Welcome to the eidreader project page.

eidreader is a tool to read data from Belgian eID cards that are inserted into a local SD card reader. It is designed to be used together with a web application.

eidreader 1.x was a command-line script to be executed each time you wanted to read a card. eidreader 2.x is a long-running daemon process that continuously polls the card reader and posts the data to a constant URL.

Not to be mixed up with its deprecated Java predecessor eidreader (same project name but another account).

If you encounter any problems during installation or usage, or if you have suggestions or feature requests, please report your issues here: https://github.com/lino-framework/eidreader/issues
