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.
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.
