Create a QR Code with Python

Create a QR Code with Python

It is first necessary to install the pyqrcode module. You can execute this command by writing it in your command prompt or terminal.

pip install pyqrcode

It will take a few seconds to install the module. We need to create a Python file from which we will generate a QR code.

1) Import essential modules.

import pyqrcode from pyqrcode import QRCode

2) Create the string that will represent the QR Code.

s = ""

3) The following commands will generate the QR code.

qr = pyqrcode.create(s)

4) The QR code is generated and stored in a 'qr' variable. The svg file can now be created and saved as "website.svg".

qr.svg("website.svg",scale = 7)

Now that we have the code finished, we can run the program. The program creates a .svg file named "website.svg" in the directory where the python file is located. When you open the file, you'll see a QR code (see the QR code image below). Scan it and you will see the string 's' that points to my website.

I have posted this python file's source code on my GitHub repository. Also, check the walk-through on YouTube.
