Qr code scanner

Project description


A QRcode webcam scanner for win10 only (no opencv, no pyzbar). There are many tutorials available that explain how to scan a barcode using your webcam with python. They all make use of opencv for camera access and pyzbar for decoding the barcode, but windows10 has all these capabilities built-in, and I wanted to use these, assuming this would lead to a cleaner/better (?) solution.

This package makes use of the python bindings for winrt (, which allows using the "Universal Windows Platform" API directly. For Barcode specific info:


pip install winrtqrabber


Clone the repo or copy the and requirements.txt file.

From inside a virtual environment install the requirements: pip install -r requirements.txt

Run the demo: python
