I am a developer for a simple online schematic tool.
We would like to add the ability to export from our tool into KiCad so that work done in our tool will useful as a KiCad project.
I am trying to find documentation on the KiCad format so that I can determine what format to generate to get the most value from the export. We do not have any layout information at all, just schematic net connectivity. I am not sure if our symbols or actual wiring would be transferrable either, so I’m really looking for the minimum viable approach to exporting some useful data.
The original thought was to output some type of EDIF formatted netlist, but that does not look a supported format. I see that there is a PCBNew.net format. Would that be a suitable format?
Any ideas or information will be much appreciated.
