The Flutter barcode SDK plugin is a wrapper for Dynamsoft Barcode Reader SDK. It aims to cover Android, iOS, Web, Windows, Linux and macOS, supporting linear barcode, QR Code, DataMatrix, MaxiCode, PDF417, etc.

What You Should Know About Dynamsoft Barcode SDK #

Build Configuration #

Android #

Change the minimum Android sdk version to 21 (or higher) in your android/app/build.gradle file.

minSdkVersion 21

iOS #

Add the keys to ios/Runner/Info.plist to make camera work:

<string>Can I use the camera please?</string>
<string>Can I use the mic please?</string>

Desktop #

Windows & Linux

Install CMake and platform-specific C++ compiler.


Install Xcode.

To make the demo app work on macOS:

  • Disable com.apple.security.app-sandbox and enable com.apple.security.files.user-selected.read-write in example/macos/Runner/DebugProfile.entitlements:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
    <plist version="1.0">
  • Import DynamsoftBarcodeReader.h to the bridging header file.

    macOS bridging header

Web #

Include <script src="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/dynamsoft-javascript-barcode@8.2.3/dist/dbr.js" data-productKeys="PRODUCT-KEYS"></script> to index.html.

There are two editions: compact edition and full edtion. The compact edition is used as the default. To enable the full edition, you need to add the following line to index.html after including the JS library.

  Dynamsoft.DBR.BarcodeReader._bUseFullFeature = true;

Try Barcode Decoding Example #

Mobile #

The example allows users to scan barcodes via the camera video stream in real-time or read barcodes by taking a picture.

cd example
flutter run -d <device>

Video Scan

flutter barcode scanner

Picture Scan

flutter barcode reader

For building Android release app, configure build.gradle and corresponding proguard file:


buildTypes {
        release {
            // TODO: Add your own signing config for the release build.
            // Signing with the debug keys for now, so `flutter run --release` works.
            signingConfig signingConfigs.debug
            proguardFiles getDefaultProguardFile('proguard-android-optimize.txt'), 'proguard-rules.pro'


-keep class com.dynamsoft.dbr.** { *; }

Usage #

  • Initialize Flutter barcode sdk:

    // Windows, Linux, macOS, iOS and Android
    _barcodeReader = FlutterBarcodeSdk();
    // Web
    _barcodeReader = FlutterBarcodeSdk();
    await _barcodeReader.init();
  • Set a license key:

  • Read barcodes from an image file:

    List<BarcodeResult> results = await _barcodeReader.decodeFile(image-path);
  • Read barcodes from image file bytes:

    Uint8List bytes = await File(image-path).readAsBytes();
    List<BarcodeResult> results = await _barcodeReader.decodeFileBytes(bytes);
  • Read barcodes from video stream CameraImage:

    CameraImage availableImage;
    int format = FlutterBarcodeSdk.IF_UNKNOWN;
    switch (availableImage.format.group) {
      case ImageFormatGroup.yuv420:
        format = FlutterBarcodeSdk.IF_YUV420;
      case ImageFormatGroup.bgra8888:
        format = FlutterBarcodeSdk.IF_BRGA8888;
        format = FlutterBarcodeSdk.IF_UNKNOWN;
    List<BarcodeResult> results = _barcodeReader.decodeImageBuffer(
  • Read barcodes from web browser video stream:

                                (results) => {updateResults(results)});
  • Set barcode formats:

    await _barcodeReader.setBarcodeFormats(BarcodeFormat.ALL);
  • Get current barcode detection parameters:

    String params = await _barcodeReader.getParameters();
    // Convert parameters to a JSON object.
    dynamic obj = jsonDecode(params);
    // Modify parameters.
    if (obj['ImageParameter'] != null) {
      obj['ImageParameter']['DeblurLevel'] = 5;
    } else
      obj['deblurLevel'] = 5;
  • Set barcode detection parameters:

    int ret = await _barcodeReader.setParameters(json.encode(obj));

How to Use the License Key #

Mobile #

No license required. Instead, you need to get an private organization ID and update the plugin code:

parameters.organizationID = "200001";

By default, the public organization ID 200001 authorize developers to use the SDK for 7 days.

Desktop #

Invoke the setLicense() method:


Web #

Update the PRODUCT-KEYS :

<script src="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/dynamsoft-javascript-barcode@8.2.3/dist/dbr.js" data-productKeys="PRODUCT-KEYS"></script>
  Dynamsoft.DBR.BarcodeReader._bUseFullFeature = true;
