This QR Code is printed using ASCII characters. Thus, it is compatible with most of the terminals. However, it might not fit into small terminal windows. For a more compact QR Code, use the unicode version.
To get a compact QR Code, we have option for unicode QR. Press
u to print QR-Code drawn using unicode.
Unicode QR-Code can easily fit inside a 80x25 terminal. However, the terminal must have support for unicode character-set. Otherwise the result is unpredictable.
Pinggy also supports keywords
aqr while creating tunnel to print QR in the TUI like the following.
This keyword needs to be passed with the username as following
ssh -p 443 -R0:localhost:8000 firstname.lastname@example.org
If one wants to pass other keyword like a token, add it with a
+ like this
ssh -p 443 -R0:localhost:8000 email@example.com
qr would produce QR code in unicode while
aqr would produce QR code in ASCII.
