When you suppose Pinion seems a bit acquainted, you’re in all probability remembering that we lined [Jan]’s a lot earlier PcbDraw device, which turned KiCad board information into SVG renderings however had no means so as to add labels or interactivity. Pinion is an evolution of that earlier concept, and its diagrams are capable of act as each documentation and interactive reference, with no reliance on any sort of exterior service.
