QR Code Generator in HTML CSS & JavaScript

Hey friends, today in this blog, you’ll learn how to create a QR Code Generator in HTML CSS & JavaScript. In the earlier blog, I have shared how to create a Random Quote Generator in JavaScript, and now it’s time to make a QR Code Generator in JavaScript.

QR (Quick Response) codes are capable of storing lots of data, and users can easily access the information by scanning the QR code. In my QR Code Generator app, users can enter a text or URL to generate a QR code for it. It is a QR code generator app, not a QR code scanner.

If you’re feeling difficulty to understand what I’m saying or what this QR code generator looks like then you can watch a video tutorial of this QR code generator in JavaScript.

Video Tutorial of QR Code Generator in JavaScript

 

 
In the above video, you’ve seen the demo of a QR code generator and how I created it using HTML CSS & JavaScript. As you have seen, to generate a QR code of user inputs, I used the qrserver API. So, I believe you’ve understood the codes and concepts behind creating this QR app even if you’re a beginner at it.

If you liked this QR code generator and want to get source codes or files of it, you can easily get them from the bottom of this page.

But, if you’re a too beginner, I suggest you watch the above video two or three times and try to create it by yourself because in the video I’ve explained each JavaScript line with written comments that helps you to understand the codes more easily.
