Nice work, Mark! So has HEB shutdown your access to that private API yet? 😎️

Like you, I found QuaggaJS to be grossly out of date, but was able to get it working...almost. It open the camera, I can see the video, but it doesn't do anything with barcodes. From your demo video, it appears the detection and decoding is automatic--once the barcode is in the view, it just finds it and decodes it--firing Quagga's onDetected() handler. Right?

My onDetected is never firing and no errors in console.

Thanks for sharing you work! ☕️
