The Dangerous Prototypes Eagle parts library has most of the parts used in our projects. It’s got just about everything we use on a daily basis. We keep it in SVN so everyone has the latest version.
Eagle stores footprints in a binary file, so SVN can’t merge differences if two people make changes at the same time. Lately we’ve lost a bunch of parts from conflicting updates.
To end the agony of lost parts, Sjaak whipped up a library export program. It exports all the parts in an Eagle library to individual script files. These scripts are text files that can be committed to SVN without fear of overwriting someone’s updates. A second program assembles the individual parts back into a library.
