AI-driven Credit Card scanning software for cross-platform apps built with Capacitor.

Plugin usage

  1. Import blinkcard-capacitor package

    import * as BlinkCard from '@microblink/blinkcard-capacitor';
  2. Initialize plugin

    const plugin = new BlinkCard.BlinkCardPlugin();
  3. Perform scanning by calling the method plugin.scanWithCamera() and pass RecognizerCollection, OverlaySettings you wish to use and license keys. To find out more about licensing, click here.

    async scan() {
    	// Initialize plugin
       const plugin = new BlinkCard.BlinkCardPlugin();
       // Initialize wanted recognizer
       const blinkCardRecognizer = new BlinkCard.BlinkCardRecognizer();
       blinkCardRecognizer.returnFullDocumentImage = true
       // Initialize license 
       const licenseKeys: BlinkCard.License = {
     		ios: '<your_ios_license>',
     		android: '<your_android_license>',
     		showTimeLimitedLicenseKeyWarning: true
       // Perform scan and gather results
       const scanningResults = await plugin.scanWithCamera(
     		new BlinkCard.BlinkCardOverlaySettings(),
     		new BlinkCard.RecognizerCollection([blinkCardRecognizer])
  4. When scanning is completed, variable scanningResults will contain a list of non-empty RecognizerResults from recognizers set in RecognizerCollection. You can then access each result individually. If the scanning is manually closed, the method will return an empty list.

For more information please refer to our sample files in SampleFiles folder and sample application source code.
