Leading Barcode Software introduces barcode generation in WebAssembly and ReactJS for Progressive Web Applications


This version introduces barcode generation for the modern web/Progressive Web Applications (PWA) using WebAssembly and React (ReactJS).

SINGAPORE (PRWEB) August 15, 2018

ConnectCode, a world leading provider of barcode software and fonts, today announced the release of a new version (v11.2) of ConnectCode Barcode Software and Fonts. This version introduces barcode generation for the modern web/Progressive Web Applications (PWA) using WebAssembly and React (ReactJS).

WebAssembly is a web standard, developed by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), that defines an assembly-like binary code format, wasm, for execution in web pages. The executing code runs as fast as native machine code and is meant to optimize performance of web applications significantly. wasm is natively supported by all major browsers e.g. Firefox, Chrome, Safari and Edge.

The new version of ConnectCode introduces a WebAssembly wasm module that generates industry compliant barcodes on web pages or web applications. The wasm barcode module encodes the input data, validates input data, adds check characters, adds start/stop characters, and generates output characters to be displayed as barcodes. Together with W3C compliant barcode fonts, the module enables front end web developers to generate barcodes of the highest quality that meets the strictest requirements of all the industry specifications.

Besides WebAssembly, the latest version of ConnectCode also provides Javascripts and React Components to help web developers generate industry compliant barcodes in React (ReactJS/JSX) applications. React is a popular open source JavaScript library maintained by Facebook and the community for building user interfaces on the web. It has been adopted by many high traffic websites and garnered high interest by modern web developers.

React developers will be able to use the React Components provided by ConnectCode to integrate directly with their applications or use the W3C barcode fonts and Javascripts to create their own custom React components.

With the introduction of WebAssembly and React components, and together with the previous Javascript, TypeScript and jQuery modules, ConnectCode continues to pushed the envelope in high quality and industry compliant barcode generation on web pages, Single Page Applications (SPA) and Progressive Web Applications

Besides WebAssembly and React, ConnectCode Barcode Software and Fonts package also supports the creation of barcodes on a wide variety of platforms and tools such as Powerbuilder, Crystal Reports, Office Excel, Word, Access, Illustrator, Photoshop, .Net DLL, Reporting Services, SQL Server, SQL Server Data Tools (SSDT), Javascript, Windows Universal Barcode & Label app, HTML5, Typescript, jQuery, Windows Command Prompt, Oracle PL/SQL, Microsoft Azure Cloud, and Image Generator. A Mac version of the barcode fonts is also available for companies on hybrid environment of both Windows and Mac. A silent installer is also available on request.
