QR codes can be scanned by a smartphone or other device to open a website, watch a video, or access other encoded information. They are becoming increasingly popular because they are easy to use and can be used to store a lot of data in a small space. In this blog post, we will show you how to generate text QR codes in Python. We will provide a step-by-step guide and code snippets to help you develop your own text to QR code generator in Python.
This article covers the following topics:
- Text to QR Code Generator Python API
- Text to QR Code in Python
- Customize Text to QR Code Generation
- Generate a QR Code with Text

Text to QR Code Generator Python API
We will use the Aspose.BarCode for Python API to generate QR codes from text. It allows generating and reading barcodes and QR codes in Python. The API supports over 60 barcode symbols, such as QR code, Code 128, Code 39, EAN, UPC, and many more. It allows developers to easily save the generated barcode or QR code in various image formats, such as PNG, JPEG, and TIFF.
pip install aspose-barcode-for-python-via-net
Text to QR Code in Python
We can generate a QR code from text with Aspose.BarCode for Python by following the steps below:
- Create an instance of the BarcodeGenerator class.
- Set the EncodeTypes as “QR”.
- Specify the input text to encode.
- Optionally, specify QR code customization options.
- Finally, call the save() method to save the generated QR code image at the given file path.
The following code sample shows how to create a QR code using Python.
Customize Text to QR Code Generation in Python
We can customize the appearance of QR codes generated from text by following the steps mentioned earlier. However, we need to set additional properties to customize the background color, border color, image height, etc.
The following code sample shows how to customize text to QR code generation in Python.
Generate QR Code with Text in Python
We can add human-readable text to the generated QR code image. It can be a main text label, a top caption, or a bottom caption. We can add code text and the caption below by following the steps mentioned earlier. However, we just need to set the code_text_parameters and caption_below properties as shown below:
