Angular Biometric Integration using a Columbo Fingerprint Scanner

Angular Biometric Integration using a Columbo Fingerprint Scanner

In the mid year 2021, after Successfully doing a React Biometric Integration, I asked myself why not do an Angular Biometric Integration using the same Columbo Fingerprint Scanner.

Having done other Web Biometric integrations using various Frameworks, I thought to myself that I could also do an Angular Biometric Integration and assess how difficult or easy it would be to work on an Angular based Web Biometric Identity Management solution.

In recent times, Software Developers are more inclined to choose to implement their solutions with React Native than with Angular.

That’s my unscientific observation. I have no data to back it up with.

However, if you take a keen observation on what Software Developers are saying on the internet, you may notice that there is more buzz about React on Developer Platforms.

With this observation in mind, I could have as well bothered less about Angular and went with the majority’s flow but then I wanted to do what I do best about Biometrics on Angular too just like I had done so with React Native.

After doing multiple Biometric integrations on other JavaScript based frameworks, if asked to choose any other framework, I would go for Angular. I enjoyed doing the Biometric Integration for Angular.

That is my take as of this time of writing circa 2022, I know I have not had significant exposure working on very many other web frameworks based on other programming languages to even begin comparing them with Angular but that’s just what I feel.

The first time someone ever recommended that I try out Angular was I guess around year 2016. The friend was a Delphi developer. I rarely come across Delphi developers but this was one guy who had been developing and supporting a Hospital Management Information System (HMIS) that is widely deployed and in use by many Healthcare Service Providers in my country.

For a long time I really wondered what my Delphi Software Developer friend saw in Angular that he decided to develop applications using it and get to recommend it to his friends.

Getting to do anything on Angular was not a priority in the many Software Applications that I have developed over the years but this time round I decided to get started with Angular by developing and doing an Angular Biometric Integration using a Columbo Fingerprint Scanner.

Here is a photo of a Columbo Biometric Scanner. See below.

The Angular Biometric Integration that I did works on Windows only!

I hope this helps you determine whether this article is worth your valuable time so that you do not spend your useful time reading an article that would not help you.

While still on this, I am a professional and as such I do charge for my services as a Software Engineer that I provide to Companies, Organizations, Institutions or an SME.

I am not a charity nor am I an automatic free code churning machine!

It is not once or twice or thrice that I have busted grown a55 men pretending to be students so that I can help them for free with their work. I smell that sh8 from a far and turn the tables very fast on them.

Because of this, I do not take up any work from students or anyone who thinks I should voluntarily come to their aid and offer them a free helping hand. I have an active spam filter that detects such like emails and automatically deletes them before I even get to see them.

Preparing to Create an Angular Biometric Integration DEMO Application

To get the Angular Biometric integration started I did the following to set up my environment.

Having followed the above steps, I set out to code my Angular Biometric integration App on Visual Studio Code using my Columbo Biometric Scanner.
