Build status Coverage Status crates.io MIT OR Apache 2.0

QR code and Micro QR code encoder in Rust. Documentation.

Cargo.toml

[dependencies]
qrcode = "0.11"

The default settings will depend on the image crate. If you don't need image generation capability, disable the default-features:

[dependencies]
qrcode = { version = "0.11", default-features = false }

Example

Image generation

use qrcode::QrCode;
use image::Luma;

fn main() {
    // Encode some data into bits.
    let code = QrCode::new(b"01234567").unwrap();

    // Render the bits into an image.
    let image = code.render::<Luma<u8>>().build();

    // Save the image.
    image.save("/tmp/qrcode.png").unwrap();
}

Generates this image:

Output

String generation

use qrcode::QrCode;

fn main() {
    let code = QrCode::new(b"Hello").unwrap();
    let string = code.render::<char>()
        .quiet_zone(false)
        .module_dimensions(2, 1)
        .build();
    println!("{}", string);
}

Generates this output:

SVG generation

use qrcode::{QrCode, Version, EcLevel};
use qrcode::render::svg;

fn main() {
    let code = QrCode::with_version(b"01234567", Version::Micro(2), EcLevel::L).unwrap();
    let image = code.render()
        .min_dimensions(200, 200)
        .dark_color(svg::Color("#800000"))
        .light_color(svg::Color("#ffff80"))
        .build();
    println!("{}", image);
}

Generates this SVG:

Output

Unicode string generation

use qrcode::QrCode;
use qrcode::render::unicode;

fn main() {
    let code = QrCode::new("mow mow").unwrap();
    let image = code.render::<unicode::Dense1x2>()
        .dark_color(unicode::Dense1x2::Light)
        .light_color(unicode::Dense1x2::Dark)
        .build();
    println!("{}", image);
}
