When it comes to two-dimensional code, we must be familiar with it , It can be said that the QR code is almost *** To every corner of our lives , For example , We scan the QR code to pay when we go shopping in the supermarket , When we go out, we take the bus and subway to scan the QR code and enter the station , When we go to rookie station to pick up, we scan the QR code to pick up , If one day we meet an interesting person , Maybe wechat will scan the QR code and add a friend , If you read our article and feel like it helps you a little bit , You can also scan the end of the code to pay attention to our official account .

We go through Python As well as the need to generate two-dimensional identification code library :qrcode、myqr、zxing, Installation through pip install qrcode/myqr/zxing that will do .

Two dimensional code structure

First , Let's take a brief look at the structure of QR code , As shown in the figure below :


From the figure, we can see that the overall structure of the two-dimensional code is divided into two parts: function graphics and coding area , Functional graphics are subdivided into : Blank area 、 Position detection pattern 、 Position detection graphic separator 、 Positioning graphics 、 Correct the figure , And the coding area is subdivided into : Format information 、 Version information 、 Data and error correcting codewords , Let's take a brief look at the functions of each part :

  • Blank area : message , There is no need to do anything about

  • Position detection pattern : Help scanning software locate QR code

  • Position detection graphic separator : Distinguish between functional graphics and coding area

  • Positioning graphics : Indicating the density of marks and determining the coordinate system

  • Correct the figure : The number and position of correction figures

  • Format information : Information that stores formatted data

  • Version information : The specifications of the QR code , Two dimensional code symbols share 40 A matrix of two sizes

  • Data and error correcting codewords : The two-dimensional code information and error correction code words actually saved ( Used to correct the error caused by QR code corruption )

Generate qr code

To create a QR code, we can use  qrcode and myqr Two Python library , Let's take a look at it in detail .


We may see some QR codes in our life , After we scanned, we jumped to an address , This function qrcode Can be realized , Take a look at an example :

import qrcode
# QR code content ( Link address or text )data = 'https://www.baidu.com/'# Generate qr code img = qrcode.make(data=data)# Display QR code img.show()# Save QR code # img.save('qr.jpg')

We can scan the above two-dimensional code to jump to the address we set .

The above two-dimensional code is more primitive , We can also simply set it up and beautify it , The code implementation is as follows :

import qrcode
'''version: The size of the lattice matrix of the QR code , It can be 1 To 40,1 The minimum is 21*21,40 yes 177*177error_correction: Error tolerance rate of QR code , Default ERROR_CORRECT_M, Allow less than 15% Error rate box_size: The number of pixels in each cell of QR code border: The number of squares from the QR code to the frame of the picture , The default value is 4'''qr = qrcode.QRCode(    version=2,    error_correction=qrcode.constants.ERROR_CORRECT_L,    box_size=15,    border=3,)# QR code content data = 'https://www.baidu.com/'qr.add_data(data=data)# Enable QR code color settings qr.make(fit=True)img = qr.make_image(fill_color='blue', back_color='white')# Display QR code img.show()


If we are not satisfied with the style of QR code generated above , We need to use myqr The library , It can not only generate ordinary two-dimensional code , Can also generate two-dimensional code with pictures and dynamic two-dimensional code , But when we want to see the generated QR code , You need to go to the save location and open it manually .

Ordinary QR code

So let's use myqr To generate a normal QR code , Take a look at an example :

from MyQR import myqr
'''words: Content version: Fault tolerance save_name: Saved name '''myqr.run(words='https://www.baidu.com/',         version=1,        save_name='myqr.png')

Two dimensional code with graph

We then use myqr To generate a QR code with a graph , Take a look at an example :

from MyQR import myqr
'''picture: The image used to generate the QR code colorized:False For black and white ,True For color '''myqr.run(words='https://www.baidu.com/',         version=1,         picture='bg.jpg',         colorized=True,         save_name='pmyqr.png')

Dynamic QR code

Last , We use myqr To generate a dynamic QR code , Take a look at an example :

from MyQR import myqr
myqr.run(words='https://www.baidu.com/',         version=1,         picture='my.gif',         colorized=True,         save_name='myqr.gif')

Analysis of QR code

We go through zxing Library to identify the QR code , It's easy to use , Let's take an example of :

import zxing
reader = zxing.BarCodeReader()barcode = reader.decode('myqr.gif')print(barcode.parsed)

Execution results :


Of course, we can also beautify the existing two-dimensional code , The way of implementation is :

  • Analyze the content of the existing QR code

  • Use the parsed content to generate a new QR code

Take our official account as an example , As shown in the figure below :

Take a look at the implementation code :

import zxingfrom MyQR import myqr
reader = zxing.BarCodeReader()barcode = reader.decode('gzh.jpg')myqr.run(words=str(barcode.parsed),         version=1,         picture='my.gif',         colorized=True,  save_name='gmyqr.gif')

Take a look at the effect :

Now the two-dimensional code on the scan will jump to our official account .


In this article we show you how to use Python To generate and identify the QR code , Through the study of this article , We can use some static pictures or GIF To make some specific QR code files .
