Generate symbol library from inventory spreadsheet

Hello all,

I wonder if there is a software or KiCAD plugin that allows to create a symbol library of the available parts in the inventory. I have hundreds of capacitors, resistors and other passive parts in various sizes. It is very tedious to check each time which part is available and which is not.
