If you want to get a Node.js application into a Docker container from scratch, it’s recommended to read the official guide – Dockerizing a Node.js web app. It is useful, but not enough for a complicated case. In this post, I’m going to share what problems I have encountered while Dockerizing the Node.js barcode reader app using Dynamsoft Barcode Reader for Linux.
Previously, I shared an article How to Make Node Barcode Reader Addon on Linux, which illustrates how to create a node barcode addon by wrapping Dynamsoft Barcode Reader SDK on Linux. Since Node.js was born for developing network programs, let’s take a glimpse of how to create a Web barcode reader using the node barcode addon.
As cloud computing market continues to skyrocket, more and more IT companies tend to release cloud APIs for developers. Most cloud APIs are exposed via REST (Representational state transfer) Web service. In this post, I will illustrate how to create a barcode reader with Node REST Framework Restify and Dynamsoft Barcode Reader SDK.
Last time, I shared an article Document Imaging and Uploading with Dynamic Web TWAIN (DWT) and Node.js, which demonstrated how to deploy a website on the Web server that implemented in node.js with Express. Today, I’ll re-write the sample with Express application generator and the template engine jade.
