Alright, I’ve held my tongue long enough.
What is it with SparkFun and Eagle? I really feel that SparkFun needs to drop its Eagle ‘support’ and start supporting KiCAD. As a site that prides itself on open source materials, I could never understand why everything is designed using freemium software when there is a better, as easy to use, open source alternative. On the surface, KiCAD is as easy to use as Eagle. However you can dive into the deep end and get functionality that almost rivals that of something like Altium Designer. Learning Eagle is a dead end. The work flow that Eagle implements doesn’t translate well to other EDAs and you’re severely limited with the free version of Eagle.
SparkFun’s New Years resolution should be to kick Eagle to the curb…
No public wish lists :(
