QR Code and Micro QR Code generator for Inkscape

Project description

QR Code generator for Inkscape

While Inkscape provides a QR Code generator, this extension provides slightly more options (i.e. generation of Micro QR Codes and an optimal error correction level) and should be standard-conform.

This Inkscape extension includes Segno, a BSD-licensed, pure Python library which implements the ISO/IEC 18004:2015(E) standard for QR Codes.


Use pip to install inkscape-qrcode from PyPI:

$ pip install --update --target=<target_dir> inkscape-qrcode

<target_dir> should refer to an absolute path, see below for typical installation directories.

Alternatively copy the inkscape_qrcode.inx and the inkscape_qrcode directory into the target directoy.

The QR Code generator should appear in the menu Extensions > Render > Barcode > QR Code (Segno)
