qrcode-terminal

QRCodes, in the terminal

QRCode Terminal Edition

Going where no QRCode has gone before.

Node Library

Can be installed with:

$ npm install qrcode-terminal

and used:

var qrcode = require('qrcode-terminal');

To display some data to the terminal just call:

qrcode.generate('This will be a QRCode, eh!');

You can even specify the error level (default is 'L'):

qrcode.setErrorLevel('Q');
qrcode.generate('This will be a QRCode with error level Q!');

If you don't want to display to the terminal but just want to string you can provide a callback:

qrcode.generate('http://github.com', function (qrcode) {
    console.log(qrcode);
});

$ npm install -g qrcode-terminal
$ qrcode-terminal --help
