Note: This project currently does nothing other than have some validation functions. I expect to add additional functionality in the future.

Installation (with composer)

composer require violuke/php-barcodes


// Class instantation
$barcode = '5060411950139';
$bc_validator = new \violuke\Barcodes\BarcodeValidator($barcode);

// Check barcode is in valid format
if ($bc_validator->isValid()) {
	echo 'Valid :)';
} else {
	echo 'Invalid :(';

// Get the barcode type
echo 'Barcode is in format of ' . $bc_validator->getType();
// Possible formats returned are:
