When searching for barcode SDK online, you can find lots of free and commercial SDKs. However, there are only a few of SDKs cross-platform, which is why Dynamsoft Barcode Reader is outstanding. Dynamsoft Barcode Reader SDK supports Windows, Linux, macOS, Android, iOS, and Raspberry Pi. Currently, the latest DBR 6.0 is better and faster than the previous version. The imperfection is it only supports Windows so far. If you need an SDK available for all platforms, please choose DBR 5.2. The post will help developers create a Node.js barcode reader with DBR 6.0 on Windows.
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.
