Library management in Eagle

So after a bit of furious work in Eagle laying out the SplashTag I decided I wanted to tidy up some of the libraries we had been working with. Carl had added an unrelated device to our library to make use of its PCB footprint, but considering that was all we wanted I thought we should remove the unneeded schematic part from the library. Now as with most things in Eagle, its possible, but not always immediately obvious. So this is how to if you’re struggling too.

  • Start Eagle, and open the library with the part you wish to remove.
  • Open any “device” (Button next to the print icon on the toolbar) from the library for editing.
  • Now go to the Library menu and hit the remove option and type in the name of the device you actually wish to delete.
  • Hit ok, and yes if you’re sure. Now the device has been deleted, leaving the Package and Symbol
  • To remove the Schematic Symbol as well, open up any Symbol  and again go to the Library menu. Hit the remove option and type the Symbol name in.
  • That’s it!

The subtlety here is actually opening a part from the library first. If you try using the remove option without opening a part from the library Eagle will throw you a “not found” error.

Exciting Stuff…

Ahhh the arrival of components, always an exciting day! As much as Carl can’t wait to get writing some code, I can’t wait for the arrival of a 4inch square piece of fibreglass to solder all those bits onto and find out how well I did with the layout… Lets hope its on its way from China as we speak!

In the meantime, while I wait with anticipation I am currently working on the next couple of boards that we plan to produce, these have been on Carl and I’s list for a while now, finally making a start on them. I’m not going to say what they are just yet, but stay tuned and all will be revealed in good time
