I’m seeing instances where people are re-developing utilities that already exist for KiCad. For example, how many BOM tools do we have, now? Also, designers are not aware of all the utilities that exist to make their jobs easier.
To partially remedy this, I created a Github repo that lists KiCad utilities from 3rd parties (i.e., those not working directly with the KiCad source code). If you’ve created a utility, then you can submit it to the list as a pull request.
For those who are freaking out about using Github for this, here’s a page that describes how to submit to the list. If you’re smart enough to create a useful KiCad utility, then you should be able to figure out how to submit a pull request. It can all be done on the Github site; you don’t need to install or use git.
Hopefully, this will cut down on repetition, allow us to build on existing work, and expose these tools to a wider audience.
