Printing QR codes with the adafruit thermal pritner

by Grintor on Sun Dec 15, 2013 10:01 pm

I was excited when I saw that the arduino tutorial on the adafruit thermal printer page mentioned printing QR codes. I was disappointed when I read it and found that the tutorial wasn't generating QR codes and printing, just printing stored QR codes that were generated pre-compile. I looked all over the interwebs for a way to generate and print a QR code from Arduino to this thermal printer, but had very little luck. I ended up figuring out a way, and I wrote a library for it. I have never written a library before, so it's a bit messy, but it's functional. I thought I would post it here in case anyone else was looking for a way: https://github.com/grintor/QRprint

I'm glad someone is using my qrduino. Good port.
