obsqr - minimalistic QR scanner for Android

Build Status

obsqr is a fast and lightweight QR scanner application for Android.

To make it run on your Android device you need to have Andoird 4.0 or higher, and of course your device should have a camera.


obsqr uses zbar library to decode QR images. Zbar sources has been added into libzbar subdirectory, modified to be compiled with NDK, also added minimal iconv implementation.

Since Android NDK is still a second-class citizen - the best way to deal with native code is to build it manually, then copy *.so into src/zbar/jniLibs of the main project tree.

To rebuild ZBar from the sources (optional step):

cd libzbar
export NDK_PATH=/path/to/your/ndk
NDK_PROJECT_PATH=$(pwd) $NDK_PATH/ndk-build
cp -rv libs/* ../src/zbar/jniLibs/

To build obsqr APK:

./gradlew build

To run tests:

./gradlew connectedAndroidTest
