A pure python reader for QR codes. Made to be compatible to Python 2.7 to 3.6+.
We use the easy-to-install Pillow package to load the pictures, so lots of picture formats are supported.
The package is a work in progress. It can currently decode right-side-up QR codes images generated on a computer (not pictures of printed codes).
Features left to be implemented:
- QR data error correction (currently being researched and implemented)
- image recognition to recognize QR codes in camera pictures
qreader.read(source) # source can be a file-like object, a PIL image, or a path to a local file
import qreader from urllib.request import urlopen url = 'https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/8/8f/Qr-2.png' data = qreader.read(urlopen(url)) print(data) # prints "Version 2"
Any ideas or issues will be gladly received in the issues panel or by PMing me (ewino)
