SparkFun Electronics KiCad Libraries

This repository contains a set of KiCad libraries that match the SparkFun-Eagle-Libraries repository, as well as tools that can be used to manipulate various aspects of KiCad libraries and footprints.

SparkFun DFM specifics

The 'standard' libraries contain internal part numbers for ease of design. Some tools also exist, like the BOM generator, which are only useful with the internal part numbers.

Note: By setting the field layer to white, the numbers become invisible
