#47268 assigned request

KiCad: a request for a software package for designing PCBs

Reported by: mojca (Mojca Miklavec) Owned by: g5pw (Aljaž Srebrnič)
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: ports Version:
Keywords: Cc: jyrkiwahlstedt
Port: KiCad wxPython


It would be nice to ship KiCad as a MacPorts package, together with their patches for wxWidgets/wxPython. See:

(I might look into this one day when I have spare time, but other contributors are welcome. I co-maintain wxWidgets/wxPython, so I would have to look into those patches anyway.)

I have a port ready, I just notice a small issue with python site-packages placement when enabling scripting. By default, it copies wxPython in its Frameworks folder, probably to maintain portability of the app bundle. Since it's my understanding that there is no guarantee that the macports apps will be portable, I'd delete che extra wxPython copy and move the bindings in the main site-packages directory. I'll commit as soon as it's ready, and will add mojca as co-maintainer.

Waiting on the 4.0.0 official release. As soon as the 4.0.0 is released I'll commit the port.

Are you willing to share the code, so that others could test as well?

comment:4 Changed 5 years ago by mojca (Mojca Miklavec)

KiCad 4.0.1 is out. Are you ready to commit the port? Do you need any special patches in wxWidgets?

I opened #50701 and will need some help figuring out what to do with the patches.

I would be grateful if Aljaž would finish this, I'm sure he has it nearly ready. I assigned the ticket to him just to remind him again.

Heh, thanks for the polite reminder. I might upload the version I have as-is.
