I just wanted to announce the initial release of KiField: a utility for manipulating part fields in KiCad schematic files or libraries. KiField can extract all the component fields from a schematic or library and place them into a spreadsheet for bulk editing, after which you can insert the edited values from the spreadsheet back into the schematic or library.
KiField is usually employed in a three-step process:
- First use KiField to extract the part field labels and values from a schematic or library and place them into a CSV or XLSX spreadsheet file.
- Edit the spreadsheet file to change existing field values, add entirely new fields, or completely delete fields.
- Finally, use KiField to insert the updated field labels and values from the spreadsheet file into the schematic or library.
