I was just about to download KiCad (Windows) and noticed it was 470 megabyte download.
Why on earth is it so big? It’s probably including 10,000 things I don’t need. Wouldn’t it be a nifty idea to not force the user to download things they will never use, and instead include a “package manager” that reaches out to github to download additional packages when they need it? In contrast, the 64 bit Eagle windows download is 87 megabytes, and installs to 407 megabytes. Similar problem I’m sure, excessive libraries normal people don’t use often.
Just a thought. Feel sorry for people not on high bandwidth connections.
