    Online Service

    We are here to serve : Hatio, Lab.

    You just try to show simple barcode image by request.^FNC1011234567890&wscale=4&hscale=4&rotate=L&parsefnc&alttext=(01)01234567890

    Getting Started

    Install the nodejs module with:

    npm install bwip

    var bwip = require('bwip');
    var bcid = 'code128';
    var wscale = 4;
    var hscale = 4;
    var rotate = 'L';
    var text = '^FNC1011234567890';
    var options = {
        alttext: '(01)01234567890',
        parsefnc: true
    var png = bwip.png(bcid, text, wscale, hscale, rotate, options);

    Sample Barcode Image Server using nodejs

    var url = require('url');
    var http = require('http');
    var bwip = require('bwip');
    function error(res, status, message) {
        res.writeHead(status, { 'Content-Type':'text/plain' });
        res.end(message, 'ascii');
    http.createServer(function(req, res) {
        var args = url.parse(req.url, true).query;
        // Set the defaults
        var wscale  = parseInt(args.wscale, 10) || 2;
        var hscale  = parseInt(args.hscale, 10) || 2;
        var rotate = args.rotate || 'N';
        var bcid   = args.bcid;
        var text   = args.text;
        if (!text)
            return error(res, 400, 'Bar code text not specified.\r\n');
        if (!bcid)
            return error(res, 400, 'Bar code type not specified.\r\n');
        // Remove the non-BWIPP options
        delete args.wscale;
        delete args.hscale;
        delete args.rotate;
        delete args.text;
        delete args.bcid;
        // Return a PNG-encoded image
        var png = bwip.png(bcid, text, wscale, hscale, rotate, args);
        res.writeHead(200, { 'Content-Type':'image/png' });
        res.end(png, 'binary');

    Install the rails module with Gemfile

    gem "bwip"

    And run bundle install. The rest of the installation depends on whether the asset pipeline is being used.

    Rails 3.1 or greater (with asset pipeline enabled)

    The bwip files will be added to the asset pipeline and available for you to use. If they're not already in app/assets/javascripts/application.js by default, add these lines:

    //= require bwip-min


    for Node

    function : bwip.png(bcid, text, wscale, hscale, rotate, options);

    'bcid' is the name of the bwip-js barcode rendering function e.g.

    'text' is the text to be bar coded.

    'wscale' is an integer value from 1 .. 10. Default is 2.

    'hscale' is an integer value from 1 .. 10. Default is 2.

    'rotate' takes the values: N normal, unrotated (the default) R clockwise, 90 rotation L counter-clockwise, 90 rotation I inverted, 180 rotation

    'options' is the object what can take any of the bar code options defined in the BWIPP documentation.


    In lieu of a formal styleguide, take care to maintain the existing coding style. Add unit tests for any new or changed functionality. Lint and test your code using Grunt.

    Feel free to open an issue ticket if you find something that could be improved. A couple notes:

    • If the bwip-js scripts are outdated (i.e. maybe a new version of bwip-js was released yesterday), feel free to open an issue and prod us to get that thing updated. However, for security reasons, we won't be accepting pull requests with updated bwip-js scripts.
