QuaggaJS is a barcode-scanner entirely written in JavaScript supporting real-time localization and decoding of various types of barcodes such as EAN and CODE128. The library is also capable of using getUserMedia to get direct access to the user’s camera stream. Although the code relies on heavy image-processing even recent smartphones are capable of locating and decoding barcodes in real-time.
