barcode.php

Generate barcodes from a single PHP file. MIT license.

  • Output to PNG, GIF, JPEG, or SVG.
  • Generates UPC-A, UPC-E, EAN-13, EAN-8, Code 39, Code 93, Code 128, Codabar, ITF, QR Code, and Data Matrix.

Use from a PHP script:

include 'barcode.php';

$generator = new barcode_generator();

/* Output directly to standard output. */
$generator->output_image($format, $symbology, $data, $options);

/* Create bitmap image. */
$image = $generator->render_image($symbology, $data, $options);
imagepng($image);
imagedestroy($image);

/* Generate SVG markup. */
$svg = $generator->render_svg($symbology, $data, $options);
echo $svg;

Use with GET or POST:

barcode.php?f={format}&s={symbology}&d={data}&{options}

e.g.

barcode.php?f=png&s=upc-e&d=06543217
barcode.php?f=svg&s=qr&d=HELLO%20WORLD&sf=8&ms=r&md=0.8

Options:

f - Format. One of:
