faker.providers.barcode

class faker.providers.barcode.Provider(generator)

Bases: faker.providers.BaseProvider

Implement default barcode provider for Faker.

Sources:

ean(length=13, prefixes=())

Generate an EAN barcode of the specified length.

The value of length can only be 8 or 13 (default) which will create an EAN-8 or an EAN-13 barcode respectively.

If a value for prefixes is specified, the result will begin with one of the sequences in prefixes.

Examples:
>>> Faker.seed(0)
>>> for _ in range(5):
...     fake.ean(length=13)
...

ean13(prefixes=())

Generate an EAN-13 barcode.

This method uses ean() under the hood with the length argument explicitly set to 13.

If a value for prefixes is specified, the result will begin with one of the sequences in prefixes.

Note

Codes starting with a leading zero are treated specially in some barcode readers. For more information on compatibility with UPC-A codes, see EnUsBarcodeProvider.ean13().

Examples:
>>> Faker.seed(0)
>>> for _ in range(5):
...     fake.ean13()

ean8(prefixes=())

Generate an EAN-8 barcode.

This method uses ean() under the hood with the length argument explicitly set to 8.

If a value for prefixes is specified, the result will begin with one of the sequences in prefixes.

Examples:
>>> Faker.seed(0)
>>> for _ in range(5):
...     fake.ean8()

localized_ean(length=13)

Generate a localized EAN barcode of the specified length.

The value of length can only be 8 or 13 (default) which will create an EAN-8 or an EAN-13 barcode respectively.

This method uses the standard barcode provider’s ean() under the hood with the prefixes argument explicitly set to local_prefixes of a localized barcode provider implementation.

Examples:
>>> Faker.seed(0)
>>> for _ in range(5):
...     fake.localized_ean()
...
