QrCode helper allows you to render QrCodes on your Yii2 applications.


The preferred way to install this extension is through composer.

Either run

php composer.phar require 2amigos/yii2-qrcode-helper:~1.0

or add

"2amigos/yii2-qrcode-helper" : "~1.0"

to the require section of your application's composer.json file.


The helper comes with some format helper classes that will help you to create the different type of QrCodes that a mobile phone scanner will understand.

The library comes with the following formats:

  • Bitcoin
  • BookMark
  • Geo
  • iCal
  • MailMessage
  • MailTo
  • MeCard
  • MMS
  • Phone
  • Sms
  • vCard
  • Wifi
  • Youtube

There are many more out there, we hope the community will helps us improve the library with facebook, google maps, youtube, and market links. If not, we will add them whenever we have time :)

To render the qrcode, add this to your HTML page:

<img src="<?= Url::to(['route/qrcode'])?>" />

Now, use it on your action:

use dosamigos\qrcode\formats\MailTo;
use dosamigos\qrcode\QrCode;

\\ ...

public function actionQrcode() {
    $mailTo = new MailTo(['email' => 'email@example.com']);
    return QrCode::png($mailTo->getText());
    // you could also use the following
    // return return QrCode::png($mailTo);

That's it, you should have a beautiful QrCode image on your website.
