Create barcodes with an API

Can anyone recommend a barcode generator I can use via an API and then save it to a field?
I’ve been looking at the Generate Barcode Images in Bulk on Airtable - miniExtensions, however would like to try make a solution myself, as i’ll only generate new barcodes every know and then and not all the time, hence the $39 a month is slightly too exspensive for me atm.

So I’m thinking if something would be possible with the scripting app?

Hello @Kim_Trager1!

The best way to generate barcodes will probably look a little different depending on your workflow. After doing a little investigation it looks like there are a few free APIs that offers free barcode generation that could be used with the Scripting App.

If you’d like to use a formula field instead—here is a Community post for how one user went around using the above API using a formula field.

Let me know if I can help provide any more information, and if this helped answer your question please mark it as the solution :white_check_mark:.

EDIT: Oh geeze I just saw your comment at the end of this thread, you were way ahead of me! :joy:
