Open/editable component library files

#1 Post by electrowiz » 04 May 2021, 11:06

Currently the component libraries are binary files. I would like to suggest a change that makes them somewhat human readable so that changes can be easily tracked using version control. I'm thinking a JSON file would be idea for this, but other options would work too. Additionally, it would allow for easily importing or building new libraries from python scripts for example. Imagine for instance being able to build a library from a digikey or mouser cart.

You can export DipTrace libraries to ASCII format for version control. In addition, we plan to add export to XML format.
