Haskell KiCad Data

Build Status

Parse and write KiCad data (currently .kicad_mod files only).

This library is tested with QuickCheck to ensure it can parse whatever it outputs. The parser is also fairly regularily checked against over 38,000 kicad_mod files currently part of monostable/kicad_footprints. The resulting output of these parsed files is then checked with KiCad scripting to make sure they are still valid.


$ cabal repl
*Data.Kicad.PcbnewExpr> let pad = parse "(pad 1 smd rect (size 1 1) (at 1 1) (layers F.Cu))"
*Data.Kicad.PcbnewExpr> pad
Right (PcbnewExprItem (PcbnewPad {padNumber = "1", padType = SMD, padShape =
Rect, itemAt = PcbnewAtT {pcbnewAtPoint = (1.0,1.0), pcbnewAtOrientation =
0.0}, itemSize = (1.0,1.0), padLayers = [FCu], padAttributes_ = []}))
*Data.Kicad.PcbnewExpr> fmap write pad
Right "(pad \"1\" smd rect (at 1 1) (size 1 1) (layers F.Cu))"
