QRcode Generator for R A hexagon with the word qrcode and a qrcode linking to the DOI

A QR code is a two-dimensional barcode developed by the Denso Wave company.

The current implementation handles three modes: numeric, alphanumeric and byte. Kanji is currently not supported. Please contact the maintainer if you need it.

Main functions

The main qr_code() function returns an object of the qr_code class. This is a logical matrix with specific methods for printing and plotting. The print version uses UTF-8 drawing symbols and the result depend on the font used. For a better quality QR code it best to use plot() or generate_svg().

library(qrcode)
code <- qr_code("QR CODE")
print(code)

Installation

The qrcode package is available from CRAN, R universe and GitHub.

# install from CRAN
install.packages("qrcode")
# install from R universe
install.packages("qrcode", repos = "https://thierryo.r-universe.dev")
# install from GitHub use the remotes package
remotes::install_github("ThierryO/qrcode")

Legacy code

The legacy function qrcode_gen() had several known bugs. Because of these bugs, we re-implemented the code from scratch in version 0.1.4. We created new functions. The old functions are defunct since version 0.2.0.
