Dynamsoft recently released Barcode Reader SDK v5.0 for Windows. You can think of it as a brand new product because a large number of APIs and data structures are redefined. If you have downloaded DBR v5.0 and tried to build Node.js barcode addon with it, you have to spend some time modifying the sample code that written for DBR v4.x. In this article, I will share the difference between DBR v4.x and DBR v5.0, as well as how to update the current code to fit the new interfaces.
Node.js is available for all platforms including IoT devices like Raspberry Pi. In this post, I will demonstrate how to quickly create an online barcode reader on Raspberry Pi using Node.js and Dynamsoft Barcode Reader SDK.
