Re: Tools for editing/creating UI elements in KiCad?


Holy smokes, that is massively cool and way better than anything I would've come up with.

Thank you for making this and telling me about it!

    Your hand assembly assistant sounds exactly like what my plugin

        Hi Folks,

        Reviving some conversation that's happened over the
        years...what are the
        favored tools for editing and/or creating the wxWidgets UI
        elements for
        KiCad?  Hopefully not "vi"...

        On the one hand, I suppose I could always just go my own way
        with my own
        fork, but I'd like to wind up with something possibly
        when I'm done (the current idea is creating a hand-assembly
        assistant --
        a simple UI that will select/highlight parts in pcbnew to help
        me get my
        eyes on the right spot on the real board, and let me check off
        the parts
        as I place them, etc).

        I found some discussion surrounding wxFormBuilder from 2008,
        and I know
        that CMake can generate project files for CodeLite, which
        wxFormBuilder integration... so is that the recommended path?
