USB barcode scanner with GUI

Wed Jul 25, 2018 5:36 pm

I want to create a portable scanner just like you see in supermarkets that checks the price. The materials I will be using are a usb barcode scanner, python, raspberry pi, and an lcd touchscreen. What GUI can I use to create this and also what database should I use? Please help! Need it to complete a school project.

Also how do I connect the scanner which gets data from the database with items to display to the GUI ? Just a beginner in python and rasp.

Maybe if you demonstrated some personal time and effort into solving your problems folks would be more inclined to help you over the "rough spots" in your code or implementation. Your post reads like you're asking folks here to tell you how to do it and I somehow doubt your instructor would appreciate that kind of assistance. So, time to knuckle down and study ...

Good luck.
