    qcode-decoder

    Decodes QRCode in the browser http://cirocosta.github.io/qcode-decoder/

    Browser Compatibility

    Using in your project

    Download it as a dependency

    $ bower install qcode-decoder

    attach it to your .html file

    <script src="../bower_components/qcode-decoder/build/qcode-decoder.min.js"></script>

    and use it!

    For more examples, see the github.io page and examples folder.

    The API is Pretty simple:

    QCodeDecoder()

    Constructor. No args. Might be create with or without new.

    var qr = new QCodeDecoder();
    // or
    var qr = QCodeDecoder();

    This construction lets us be able to chain some methods (although not very necessary - the API is really simple).

    ::decodeFromImage(img)

    Decodes an image from a source provided or an <img> element with a src attribute set.

    qr.decodeFromImage(img, function (err, result) {
      if (err) throw err;
     
      alert(result);
    });

    ::decodeFromVideo(videoElem, cb, [,once])

    Decodes directly from a video with a well specified src attribute

    QCodeDecoder()
      .decodeFromVideo(document.querySelector('video'), function (err, result) {
        if (err) throw err;
     
        alert(result);
      }, true);

    ::decodeFromCamera(videoElem, cb, [,once])

    Decodes from a videoElement. The optional argument once makes the QCodeDecoder to only find a QRCode once.

    qr.decodeFromCamera(videoElem, function (err) {
      if (err) throw err;
     
      alert(result);
    });

    ::stop()

    Stops the current qr from searching for a QRCode.

    Messing around

    The proper use of camera APIs and, then, the use of this module, the developer needs to first initiate a webserver for running the examples. I suggest going with http-server.
