QR Code

This project has for goal to let you easily generate a QR code in your DeckDeckGo presentation.

However, this Web Component could be use with or without DeckDeckGo respectively could be use in any web projects.

To generate the QR code, the project qrcode-generator from Kazuhiko Arase is used.


This Web Component let you generate QR code like the following as svg (default) or img:

Optionally you could also display a logo over your QR code:

Getting Started

The DeckDeckGo - QR Code Web Component could be use directly in your project from a CDN, using a simple script include, or could be installed from npm.

Using DeckDeckGo QR Code from a CDN

It's recommended to use unpkg to use the DeckDeckGo Code from a CDN. To do so, add the following include script in the main HTML file of your project:

<script src="https://unpkg.com/deckdeckgo-qrcode@latest/dist/deckdeckgo-qrcode.js"></script>

Install DeckDeckGo QR Code from NPM

Install DeckDeckGo - QR Code in your project from npm using the following command:

npm install deckdeckgo-qrcode

Framework integration

The Stencil documentation provide examples of framework integration for Angular, React, Vue and Ember.


The <deckgo-qrcode/> Web Component will generate per default a <svg/> QR code with a correction level set to high.

Optionally, it's also possible to generate the QR code as an <img/> and/or to display a logo over it.


To display a logo over your QR code, this Web Component provide a slot called logo.


The <deckgo-qrcode/> expose the following properties:

Property Attribute Description Type Default Only applies for type <img/>
content content The content, a text or an url, of the QR code to generate string
type type The type of QR code to generate, <svg/> or <img/> string svg
qrCellSize qr-cell-size The size of the cell, useful to generate a bigger QR code, specially in case of <img/>. Use it wisely, I suggest a value between 0 and 20 for example. number
qrMargin qr-margin The size of the code margin, in case you would like more spacing number
qrAlt qr-img-alt An alternate text for the image of the QR code string X
qrBackgroundColor qr-img-background-color The background color of the QR code. The value should be provided in a RGB-hex format. For example: FF0000. string X
qrFillColor qr-img-fill-color The color use to fill the QR code. The value should be provided in a RGB-hex format. For example: FF0000. string X


The <deckgo-qrcode/> could be styled using the following CSS4 variables which would only applies on the type <svg/>:

CSS4 variable Default Note Only applies for type <svg/>
--deckgo-qrcode-container-display inline-block The display property of the shadow host and the code container
--deckgo-qrcode-size The size, width and height, of the QR code X
--deckgo-qrcode-logo-ratio-size 3 If you are injecting a logo, its size, width and height, will be calculated with --deckgo-qrcode-size (or 100% if not provided) divided by this value X
--deckgo-qrcode-border-stroke The border color of the QR code X
--deckgo-qrcode-background-fill transparent The QR code's background X
--deckgo-qrcode-color-fill The QR code's color (the color of the QR code's squares it contains) X

Styling type img

In oder to style QR code if its type is set to <img/>, you will need to use properties instead of CSS4 variables.


The <deckgo-qrcode/> component exposes the following method in case you would like to refresh your QR code, for example on resize of the window on in case you would set its content asynchronously:

generate() => Promise<void>


You could find all the examples in the src/index.html of the project.

<deckgo-qrcode content="https://deckdeckgo.com" style="--deckgo-qrcode-size: 300px;">

Example with a logo:

<deckgo-qrcode content="https://myurl.com">
  <img slot="logo" src="my-logo.svg"/>

QR Code with logo

It's possible to display a logo over your QR Code as the code generated with this Web Component have a correction level set to high meaning, if I understand correctly, that your content is encoded and displayed multiple times inside the QR code. Therefore, even if the logo cover a part of it, it will be still possible for a reader to read the content from "somewhere else" in the code.

However, test it carefully and play with the colours, cell-size and size of your code to ensure its readability.
