Controll a datamax o'neil labelprinter using DPL
Datamax python adapter
This piece of code allows you to control a datamax-o'neil label printer. You do not need knowledge of the datamax programming language for simple tasks, this module takes care of it.
The module was developed and tested on python 3.6 using a datamax o'neil e-class mark III printer. It still has very limited functionality allowing you to print text labels and QR-codes. In case you need any other features feel free to contribute.
$ pip install datamax-printer
or from source:
$ python setup.py install
from datamax_printer import DPLPrinter printer = DPLPrinter('<ip of the printer>') printer.configure() printer.start_document() printer.set_qr_code(285, 120, 'https://www.innetag.ch/', 9) printer.set_label(300, 60, 'innetag.ch', 9, 10) printer.print()
Please check the
example.py file in our GitHub repository
for a working example.
In case you need more information about the datamax programming language, please check the official DPL documentation. It also contains information about the different fonts available (see Appendix C).
Download the file for your platform. If you're not sure which to choose, learn more about installing packages.
