API documentation
For full documentation visit: https://documentation.anyline.com/toc/platforms/javascript/index.html
To test Anyline download the Example Sheets with testing material: https://anyline.com/samples


npm install @anyline/anyline-js


  1. Copy the content of anylinejs to your webserver. In some cases you need to configure your webserver to serve data and wasm.gz files.

AnylineJS has to be served from a web server that supports HTTPS.
  1. Import AnylineJS

import { init } from '@anyline/anyline-js';

Alternatively you can also directly import anyline.js using a script tag:
<script src="anyline.js"></script>

This will expose anylinejs to the window scope:
const { init } = window.anylinejs;

  1. Initialize AnylineJS

const anyline = init({
  preset: 'meter', // id, ocr, ehic, ...
  license: 'enter_your_license_key_here',
  // html container where anylineJS should be mounted to
  element: document.getElementById('root'),
  // location of the data files from step 1 (can also be an https link)
  anylinePath: '../anylinejs',

  1. Start scanning


  1. Handle the scan result

anyline.onResult((data) => {

Preload assets

In order to use preloading update your configuration as shown below and call the preload method. Example
const anyline = init({
  preload: true,


Try it locally

npm run demo
npm run demo:network
In this case the HTTPS server uses a self-generated certificate so you might need to bypass the security measures of your browser. With a proper test-license issued for your internal ip-address you can test it on other devices on the network (i.E. for smartphone testing).
The license included in the demo only allows AnylineJS to run on

Typescript support

You can access the types by importing the Types object
import { Types } from '@anyline/anyline-js';
