Angular QR Code
````html ````
An AngularJS directive to create QR Codes using Kazuhiko Arase’s qrcode-generator library.
See it in action.


````bash npm install angular-qrcode ````

Script elements

````html ````
````js angular .module('your-module', 'monospaced.qrcode', ); ````


````js import qrcode from 'qrcode-generator'; import ngQrcode from 'angular-qrcode';
// hacks for the browser // if using webpack there is a better solution below window.qrcode = qrcode; require('/nodemodules/qrcode-generator/qrcodeUTF8');
angular .module('your-module', ngQrcode, ); ````

ES2015 + webpack

Add the following to webpack.config.js:
````js new webpack.ProvidePlugin({ qrcode: 'qrcode-generator', }) ````
Import everything, no need for window or require hacks:
````js import qrcode from 'qrcode-generator'; import qrcodeUTF8 from '/nodemodules/qrcode-generator/qrcodeUTF8'; import ngQrcode from 'angular-qrcode';
angular .module('your-module', ngQrcode,
); ````


Version and Error Correction

The amount of data a qrcode can contain is impacted by its version and error-correction-level.
version designates the density of the encoding. If it isn't specifed, it defaults to 5. If the version specified is too small to contain the data given, the next highest version will be tried automatically.
The maximum supported version is 40, and error-correction-leveldefaults to M.
