Linux NFC Capabilities

Linux is a great operating system for NFC software as it can be efficiently run on low-cost computers and has less bloat which can interfere with NFC operations. The Desktop App is the best GUI app for NFC on Linux, along with barcodes and UHF RFID. Other external low-level tools and SDKs also exist. Linux is the recommended operating system for a dedicated Desktop App system.

External Libraries and Tools

There are a small number of 3rd party libraries and tools for working with NFC on Linux.
