Electronics CAD support (Schematics & PCB layout editing)

Registered by jaseg on 2013-04-30

Currently there is no nice open source electronics CAD tool. The largest competitors are gEDA which I find awkward to use and KiCad which I find even more awkward to use. Since a schematics editor is not much more than a special-purpose flow graph editor and a PCB layout editor is in fact nothing but a somewhat crippled vector graphics editor with some special-purpose features added I think it is very promising to modify a general purpose vector graphics editor to support the few special-purpose functions additionally required by an electronics CAD tool.

I listed some related blueprints as dependencies.
