This is a Go package for the ACR122U USB NFC Reader

Requirements

Under macOS pcsc-lite can be installed using homebrew: brew install pcsc-lite

Installation

go get -u github.com/peterhellberg/acr122u

Usage

Minimal example

package main

import (
	"fmt"

	"github.com/peterhellberg/acr122u"
)

func main() {
	ctx, err := acr122u.EstablishContext()
	if err != nil {
		panic(err)
	}

	ctx.ServeFunc(func(c acr122u.Card) {
		fmt.Printf("%x\n", c.UID())
	})
}

Using a struct that implements the acr122u.Handler interface

package main

import (
	"log"
	"os"

	"github.com/peterhellberg/acr122u"
)

func main() {
	ctx, err := acr122u.EstablishContext()
	if err != nil {
		panic(err)
	}

	h := &handler{log.New(os.Stdout, "", 0)}

	ctx.Serve(h)
}

type handler struct {
	acr122u.Logger
}

func (h *handler) ServeCard(c acr122u.Card) {
	h.Printf("%x\n", c.UID())
}

NATS

NATS is my favorite messaging system, so let’s see how we can use it with this package:

Publish each UID to a NATS subject

package main

import (
	nats "github.com/nats-io/go-nats"
	acr122u "github.com/peterhellberg/acr122u"
)

func main() {
	nc, err := nats.Connect(nats.DefaultURL)
	if err != nil {
		panic(err)
	}

	ctx, err := acr122u.EstablishContext()
	if err != nil {
		panic(err)
	}

	ctx.ServeFunc(func(c acr122u.Card) {
		nc.Publish("acr122u", c.UID())
	})
}

Subscribe to the NATS subject

package main

import (
	"fmt"
	"runtime"

	nats "github.com/nats-io/go-nats"
)

func main() {
	nc, err := nats.Connect(nats.DefaultURL)
	if err != nil {
		panic(err)
	}

	nc.Subscribe("acr122u", func(m *nats.Msg) {
		fmt.Printf("Received UID: %x\n", m.Data)
	})

	runtime.Goexit()
}
