Re: Online library sharing idea


It's good that you mentioned kicadcloud.com, I hadn't spotted that
yet. I did receive email from Andrew @ circuithub and I asked some
questions about API and other details. There may be potential to
collaborate with them on the API.

I'm putting together a write up of the problem, the possible
online/cloud (although I really think that term is over used) solution
and some implementation ideas. I'll try to follow up here in a few
days once I have something that is enough to be beyond just some guy
sending email to the kicad developers list. My initial email was to
see if anyone else might be on board with the idea and to start to
gather some details before doing all of that extra work.
