Re: KiCad file visualiser - status update



all is done in PHP. What needs to be done is display text fields, add zooming and some bugfixes.

After it is done, the source will be available under some free license.
However I can provide it to you, but it is quite uncommented and nothing much to be proud of ;-)

Hi Milan,

Looks like it works nicely. Are you sharing the source? Is it all done
in PHP?

I am working on a site to share Kicad libraries. It is written in Python
using Django.
I'll share it soon, when it is in a demo-able state.

For the visualization I was thinking about using the new scripting
support and use Kicad itself. I got as far as parsing the contents of
the .mod files, getting an index etc. It should be possible however, to
make a wxPython graphics context and then take advantage of the built-in
functions to draw on it and then export to an image file. Not quite sure
where to start on that one though as the functions and object I need
aren't properly wrapped with SWIG yet.

What are your future plans with the work you are doing now. Say once you
have zoomable SVGs?

All the best,
