Barcode Generator

No algorithm description given

Input has form Information to encode, which is a String but may have additional constraints depending upon the format, for instance EAN 8 requires an 8 digit number and will fail on other inputs. Consult the documentation on each individual standard to clarify. A String file path in the Algorithmia Data API format, for example, "data://util/GeneratedQRCodes/". A filename without a file exentsion, such as "myBarcode". A file extension, such as "jpg" or "png". A String denoting the desired barcode format. See below for options. An int denoting the height of the barcode (in pixels) to produce. 200 seems to work as a default in most cases. An int denoting the width of the barcode (in pixels) to produce. 200 seems to work as a default in most cases. The algorithm returns the full path of the generated barcode (file path + name + "." + suffix). This is based on the zxing library ( ). Options for barcode format include "AZTEC" for the 2D Aztec Code ( ). Aztec is readable /util/BarcodeReader. "CODE_39" for 1D Code 39 ( ). This only accepts a certain set of characters and will fail if given a wrong character. CODE_128 for 1D Code 128 ( ). CODE 128 is readable by /util/BarcodeReader. DATA_MATRIX for the 2D Data Matrix code ( ). This format can be generated but cannot currently be read by /util/BarcodeReader. EAN_8 for 1D EAN 8 ( ). This is not currently readable by /util/BarcodeReader. EAN-13 for 1D EAN 13 (). Must be 13 digits, the last of which is a checksum digit, for instance, "0075678164125." This format is not currently readable by /util/BarcodeReader. ITF for Interleaved Two of Five ( ). "PDF_417" for PDF 417 ( ). This is a stacked linear barcode that is readable by /util/BarcodeReader. "QR_CODE" for 2D QR Codes ( ). This is readable by /util/BarcodeReader. For simplicity it is probably better to use /util/QRCodeGenerator and /util/QRCodeReader. "UPC_A" for UPC A ( ). This is not currently readable by /util/BarcodeReader.

Internet access

This algorithm has Internet access. This is necessary for algorithms that rely on external services, however it also implies that this algorithm is able to send your input data outside of the Algorithmia platform.

To understand more about how algorithm permissions work, see the permissions documentation.

1. Type your input
