This project has the following dependencies:
libzxing (see the installation instruction)
ImageMagick with Magick++, MagickWand, MagickCore
libiconv [Preinstalled for OSX]
NOTE: If you're using homebrew, the current formula does NOT include Magick++.
Install the 'ImageMagick' library using homebrew:
brew install imagemagick --with-magic-plus-plus
Install the 'libzxing' library using homebrew:
brew install libzxing
Install the gem, or add it to your Gemfile
gem install qrdecoder # OR gem "qrdecoder", "~>0.1.0"
This library has not been tested on Linux, but may work (possibly with modifications).
The source for libzxing is available on github
To use, simply:
require 'qrdecoder' QRDecoder.decode("path/to/image.jpg")
DEVELOPMENT AND CONTRIBUTING
This project uses Bundler and its own gemspec for dependency management. To get started, just clone the repo and run:
gem install bundler bundle install rake
The default Rake task will compile the C component and run the specs. If it fails to build, make sure that you have libzxing and ImageMagick with Magick++ installed properly.
Please send pull requests. Topic branches are preferred. New features will not be accepted without corresponding tests.
