myqr
blow.)

# summary
myqr    Words
        [-v {1,2,3,...,40}]
        [-l {L,M,Q,H}]
        [-n output-filename]
        [-d output-directory]
        [-p picture_file]
        [-c]
        [-con contrast]
        [-bri brightness]

Common QR-Code

#1 Words
myqr https://github.com
  • Just input a URL or a sentence, then get your QR-Code named 'qrcode.png' in the current directory.

#2 -v, -l
myqr https://github.com -v 10 -l Q
  • The default size of QR-Code depends both on the numbers of words you input and the level, while the default level (Error Correction Level) is H (the highest).

  • Customize: If you want to control the size and the error-correction-level, use the

    -v
    and
    -l
    arguments.

-v
representing the length is from a minimum of 1 to a maximum of 40.

-l
representing the error correction level is one of L, M, Q and H, where L is the lowest level and H is the highest.
#3 -n, -d
myqr https://github.com   -n github_qr.jpg   -d .../paths/
  • The default output-filename is 'qrcode.png', while the default output-directory is current directory.

  • Customize: You can name the output-file and decide the output-directory. Notice that if the name is as same as a existing file, the old one will be deleted.

-n
representing the output-filename could be in the format one of
.jpg
.png
.bmp
.gif
.

-d
means directory.

Artistic QR-Code

#1 -p
myqr https://github.com -p github.jpg
  • The
    -p
    is to combine the QR-Code with the following picture which is in the same directory as the program. The resulting picture is black and white by default.
#2 -c
myqr https://github.com -p github.jpg -c
  • The
    -c
    is to make the resulting picture colorized.

#3 -con, -bri
myqr https://github.com -p github.jpg [-c] -con 1.5 -bri 1.6
  • The

    -con
    flag changes the contrast of the picture - a low number corresponds to low contrast and a high number to high contrast. Default: 1.0.
  • The

    -bri
    flag changes the brightness and the parameter values work the same as those for
    -con
    . Default: 1.0.

Animated GIF QR-Code

The only difference from Artistic QR-Code mentioned above is that you should input an image file in the

.gif
format. The you can get your black-and-white or colorful qr-code. Remember that when you use
-n
to customize the output-filename, then the output-filename must end by
.gif
.

Import Way

# after installation
from MyQR import myqr
version, level, qr_name = myqr.run(
    words,
    version=1,
    level='H',
    picture=None,
    colorized=False,
    contrast=1.0,
    brightness=1.0,
    save_name=None,
    save_dir=os.getcwd()
    )

details about each parameter are as mentioned above

# help(myqr)
Positional parameter
   words: str

Optional parameters version: int, from 1 to 40 level: str, just one of ('L','M','Q','H') picutre: str, a filename of a image colorized: bool constrast: float brightness: float save_name: str, the output filename like 'example.png' save_dir: str, the output directory

Tips

  • Use a nearly square picture instead of a rectangle one.

  • If the size of the picture is large, you should also choose a rightly large

    -v
    instead of using the default one.
  • If part of the picture is transparent, the qr code will look like:

You can change the transparent layer to white, and then it will look like:

Supported Characters

  • Numbers:

    0~9
  • Letters:

    a~z, A~Z
  • Common punctuations:

  · , . : ; + - * / \ ~ ! @ # $ % ^ & ` ' = < > [ ] ( ) ? _ { } | and  (space)

Dependencies

(TIPS: Without a installed MyQR, you should use

pip install -r requirements.txt
to ensure you have all dependencies.)
