Also, you can generate a dynamic QR code generator in laravel 9.

So, let's see how to generate QR code in laravel 9, laravel 9 generate QR code, generate QR code laravel 9, how to generate dynamic QR code in laravel 9.

 Step 1 : Install Laravel 9

In this step, we will create laravel 9 application using the below command.

composer create-project --prefer-dist laravel/laravel QRcode

 

 

Step 2 : Install Endroid QR Code Package

After installation of the project, you need to install Endroid QR Code Package using the below command.

composer require endroid/qr-code

 

Step 3 : Create Controller

Now create a controller app\Http\Controllers\QRController.php and add the below command.

<?php

namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use Illuminate\Http\Request;
use Endroid\QrCode\QrCode;
use Endroid\QrCode\ErrorCorrectionLevel;
use Endroid\QrCode\LabelAlignment;

class QRController extends Controller
{
    public function index()
    {
    	return view('qrcode.index');
    }
    
    public function create()
    {
		$qrCode = new QrCode('websolutionstuff.com');
		$qrCode->setSize(500);
		$qrCode->setMargin(10); 
		$qrCode->setEncoding('UTF-8');
		$qrCode->setWriterByName('png');
		$qrCode->setErrorCorrectionLevel(ErrorCorrectionLevel::HIGH());
		$qrCode->setForegroundColor(['r' => 0, 'g' => 0, 'b' => 0, 'a' => 0]);
		$qrCode->setBackgroundColor(['r' => 255, 'g' => 255, 'b' => 255, 'a' => 0]);
		$qrCode->setLogoSize(150, 200);
		$qrCode->setValidateResult(false);

		$qrCode->setWriterOptions(['exclude_xml_declaration' => true]);
		header('Content-Type: '.$qrCode->getContentType());
		$qrCode->writeFile(public_path('/qrcode.png'));

		return redirect()->route('qrcode.index');
    }
}

 

 

Step 4 : Add Route

We need to add a route for generating QR code and viewing files.

<?php

use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Route;
use App\Http\Controllers\QRController;
/*
|--------------------------------------------------------------------------
| Web Routes
|--------------------------------------------------------------------------
|
| Here is where you can register web routes for your application. These
| routes are loaded by the RouteServiceProvider within a group which
| contains the "web" middleware group. Now create something great!
|
*/

Route::get('/', function () {
    return view('welcome');
});

Route::get('qr_code/index',[QRController::class,'index'])->name('qrcode.index');
Route::get('qr_code/create',[QRController::class,'create'])->name('qrcode.create');

 

Step 5 :  Create Blade File

Now, we need to create a blade file for viewing / generating, and downloading QR codes. So, add the below code in your index.blade.php file

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
	<head>
		<meta charset="utf-8">
		<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=edge">
		<title>Laravel 9 QR Code Generator Example - Websolutionstuff</title>
		<link rel="stylesheet" href="https://maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/3.3.7/css/bootstrap.min.css">
	</head>
	<body>
		<form class="text-center" action="{{route('qrcode.create')}}" method="get" accept-charset="utf-8">
			<div class="row mt-5">
				<div class="col-md-12">
					<h2>Laravel 9 QR Code Generator Example - Websolutionstuff</h2>
					<button class="btn btn-success" type="submit">Generate</button> 
					<a href="{{asset('qrcode.png')}}" class="btn btn-primary" download>Download</a><br>
					<img class="img-thumbnail" src="{{asset('qrcode.png')}}" width="150" height="150" style="margin-top: 20px">
				</div>
			</div>
		</form>
	</body>
</html>

You can customize this QR code as per your requirements like background colors, foreground color, QR code size, QR code margin, etc...
