KiCost is powered by the Kitspace PartInfo API. Partinfo hooks into paid-for 3rd party services. If you find KiCost useful please donate to the Kitspace Open Collective. If Kitspace doesn’t receive enough donations then this free service will have to be shut down.
Easy installation via pip (see on documentation folder).
Processes the BOM XML file from your KiCad schematic to create a part-cost spreadsheet by scraping the web sites of several popular distributors for price and inventory data. (You can also enter your own quantity-adjusted pricing data for specialized parts or those not found at the supported distributors.);
Processes also BOM files from Altium, Proteus, Eagle, Upverter and hand made CSVs;
The spreadsheet contains quantity-adjusted pricing from each distributor for individual parts and the total board;
Enter the number of boards to be built in a spreadsheet cell and all the pricing for the total board and individual parts is updated;
The spreadsheet also shows the current inventory on-hand for each part at each distributor;
Enter the quantity of each part that you want to purchase from each distributor and lists of part numbers and quantities will appear in formats that you can cut-and-paste directly into the website ordering page of each distributor.
