Fritzing Library

Adafruit parts, components, breakouts, etc...in Fritzable format!

Overview:

The Adafruit Fritzing Library is a collection of parts that can be used in the Fritzing software. It is released under the CC Attribution Share-Alike license. The library contains various parts, including the Adafruit Feather and Adafruit Raspberry Pi.

To use the library, users can download the Adafruit.fzbz, Adafruit_Feather.fzbz, or Adafruit_Raspberry_Pi.fzbz files and open them in Fritzing. The library can also be cloned from GitHub or downloaded as a zip file. Individual parts files are located in the "parts" folder. They are in the form of .FZPZ files, which are standard .ZIP files that can be opened with a standard archive utility like 7-Zip.

Some things to note when using the library: for non-0.1" parts and Arduino Shield parts, users must turn off 'align to grid' in the Breadboard view. Additionally, older parts may not render correctly in newer versions of Fritzing, so it is recommended to use Fritzing v0.7.5 for those parts.

Please be aware that while the library is provided for educational purposes, the correctness of the parts is not guaranteed. Adafruit does not accept unsolicited Fritzing parts for inclusion in the library.

Features:

  • Library of parts for Fritzing
  • Released under CC Attribution Share-Alike license
  • Includes parts such as Adafruit Feather and Adafruit Raspberry Pi
  • Can be downloaded as a zip file or cloned from GitHub
  • Individual parts files in the "parts" folder
  • Parts files are in the form of .FZPZ files, which are standard .ZIP files
  • Non-0.1" parts and Arduino Shield parts require turning off 'align to grid' in Breadboard view
  • Older parts may not render correctly in newer versions of Fritzing, recommended to use v0.7.5

Installation:

To install the Adafruit Fritzing Library, follow these steps:

  1. Download the library by either cloning from GitHub or clicking on the download button at https://github.com/adafruit/Fritzing-Library/archive/master.zip.
  2. Extract the downloaded zip file to a desired location.
  3. Launch Fritzing and go to File > Open. Select the AdaFruit.fzbz, Adafruit_Feather.fzbz, or Adafruit_Raspberry_Pi.fzbz file that was downloaded.
  4. To make the library a permanent resident in the Fritzing parts palette, use the drop-down menu in the palette window and choose "Save Bin".
  5. Individual parts files can be found in the "parts" folder of the extracted library. Each part is in the form of an .FZPZ file, which can be opened with a standard archive utility like 7-Zip.

Please note that for non-0.1" parts and Arduino Shield parts, the 'align to grid' option must be turned off in the Breadboard view for proper alignment with the Arduino.

Summary:

The Adafruit Fritzing Library provides a collection of parts that can be used in the Fritzing software. It offers an easy way to access various components, including the Adafruit Feather and Adafruit Raspberry Pi. The library is released under a CC Attribution Share-Alike license and can be installed by downloading the appropriate files and opening them in Fritzing. However, it's important to note that older parts may not render correctly in newer versions of Fritzing, and correctness of the parts is not guaranteed.
