Laravel is a PHP Framework. This article shares how to use Dynamic Web TWAIN to scan and upload documents in a Laravel project.
Two years ago, I created a sample for demonstrating how to wrap Dynamsoft Barcode Reader 4.2, a C++ barcode library, as an extension for PHP5. How time flies, the latest barcode library is up to version 5.2. Meanwhile, many developers start to write web program in PHP7. This post will help PHP developers figure out how to build a PHP barcode reader on Ubuntu 16.04 with DBR 5.2 and PHP7.
When using PHP native extensions, you have to carefully match the right PHP version. Otherwise, it may cause a compatibility issue. In addition, the web server deployment of a PHP project with customized extensions is complicated as well. A proper solution for quickly experiencing a PHP project is to use Docker. In this article, I will demonstrate how to Dockerize the PHP barcode reader project built with Dynamsoft Barcode Reader SDK for Linux.
No matter whether you are a web developer or an end-user, you probably have heard of the terms SaaS, Paas, and IaaS. They are three different models of cloud service. Why more and more people tend to embrace web and cloud services such as Google Cloud, Azure, and AWS? Because no application download and installation needed. A variety of software and functions can be accessed via web browsers. Assuming you want to build a web barcode reader as a service from scratch. Using Dynamsoft Barcode Reader SDK will expedite your development.
Last week, I shared how to build PHP extension on Linux, as well as how to make a simple PHP barcode reader with a few lines of PHP code. In this post, I will illustrate how to implement an online barcode reader with the custom PHP extension, and how to deploy the PHP project to Apache and Nginx on Ubuntu 14.04.
Dynamsoft Barcode Reader for Windows includes dynamic-link libraries for C/C++, DotNET and COM. If you want to use high-level programming languages such as Python, PHP, Java, Ruby and so on to create barcode reader apps with Dynamsoft Barcode Reader, you could either make a C/C++ wrapper as an extension or use COM objects. To create a PHP extension on Windows, you can refer to the sample code on Dynamsoft GitHub repository. Nevertheless, when making PHP extension, many developers suffered from the issue of PHP version number mismatch. Therefore, using COM in PHP seems to be more convenient.
Dynamsoft Barcode Reader SDK written in C/C++ is capable of reading a variety of 1D and 2D barcode formats including Code 39, Code 93, Code 128, Codabar, QRCode, DataMatrix, PDF417 and so on. In this post, I’m going to demo how to use the SDK to make a simple Web barcode reader app with PHP and Nginx.
In this tutorial, I’d like to share how to write a simple Android application to take a picture, as well as upload the image to a remote PHP server. Let’s get started with a simple Java application.
