Scan your coffee's barcode, and it'll get added to your grocery list
branch: master


Oscar automatically adds things to your grocery list when you run out. You just scan the item's barcode on its way into the trash.

Here's a video about it!

Oscar Demo

Getting Started: Hardware

I run Oscar on a Raspberry Pi under Raspbian. I use this barcode scanner.

That said, there's no reason Oscar shouldn't work with other hardware.

Getting Started: Software

To install Oscar, run the included as root on the target system. It will walk you through the process of setting up any API accounts you'll need, and then it'll install the software.

I haven't really tested that install script, so let's cross our fingers together.
