  • InfluxDB - Collect and Analyze Billions of Data Points in Real Time
  • SonarQube - Static code analysis for 29 languages.
  • Mergify - Updating dependencies is time-consuming.
  • cue

    The home of the CUE language! Validate and define text-based and dynamic configuration

  • I have done something similar, and have also successfully used the outputs with JLCPCB's assembly service, if you want something similar that's been tested and works:

  • InfluxDB

    Collect and Analyze Billions of Data Points in Real Time. Manage all types of time series data in a single, purpose-built database. Run at any scale in any environment in the cloud, on-premises, or at the edge.

  • kicad-makefile

    A Makefile for KiCad 7.0+ projects. It leverages the new `kicad-cli` command included in 7.0 to generate output data for distribution and production.

    I found KiBot configuration a bit overwhelming and with the addition of the ‘kicad-cli’ tool in KiCad 7 made a Makefile based runner:

    It allows for a build that is closer to the vanilla KiCad GUI experience and can be built locally with the normal install using ‘make’ - something I wanted.
