eagexp can export eagle partlist or image (2D/3D) of schematic or board.

Links:
Features:
  • written in python
  • it can be used as library or as a command line program
  • background processing (only if Xephyr, Xvfb and pyvirtualdisplay are installed)
  • timeout
  • 3D image export using Eagle3D and povray
  • calculate airwires
Known problems:
  • slow: eagle is opened and closed for each export
  • high DPI does not work (memory problem?)
  • Python 3 is not supported
  • export can be blocked by eagle -> timeout
  • 3D image export has a lot of options which are not supported

Basic usage

>>> from eagexp import image, partlist
>>> brd='~/.eagle/projects/examples/singlesided/singlesided.brd'
>>> image.export_image(brd, 'brd.png', resolution=600)
>>> print partlist.raw_partlist(brd)

How it works

  1. start Xvfb headless X server using pyvirtualdisplay
  2. redirect eagle display to Xvfb server by setting $DISPLAY variable.
  3. start eagle with EXPORT and QUIT commands
