Long time forum follower, first time poster. Looking for a tool/script that can read and generate an image/preview of kicad symbols. If there’s a web based symbol editor, that would be even better (thought i remember seeing one from a university somewhere, but cant find it for the life of me), but baby steps… Anyway, i’m building a library / BOM management tool (Django) and would like some visual feedback when browsing the libraries. I’ll put it on github when its a little more mature, unless someone is interested in helping with development. Idea is that it would be somewhat comparable to CIS/CIP that could be used by small business/hobbyist’s for atomic part (centralized) library management.
On a similar note… is there any way to force KiCAD to refresh its symbol libraries if they’re edited from an outside tool (text editor, etc). My tool can edit the traits of component, but kicad seems reluctant to refresh a library if edited externally.
