On mobile platforms, HTML5 is not only supported by web browsers, such as Safari, Firefox, Opera, Chrome, but also web view UI component that used for building native apps. The benefit is apparent that any developer who is familiar with web programming could easily create excellent mobile apps for Android and iOS. Dynamsoft Barcode Reader SDK provides .NET APIs for Windows. You can implement a barcode reading module on server-side (IIS), and detect barcode images that captured from any mobile devices using HTML5. The article will illustrate how to make a mobile barcode reader based on B/S (Browser/Server) architecture.
Dynamsoft Barcode Reader SDK written in C/C++ is capable of reading a variety of 1D and 2D barcode formats including Code 39, Code 93, Code 128, Codabar, QRCode, DataMatrix, PDF417 and so on. In this post, I’m going to demo how to use the SDK to make a simple Web barcode reader app with PHP and Nginx.
