QRCode Terminal

Build Status

A golang library for generating QR codes in the terminal.

Originally this was a port of the NodeJS version. Recently it's been updated to allow for smaller code generation using ASCII 'half blocks'

Example

Full size ASCII block QR Code:
alt text

Smaller 'half blocks' in the terminal:
alt text

Install

For command line usage see below, or grab the binary from the releases page

As a library in an application

go get github.com/mdp/qrterminal/v3

Usage

import (
    "github.com/mdp/qrterminal/v3"
    "os"
    )

func main() {
  // Generate a 'dense' qrcode with the 'Low' level error correction and write it to Stdout
  qrterminal.Generate("https://github.com/mdp/qrterminal", qrterminal.L, os.Stdout)
}

More complicated

Large Inverted barcode with medium redundancy and a 1 pixel border

import (
    "github.com/mdp/qrterminal/v3"
    "os"
    )

func main() {
  config := qrterminal.Config{
      Level: qrterminal.M,
      Writer: os.Stdout,
      BlackChar: qrterminal.WHITE,
      WhiteChar: qrterminal.BLACK,
      QuietZone: 1,
  }
  qrterminal.GenerateWithConfig("https://github.com/mdp/qrterminal", config)
}

HalfBlock barcode with medium redundancy

import (
    "github.com/mdp/qrterminal/v3"
    "os"
    )

func main() {
  config := qrterminal.Config{
      HalfBlocks: true,
      Level: qrterminal.M,
      Writer: os.Stdout,
  }
  qrterminal.GenerateWithConfig("https://github.com/mdp/qrterminal", config)
}

Command Line

Installation

OSX: brew install mdp/tap/qrterminal

Others: Download from the releases page

Source: go get -u github.com/mdp/qrterminal/v3/cmd/qrterminal

Usage

Print out a basic QR code in your terminal:
qrterminal https://github.com/mdp/qrterminal

Using 'medium' error correction:
qrterminal https://github.com/mdp/qrterminal -l M

Or just use Docker: docker run --rm mpercival/qrterminal:latest 'https://github.com/mdp/qrterminal'
