I started fooling around with Plugin’s and used the “Simple_Example” posted on the Kicad-source-mirror.
The plugin Correctly shows up in the Tools>External Plugins field.
Selecting it to run produces no problems.
However, the plugin is supposed to produce a “Hello World” but I see nothing (not at bottom of Window or anywhere…)
Where is it going be be displayed???
Here’s the snippet of code (the .py is placed in only one plugin Dir location):
self.name = “Plugin Name as shown in Pcbnew: Tools->External Plugins”
self.category = “A descriptive category name”
self.description = “A description of the plugin and what it does”
# The entry function of the plugin that is executed on user action
SimplePlugin().register() # Instantiate and register to Pcbnew
