Handling Barcodes in Rails App

Recently we have had two projects where we needed to generate barcodes based on the particular numbers that were stored by our Ruby on Rails application. To get things working we did the first thing that would come to anyone’s mind – search for a gem to do that. The problem is, there are not many gems that offer such funcionality.
