A few weeks ago, Dynamsoft released an iOS camera SDK that aims to help developers quickly build a document scanning app for iOS platform. In this post, I will share how to configure the SDK in Xcode, as well as how to create a simple document scanner app from scratch.
OpenCV is written in C++. If you install OpenCV library on Windows, you will see OpenCV officially provides wrappers for Python and Java but not for C#. Fortunately, there are many .NET open source projects for wrapping OpenCV C++ APIs, and thus we don’t need to write a wrapper from scratch. In this post, I will share how to use OpenCV library and Dynamsoft Barcode Reader SDK to create a .NET barcode reader app on Windows.
Jenkins is an open-source continuous integration tool. I am new to Jenkins. To get familiar with it, I decided to start learning from a CMake project written with Dynamsoft Barcode Reader.
Dynamsoft finally released Barcode Reader SDK v5.2 for Raspberry Pi. It is time to make an update. In this post, I will show you how to install the SDK, as well as how to write a simple Raspberry Pi barcode app using C/C++ and Python.
Last week, I built a package for Dynamsoft Barcode Reader using Chocolatey. One thing disappointed me that I can’t specify the installation directory if I don’t have a licensed Chocolatey edition. It means all packages will be installed to C:\ProgramData\chocolatey\lib. I do worry about my C drive storage spaces. Therefore, I decided to use PowerShell script moving Chocolatey packages. Although I’ve been a Windows user for many years, I never touched PowerShell before. What I’m going to do is to use PowerShell to move the package to a new location, remove the old package and register the destination directory to the environment path.
Most windows users like to download an installer to install software. However, for developers, probably they would rather like to use a command line tool (APT, Homebrew, etc.), like they get used on Linux and macOS, to install a program. Chocolatey is a command line package manager for Windows.
