esc_pos_printer

Pub Version

The library allows to print receipts using an ESC/POS thermal WiFi/Ethernet printer. For Bluetooth printers, use esc_pos_bluetooth library.

It can be used in Flutter or pure Dart projects. For Flutter projects, both Android and iOS are supported.

To scan for printers in your network, consider using ping_discover_network package. Note that most of the ESC/POS printers by default listen on port 9100.

TODO (PRs are welcomed!)

  • Print QR Codes using the GS ( k command (printing QR code from an image already supported)
  • PDF-417 Barcodes using the GS ( k command
  • Line spacing using the ESC 3 <n> command

How to Help

  • Test and report bugs
  • Share your ideas about what could be improved (code optimization, new features...)

Tested Printers

Here are some printers tested with this library. Please add the models you have tested to maintain and improve this library and help others to choose the right printer.

Generate a Receipt

Simple Receipt with Styles:

void testReceipt(NetworkPrinter printer) {
  printer.text(
        'Regular: aA bB cC dD eE fF gG hH iI jJ kK lL mM nN oO pP qQ rR sS tT uU vV wW xX yY zZ');
  printer.text('Special 1: àÀ èÈ éÉ ûÛ üÜ çÇ ôÔ',
      styles: PosStyles(codeTable: 'CP1252'));
  printer.text('Special 2: blåbærgrød',
      styles: PosStyles(codeTable: 'CP1252'));

  printer.text('Bold text', styles: PosStyles(bold: true));
  printer.text('Reverse text', styles: PosStyles(reverse: true));
  printer.text('Underlined text',
      styles: PosStyles(underline: true), linesAfter: 1);
  printer.text('Align left', styles: PosStyles(align: PosAlign.left));
  printer.text('Align center', styles: PosStyles(align: PosAlign.center));
  printer.text('Align right',
      styles: PosStyles(align: PosAlign.right), linesAfter: 1);

  printer.text('Text size 200%',
      styles: PosStyles(
        height: PosTextSize.size2,
        width: PosTextSize.size2,
      ));

  printer.feed(2);
  printer.cut();
}

Print a Receipt

import 'package:esc_pos_printer/esc_pos_printer.dart';

const PaperSize paper = PaperSize.mm80;
final profile = await CapabilityProfile.load();
final printer = NetworkPrinter(paper, profile);

final PosPrintResult res = await printer.connect('192.168.0.123', port: 9100);

if (res == PosPrintResult.success) {
  testReceipt(printer);
  printer.disconnect();
}

print('Print result: ${res.msg}');
