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.
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.
libuv is a cross-platform C library for Node.js asynchronous I/O model. It implements Node.js event loop and uses a thread pool to avoid blocking the Node.js event loop with time-consuming I/O operations. The post shares how to use libuv to optimize Dynamsoft barcode addon for Node.js.
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.
