QR Code Scanner or Reader Project (Source Code)

As you may know, a QR code scanner is a scanning device that is able to read QR codes. Most the phone has a built-in QR code scanner app.

In this blog, I’m not going to create a QR code scanner by the camera instead of this, in my QR code reader app, users can upload any QR code image and decode or extract the content from it, as you’ve seen in the image preview.

Using fetch API of JavaScript, I sent the user’s uploaded QR code to the API, and API processed the code and responded back to the data. If you’re already familiar with the fetch method, you can easily understand the logic and codes of this QR code reader.

But, if you’re unfamiliar with this, I want you to learn the fetch method or watch the above YouTube video multiple times to understand it. In the video, I’ve explained these things.

If you like this QR code scanner or reader and want to get source codes, you can easily copy or download them from the bottom of this page. I recommend you to download the files instead of copy.

  <body>
    <div class="wrapper">
      <form action="#">
        <input type="file" hidden>
        <img src="#" alt="qr-code">
        <div class="content">

      </form>
      <div class="details">
        <textarea spellcheck="false" disabled></textarea>
        <div class="buttons">
          <button class="close">Close</button>

closeBtn = document.querySelector(".close"),
copyBtn = document.querySelector(".copy");

function fetchRequest(file, formData) {
    infoText.innerText = "Scanning QR Code...";
    fetch("http://api.qrserver.com/v1/read-qr-code/", {
        method: 'POST', body: formData
    }).then(res => res.json()).then(result => {
        result = result[0].symbol[0].data;
        infoText.innerText = result ? "Upload QR Code to Scan" : "Couldn't scan QR Code";
        if(!result) return;
        document.querySelector("textarea").innerText = result;
        form.querySelector("img").src = URL.createObjectURL(file);
        wrapper.classList.add("active");
    }).catch(() => {
        infoText.innerText = "Couldn't scan QR Code";
    });
}

fileInp.addEventListener("change", async e => {
    let file = e.target.files[0];
    if(!file) return;
    let formData = new FormData();
    formData.append('file', file);
    fetchRequest(file, formData);
});

copyBtn.addEventListener("click", () => {
    let text = document.querySelector("textarea").textContent;
