Thank you

    If this is a Hybrid mobile application, there are Cordova plugins for scanners that work just fine. If this is a PWA type of application, it's a little more difficult, but also possible. There are 3rd party JS libraries that will enable it to work.

    The most common issues that I've seen in this area is that the open source scanner libraries are best with QR codes and only so so with the older barcodes formats. There are a couple of commercial libraries however, that work really well.

    Integrating these libraries into a JET is no different than any other 3rd party library, where you add an entry in the path_mappings.json file for the library and then import or add to a define blocks dependency array.
