Cross-platform terminal application for reading NFC tag UID and write it as keyboard output to text field in any application.
Application read NFC tag UID using PC/SC API. PC/SC is a standard to interface computers with smartcards, available on most operating systems, including Windows, MacOS, Linux. UID writed in active text input field by generating keystrokes on the keyboard. So cursor should be in some text input field. UID output format options are available.

Run with '-h' flag to check usage
//This will auto-select first available PC/SC device in system //Output will be in direct order //Bytes of UID will be in hex format //Between bytes of UID will be hyphen ("-") printed //At end of UID newline will be printed nfcuid -end-char=enter -in-char=hyphen -caps-lock=false -reverse=false -decimal=false -device=1 //Output 04-ae-65-ca-82-49-80
