Quick Examples

Code 11 Example

import { SymbologyType, createStream } from 'symbology'

(async () => {
  const { data } = await createStream({
    symbology: SymbologyType.CODE11
  }, '8765432164')

  console.log('Result: ', data)
})()

This will log:

{
  "data": "data:image/png+data;base64,PHN [...] eFd==",
  "message": "Symbology successfully created.",
  "code": 0
}

And the base64 PNG generated will look like:
