Dynamsoft Barcode Reader 6.0 is on the way. The major upgrade version improves the performance of barcode detection and recognition dramatically. It is over two times faster than version 5.2. In this post, I will disclose some new features and demonstrate the corresponding APIs.
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.
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.
When porting code from Python 2 to Python 3, it is not as easy as you imagined no matter whether the primary programming language is Python or C/C++. Re-compiling the Dynamsoft Barcode extension for Python 3 is a challenge because I only found a few of documentation and resources online. Luckily, I succeeded in using Python 3 compatible APIs after reading the source code of Numpy.
A few weeks ago, Apple released Swift 4.0 which is available for macOS and Ubuntu 14/16. In this post, I will share how to implement a simple Swift barcode reader (command line tool) with Dynamsoft Barcode Reader SDK for Linux.
According to the statistics of Stack Overflow traffic, Python is the fastest-growing major programming language in high-income countries. Python seems to be promising in the future. I have noticed that many of the developers who would like to use Dynamsoft Barcode Reader SDK for Linux are more interested in Python rather than C/C++ or Java. In this post, I will illustrate how to build the Python barcode extension with DBR 5.2.
From version 4.x to 5.x, Dynamsoft improved Barcode SDK performance with a big leap. Unfortunately, only Windows edition is available for download so far. In this post, I will share how to create a Node.js extension with the preview version of Dynamsoft Linux Barcode SDK 5.2. If you are interested in Windows edition, please read – Building Node.js Barcode Addon with DBR v5.0.
This article is about how to use OpenCV and Dynamsoft Barcode Reader SDK to create a Python barcode reader on macOS.
Chrome OS, developed by Google, is a light-weighted operating system based on the Linux kernel. It uses Chrome web browser as the user interface that primarily supports web applications released as Chrome extensions. However, Chrome extension is not fresh to me. When running Chrome OS in a virtual machine, I wondered whether it is possible to run native apps. In this article, I want to share how to run a console application built with Dynamsoft C/C++ Barcode SDK on Chrome OS.
