Here we put some links to other projects that you can be interesting in.


Support for program languages


  • NFC is a ruby wrapper for the Near Field Communication library, written by Aaron Patterson


  • Pynfc provides a pythonic interface for the libnfc library, allowing access to ISO-14443a and similar RFID/NFC cards supported by libnfc. This interface is written by Mike Auty.
  • nfcpy is a Python module to read/write NFC tags or communicate with another NFC device, written by Stephen Tiedemann. It is not based on libnfc and offers a support for Sony PN533-based readers such as RC-S330 or RC-S360.


  • touchatag-processing is a library for Processing with libnfc on the Windows platform, written by Augusto Esteves.

  • mfocuino is a firmware to build your own libnfc compatible NFC Reader with an Arduino and the NFC shield, by Christophe Duvernois
  • nfcdoorlock is a simple NFC based door lock using distributable certificates and signing, by Anthony Ito (伊藤アントニー)
  • minikrebs and its NFC-Gate which polls the attached NFC-connector for new cards and uses the UID of the card for trying to either log in or log out the user at the shack-infrastructure.
  • Ctrl-O is an open-source Access Control System with a cloud backend.
  • SmartTool is an open source project that delivers NFC, WiFi, BT connectivity in a very compact form factor that enables it to be fitted in 2 modules wall sockets.
