare your QRCode instance as a variable in order make use of the following features.

Adjust Output Size

Change the output size of the QRCode output image via the size property.

qrCode.size = CGSize(width: 300, height: 300)
qrCode.image // UIImage (300x300)

Color

Modify the colors of the QRCode output image via color and backgroundColor properties.

qrCode.color = CIColor(rgba: "16a085")
qrCode.backgroundColor = CIColor(rgba: "000")
qrCode.image // UIImage (green QRCode color and black background)

Note: The above examples make use of the CIColor extension that ships with this project to create colors based on HEX strings.

UIImageView extension

For convenience, a UIImageView extension is provided to directly initialize an image view with an instance of QRCode.

let imageView = UIImageView(qrCode: qrCode)

Emoji alias

In case you love emoji as much as I do, make sure to create your QRCode instance using the πŸ”³ typealias.

let qrCode = πŸ”³("http://example.com")
