@Jopyth Yup a bar code scanner hooks up to USB and basically just emulates a keyboard by typing in the numbers of the bar code it scanned. It doesn’t need any special drivers.

RE: Get value from Input Box
@Jopyth thanks for the response. Basically I want a bar-code scanner (attached to the rpi) to read a bar-code and send a request to a web service, which entails updates magicmirror. The module you mentioned could work for retrieving the data but me sending an input string in real time to the mirror is what I am unsure of.
Get value from Input Box
I am new to development but love the features and modules which MM offers.
I would however would like to use a string inputted into a hidden input box terminated by return to hit a webservice and update MM to display the results.
Is there anyone that can point me in the right direction to get this going ?
Appreciate the help.
