Search Digi-Key from your terminal

Project description


Search Digi-Key from your terminal

Searching Digi-Key can be a pain. Here’s a list of things I do every time I search for an item:

  • Filter by “In Stock”
  • Filter by “Quantity Desired: 1”
  • Sort by price, ascending

Each of those actions takes a click and a couple seconds to load. I can automate these tasks and do most of the work from the command line.


  • Search for blue LEDs: digiglass blue led
  • Search for 470-ohm resistors in the through-hole category: digiglass -c 'through hole resistor' 470 ohm
  • Browse all resistor kits: digiglass --category 'resistor kit'

-c and --category are interchangeable. Category names support fuzzy search - you can type part of the name and the proper category will probably appear.


This is a Python 3 script, so use pip3 to install:

pip3 install digiglass


Having issues? Try clearing the app’s cache: digiglass --clear-cache
