If you have ever used kicad, you’ve had a moment where there isn’t a ready-made symbol for your IC. It’s quick to make one with that web tool but what what if the chip is over 100 pins?
I used to use a very dirty hack with bash and xdotool, but the amount of hackery here was a bit too big, so I decided to make a better solution. Lots of thanks fly out to the guys, who made xil2kc, a tool that creates eeschema symbols out of .pkg files that ISE can create. Unfortunately for me they picke python, my least favourite programming language. Anyway, the code was there, so I made a different util based on their library. I thought all the things over and came with a format that can be easily used.
