API Instructionsgenerate qr codes on your own website

About

You can use this API for free on your website. Important to know is that the generated QR codes are only being cached for 24 hours. This is unlike the 365 days of our main service. Why? Well the purpose of this API is primarily for direct sharing. For long time sharing we recommend to use our standard service.

Getting Startet

You can use the QRtag.net API as a normal image. Just use the following URL structure:

https://qrtag.net/api/qr(_[size]).[png|svg](?url=[URL])

Your QR code will link by default with the page on which is was embedded. If you want to use another URL add the "?url=[URL]" parameter, where [URL] is the URL that the QRtag links. For the image output you can choose between PNG (a transparent bitmap image) or SVG (a vector orientated image). The size of each pixel can be determined with the [size] parameter.
