Read, modify, and create Cadsoft EAGLE files

Project description

A Python package for creating, modifying, and writing Cadsoft EAGLE files


For writing EAGLE files, the non-standard Python package lxml is required:

This can be installed using pip:

pip install lxml

If lxml is not available (for example, with IronPython), it is still possible to read EAGLE files, but it is not possible to write EAGLE files.


To install, use pip:

pip install eaglepy

The source code (with examples) is available from the GitHub repository:

The package can be installed from the source directory by invoking

python install

from the source directory.

Basic Usage

As a basic example, the following will create (and save) an empty schematic:

from eaglepy import default_layers, eagle

schematic_path = 'schematic.sch'

schematic = eagle.Schematic(sheets = [eagle.Sheet()])

drawing = eagle.Drawing(grid = eagle.Grid(),
        layers = default_layers.get_layers(),
        document = schematic)

e = eagle.Eagle(drawing)

There are a number of example modules provided in the GitHub repository.
