Generate Barcode

Let's generate barcode first. To do that, add milon/barcode package first.

composer require milon/barcode
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Suppose, we have products ID like P-10001, P-10002, P-10003 and so on. To generate custom database ID like this, you can use Laravel ID generator.

Controller code

public function barcode(Request $request){
  $product = Product::find($request->get('id'));
  return view('barcode',compact('product'));
}
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

View code

<div class="barcode">
    <p>{{$product->name}}</p>
    <p>Price: {{$product->sale_price}}</p>
    {!! DNS1D::getBarcodeHTML($product->id, "C128",1.4,22) !!}
    <p>{{$product->id}}</p>
</div>
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Note: Style the barcode css class according to your need. Please keep in mind most commonly used barcode sticker for printing barcode is 100x150mm

Scanning barcode without physical scanner!

After generating barcode basically we need a real physical barcode scanner for scanning barcode from product sticker and feed the code into our application but there is a free solution where you don't need physical barcode reader!

Barcode Client Server is a free barcode reader android application which can read barcode and send it to your PC. It's free and there is no scan limit!

How the Barcode Client Server works

Now when you scan any barcode by android app, it'll send scanned code to your PC immediately 👌
