Altium schematic reader
This is a Python command-line script that can parse Altium schematic (*.SchDoc) files, convert them to SVG images, or display them in a window. It is incomplete and there are probably many schematic elements and settings that it does not (yet) understand.
The schematic file format has been documented somewhat in format.md.

- Python 3, from https://www.python.org/
- The OleFileIO library. Version 2.4+ of the Pillow fork, from http://python-pillow.github.io/, is recommended. If a schematic contains bitmap images, Pillow is also needed to display the schematic in a window. You can also use version 0.30 of the OleFileIO_PL fork, from http://www.decalage.info/python/olefileio, if Pillow is not needed.
- TK (Only required to display schematics in a window)
Conversion to SVG:
python3 altium.py schematic.SchDoc > output.svg
Display in a window:
python3 altium.py --renderer tk schematic.SchDoc
