Summary Add hints on embedding QRcodes in the glossary

It would be nice to add a note in the doc on combining glossaries-extra / bib2gls with the qrcode package. To create a qrcode enabled glossary:
% required packages

% the qrcode enabled glossary style
\newglossarystyle{qrlist}% style name
   \setglossarystyle{list}% use list as base
   % % main entries :
      % expect the url to be stored in the user1 field
         \url{\glscurrentfieldvalue}% print the url in a pretty format
         \vspace{2cm}% make sure the qrcodes are not overlapping
         }{% false
To get the url into the user1 field the following can be done with bib2gls
      webpages,% entries in a webpages.bib file
    },% needed for bib2gls to recognize entries
       url=user1,% load url into the user1 field
    }, %  copy the values
with webpages.bib containing
  name={Dickimaw Books},


No mwe.tex


There are a lot of packages that can be used with glossaries-extra and bib2gls. It would unfortunately clutter up the glossaries-extra manual to have them all there as that’s intended to just cover the additional commands and features not provided by the base glossaries package.

The bib2gls manual has a chapter of examples, so it could be added there, but I think it would be more useful to add it to the gallery (which is referenced at the start of both the glossaries and glossaries-extra documentation). Would you like me to add it to the bib2gls section?
