Footprint wizard internals


#1

Is there documentation (gasp!) or a How-To on writing KiCad footprint wizards in Python? I’m specifically looking for information on v5’s support of custom pad shapes, but I’ll take what I can get.

Have you looked at @maui 's STEPUP for use with custom footprints? It integrates with FreeCad. Under the category of ‘take what you can get’. :wink:

If you look at the plugins you will find some help though it isn’t direct documentation. The FAQ link above will get you to these. I think KiCommand(?) lets you do similar? Hmm… KiCommand doesn’t seem to be on this list.

See pcbnew/python/plugins/FootprintWizardBase.py in the kicad source tree.
