Barcode Buddy for Grocy

Documentation Status Docker Pulls

Available for:


Pass barcodes to Barcode Buddy. If already in Grocys system, it will consume/add/open the product in Grocy. If an unknown barcode is passed, the product name will be looked up and a corresponding product can be chosen in the Web UI. Tags can be saved - if a new product contains the tag in the name, the product will be already preselected in the drop-down list.


Webserver that supports PHP (eg. NGINX, Apache) or Docker, a Grocy API key and ideally a barcode scanner or Android phone

Getting Started

Barcodes can either manually be added to the programm or the process can be automated by grabbing the input from the scanner.
