Symbol generator script?


#1

I there something similar to kicad-footprint-generator for symbols?

forum has this old post, linking to kiPart.

are any of these symbol-scripting efforts active projects at the moment?

thanks.

The kicad-library-utils repo has a symbol generator inspired by the footprint generator by @pointhi

https://github.com/KiCad/kicad-library-utils/tree/master/schlib/autogen The lib for it is in the KiCadSymbolGenerator subfolder. The connector generator makes use of it.

And there is the symgen by @bobc which is used to generate the logic symbols in the official lib: https://github.com/bobc/kicad-symgen

For MCU or high pin count component, you can try uConfig : https://github.com/Robotips/uConfig

This open source tool can extract pins from PDF datasheet and organize pins as you specify in a rule file.
