Example QR Code

Project Identification using QR Codes

QR code


1. Enable links to external images to allow images hosted on an external website (e.g. the QR codes) to be displayed: http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:Linked_images#External_image_syntax

1.1 Less secure way: allow all images http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:$wgAllowExternalImages

1.2 more secure way: all images from this site: http://chart.apis.google.com/ http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:$wgAllowExternalImagesFrom

2. Add this the Extension to embed RSS feeds: http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:RSS

3. Identify a couple more projects in the hackspace + print trial QR labels for them.


Attach printed-out QR codes to each project. That QR code will contain a link to the relevant project page on the wiki.


Project boxes and projects in the hackspace.


With any luck from 4th August onwards. I will print out a test batch.


This will facilitate collaboration as everyone can then find the most relevant wiki page for that project quickly.


Current project collaborators: samthetechie


I will use the google charts API (credit to jonty for the recommend). That will generate the QR code images.
