I am just trying to make a damn footprint in Kicad. How do I create a local library for footprints and schematics for the new .pretty github version of Kicad? Do I have to create a Github repo in order to make footprints?
I just updated my Kicad version to a May build, and found that Kicad switched over to having all of their footprints be in a github repo, I think that is awesome for collaborating. I think that is awful for first time users, because the issue I am having I would only imagine would turn any new user away from Kicad. I designed a good number of PCBs in Altium, then I no longer had access through my college. So I went to Kicad, but it is frustrating things like these that make me want to just dish out the $1000 for eagle.
Is Kicad mainly written in C++ and python? I would learn to program those languages just to help fix Kicad, I really believe in open source tools, but Kicad really needs some help.
