I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. oEmbed Endpoint

    An oEmbed endpoint would be nice (http://www.oembed.com/). It could also save some people the trouble of scraping the page for OpenGraph metadata, saving everyone some bandwidth.

    Aside: I really enjoy this service and hope more people take to using it. Thanks.

    • Units issue with eagle2kicad.ulp

      When using eagle2kicad.ulp to convert a schematic made with Eagle 2.6.4 for use with Kicad build 2013-07-14, I had to change the value of g_Fact from 254 to (254 * 32). Before I did that, the resulting Kicad schematic was much too large for the page, and the component pins did not mesh with the component bodies.

      • include support for gEDA

        I note your comment here:

        http://www.circuitbee.com/about

        "Currently we only support KiCad schematics since we couldn't find good documentation on the file formats used by other software. We intend to expand to other popular schematic capture software ... "

        gEDA file formats are well documented:

              • Fix zoom buttons on iOS devices

                The zoom slider works but the zoom buttons do not seem to work with an iPad in fullscreen mode.

                Drag-pan works; pinch-zoom would be nice but might not be worth the development time if there isn't a cross platform way to do this.

                  • Suggested Libraries

                    When I add a new circuit, it would be nice if it could suggest libraries based on the parts I've used. Nothing more complex than "The parts you've used appear in these libraries."

                    • Specificy zoom location in embedded code

                      I want to embedd a larger circuit in my blog, but want to refer to seperate parts of it. Instead of creating multiple circuits, each identical with different thumbnails, it would be better to allow the embed code to specify the zoom? Eg the embeddable code is dynamic based on the current zoom. then all my different embeded circuits can link ot the same circuit on circuit bee.

                        This is definitely planned, and soon. We will improve the embed code block to allow you to set the position and zoom level.

                        We are also considering implementing a little bit of JavaScript you can include into your page that will allow you to markup links within your page content that will navigate the embedded schematic to a specific location/zoom/component.

                        This should solve all the issues you have listed here.

                        Thanks for the suggestions!

                        • Versions of Circuits

                          I don't know if that is a good idea, but I would find it great to have a system where I can put multiple versions of a circuit, because sometimes there are small mistakes. So it would be good, if there is a slider which you can move to browse old versions.

                            Hi Leo,

                            Yes this is definitely planned. We just recently added support to upload new versions of a schematic. We just need to build an interface to allow you to browse through older versions of the schematic as well.

                            This is possibly going to be a pro feature, though we’re not yet sure.

                            Please let us know what you think.

                          • Add a Parts list

                            Add a table, maybe to the right of the circuit with the part numbers and quantity. Hovering might give you a more detailed description of the part. You might use an icon for a link to a free or paid ad, for where you could purchase the part or a kit. Some people might promote their circuit by offering a one stop shop for the parts, which might include a circuit board. You might make money by letting the big boys like Digikey, Mouser, jameco, Newark, Allied... buy ad space for the parts they carry.

                              Hey Boley,

                              Parts lists are definitely a good idea, if/when we implement board support it will be even more useful still.

                              Partnerships with parts suppliers is a direction we may head in if people think its useful

                              Thanks for the input!

                            • put in a killer rating system!!

                              I think that if you put a way for us to see and sort the ratings of each schematic it would help us to find some of the better designs!

                                What you're doing is FANTASTIC, and NEEDED in the hacker community, and quite simply, YOU GUYS ROCK!

                                However, a schematic alone does not a working project make. Source code, notes, PCB layout, etc. are all important. I realize you're not (yet, anyway) trying to be all things to all people, but at the least I think that source code and a detailed description should be part of uploads. While I think your technology is GREAT, even the few circuits uploaded so far are minimally useful without the collateral information.

                                  This will greatly increase our hosting costs, but we can certainly see the utility for users.

                                  We would like to implement this, but since this is all out of our own pocket at the moment we are hesitating.

                                  Please could you let us know roughly how large the files you would like to attach are, so we can make more informed educated guesses about possible costs.

                                      We had wondered if the community we were targetting with this project were OpenID users or not. I guess this answers our question, when we get a chance we will have to implement this.

                                      If you think this is a big deal for you please vote so we know how important this feature is to you.

                                    • PDF and KiCAD download

                                      Just add feature that anybody can download circuit in PDF or KiCAD format.

                                        KiCAD download is definitely coming, it will be available as a download link shown in the circuit view page. If people would like this button to appear within the viewer please let us know in this thread.

                                        PDF download may come at a later date.

                                      • API

                                        An API so that you can upload straight from a designer.

                                        • Improve performance

                                          Tried circuibee in both Firefox 5.0 and Chrome 14 on Ubuntu 11.04.
                                          Performance is terrible. In Chrome, panning the circuit doesn't properly erase the last frame, resulting in muck. Very slow on FF5.0
