Python Google Chart 0.2.1 released

I just released pygooglechart 0.2.1. It has several bug fixes and minor additions, but the major change is that it now supports QR codes. You can quite easily create a QR code with pygooglechart as you can see below.

from pygooglechart import QRChart

# Create a 125x125 QR code chart
chart = QRChart(125, 125)

# Add the text
chart.add_data('Hello, World!')

# "Level H" error correction with a 0 pixel margin
chart.set_ec('H', 0)

# Download'qr-hello.png')

This will download a png from the URL:×125&chl=Hello%2C%20World%21&chld=H|0

The image downloaded looks like this:

QR codes are new to me. I’ve only seen a QR code on a bus stop advertisement once in Sydney but I’m sure more will pop up.
