LibEagle Code Climate

LibEagle is a library for Cadsoft Eagle PCB Design Software. Eagle uses xml based files. This library implements Eagle xml files and converts it to Objects and reverse.

Requirements:

Installation:

Bundler:

gem 'libeagle'	

Rubygems:

$ gem install libeagle

Usage:

The usage is really simple first you include gem in your file:

require "libeagle"

Parsing:

Parsing eagle files (schematic, board or library) or block of eagle elements (packages, devices, symbols and etc.) you have two options parse from file or string:

eagle = LibEagle::Parser.parseFile(file_name)
 => #<LibEagle::Eagle:0x007fd5ca956738>

or string:

eagle = LibEagle::Parser.parseXML("…")
 => #<LibEagle::Eagle:0x007fd5ca956738>

Hand Crafting:

To Create eagle files with hands or dynamically. Just use as simple objects:

eagle = LibEagle::Eagle.new
# Create a drawing object
eagle.object_drawing = LibEagle::Drawing.new

Setting attributes

eagle.attribute_version = "6.0"

Setting object

eagle.object_drawing = LibEagle::Drawing.new

XML Saving:

After creating, parsing, editing if you want to save file use .saveXML will generate xml code of that object:

eagle = LibEagle::Eagle.new
eagle.attribute_version = "6.0"
eagle.saveXML
 => "<?xml version=\"1.0\" encoding=\"utf-8\"?>\n<!DOCTYPE eagle SYSTEM \"eagle.dtd\">\n<eagle version=\"6.0\">\n</eagle>\n"
