Plugin API for pattern editor


#1

Hello!
I made a footprint generator that produces .pretty folders populated with footprint .kicad_mod files. The current version is written on object PHP (7), and could be easily rewritten in C++, and integrated to the footprint editor if I can have the API. Does anyone have some pointers about a possible plugin development tutorial?
Thanks,
Pascal

There is a Python API for footprint wizards, is that what you are referring to? There is some documentation at https://github.com/KiCad/Footprint_Wizards/wiki Be aware that the API has changed between v4.0.x and nightly builds.

Examples of latest wizard scripts can be found at https://github.com/KiCad/kicad-source-mirror/tree/master/pcbnew/python/plugins

I guess there is an underlying C++ API but I don’t know if it is documented anywhere.
