Barcode Image Generator

Hey guys,

If you use the following URL:

https://www.barcodesinc.com/generator/image.php?code=***your bar code here***&style=164&type=C128A&width=554&height=100&xres=3&font=5

you can create an image of a barcode. I have used this in google sheets to make dynamic barcodes for shipping. I’m sure someone with a bit of skill could use it to

Hi,
Thanks.
I do it as follow for articles than i scan for making a sales invoice.
I export ID, Name and Price to an Excel file
I have a Brother Label Printer.
With The software you can easily design a label and import the Excel file.
Use the search to identify record (item) and print
Works perfect.
Label are put on articles and scanned with POS

are there any plans to implement this into the core? This would be nice for printing inventory/warehousing/POS labels.

There is actually many python scripts for generation of barcodes like



Maybe some one can make or advise how to use with erpnext ?

Hi @cpurbaugh @jpp

please see here if you want to have Barcodes in your ERPNextdocuments…

Printing Barcoded fields on Custom Print Format

hi @jpp if interested, we have opened this thread [Community Development] Barcode camera scanner and integration. Any contribution is appreciated

I have read some of these and was not satisfied, so I went ahead and started this little project. Check it out. It is very basic, but I think it can be improved upon and eventually be added to the core. It uses the .csv file from Production Planning Tool, and it depends on having the item codes with a barcode in the field.
