Unofficial API wrapper for Open EAN/GTIN Database

Project description

OpenEAN

Library to use the api of the Open EAN/GTIN Database

serves as API wrapper for the api of this EAN/GTIN database service

Getting started

Install the library from pypi via pip install openean

Then you need an user_id for the service; more info how you get that

There is also an id for small tests: "400000000" as described here https://opengtindb.org/faq.php#g

from openean.OpenEAN import OpenEAN


userID = 400000000  #user your own id here

openean = OpenEAN(userID)

barcode_num = 1111 #barcode number of you product

items = openean.parse(barcode_num)
#items is a list of possible products associated with the code
# the properties of each item are described here https://opengtindb.org/api.php

#only to show you structure of working results
#not needed for use
from pprint import pprint
for item in items:
    pprint(vars(item))

Thanks to

The creators of the API for making this possible and please consider donating to "Kueste gegen Plastik" if you like this service to help the creators of the database running it.
