If someone wants to automate tasks with scripting in the latest stable KiCad, the only option (as far as I know) is to use the python library “pcbnew” and execute the scripts in the scripting console in the PCB layout editor.
I just saw a video on youtube with Jon Evans talking about a newly developed python API that will be part of KiCad 6. This sounds really great.
My question is: Is it possible to try out the new python API by installing the KiCad nightly build?
I would like to learn how to automate things in KiCad and would rather learn about the new API rather than learning about the old pcbnew lib.
