Run our Sample Apps

The best way to start working with the Scandit Data Capture SDK is to run one of our sample apps. In this guide we will go through the available apps and how to run them.

Available Samples

We have created simple samples that show you how use various features of the Scandit Data Capture SDK.

Here’s a list of our available samples on the Web:

Run the Samples

Before you can run a sample app, you need to go through a few simple steps:

  1. Set the license key. To do this, sign in to your Scandit account and find your license key at

Once you have the license key, add it to the sample that you’d like to run:

await SDCCore.configure({
  licenseKey: "YOUR_LICENSE_KEY_HERE",
  1. Install the dependencies:

npm install
  1. Build the sample:

npm run build
  1. Serve the sample:

npm run serve
  1. Open http://localhost:8888 with your browser.

  2. You can use an SSH tunnel to access the running sample from another device via the internet. To do so, you can install ngrok <> and create a tunnel to the running sample.

    Make sure you use the HTTPS tunnel because most of the browsers will deny permission to access the camera in non-secure contexts.

    ngrok http 8888
