Generation of the Code128a barcode
A simple barcode generator (full python solution)
This library makes use of Pillow to generate the barcode image, it also fully supports extended ASCII which I found most other libraries did not support except GNU barcode in raw mode.
python -m pip install code128agen
from code128agen import generate_bar_widths, write_barcode_to_image_file, write_barcode_to_image test_str_unicode = '12345678ÐEª2345FD' bars = generate_bar_widths(test_str_unicode) # generates the bar widths for generating image. pil_image = write_barcode_to_image(bars) # if you want to manipulation the image with PIL. write_barcode_to_image_file(bars, 'test.png') # writes out file to specified file name.
