    I remember Flipboard using canvas to render their UI before using react, which has the same idea, you can look at the repo and their post about it:

    IMO QR and bar codes are so simple you might want to consider a client-side library instead. Save some money and unnecessary dependency on a 3rd party service. I've had pretty good experience with JsBarcode for JS and python-barcode for Python...
