BarcodeDetector Polyfill

Polyfill for BarcodeDetector, part of shape detection api

Implementation

This is basically a Promise wrapper around DecoderWorker from the JOB barcode decoding library.

Note that currently this polyfill enables detection and decoding of 1D barcodes only, 2D barcodes (EG QR-code) might be added in the future using an additional library.

Usage

In the browser

Install:

bower install barcode-detector-polyfill

Use:

<script>
  (function () {
    function loadScript(src, done) {
      var $script = document.createElement('script');
      $script.src = src;
      $script.onload = function() {
        done();
      };
      $script.onerror = function() {
        done(new Error('Failed to load script ' + src));
      };
      document.head.appendChild($script);
    }
    if (BarcodeDetector in window) {
      continueToStartTheApp();
    } else {
      loadScript(
        "bower_components/barcode-detector-polyfill/BarcodeDetector.min.js", 
        continueToStartTheApp
      );
    }
  })()
  // ...
</script>

With webpack

Install:

npm install --save barcode-detector-polyfill

Use:

if ('BarcodeDetector' in window) {
  continueToStartTheApp();
} else {
  require.ensure(['barcode-detector-polyfill'], function(require) {
    const BarcodeDetector = require('barcode-detector-polyfill');
    window.BarcodeDetector = BarcodeDetector;
    continueToStartTheApp();
  }, function(err) {
    console.log('Failed to load BarcodeDetector', err);
  });
}
