I was using fritzing for a week before I had to bail because I needed a real professional schematic. Now I have to convert 10+ hrs of work into KiCad, but I think it's a worthy endeavor to learn how to use a good program like KiCad. So far seems quite nice.
Fritzing I will continue to use in the future whenever I make an "instructables" or whatnot. The visual aspects of the breadboarding view are relatively great. And, maybe one day they will mature the program a bit more, it's still pretty young but quickly getting improved. An ideal world would have a mix between kicad and fritzing, imo
. Fritzing was much more intuitive than eagle, and kicad seems something somewhat in between [I've needed a tutorial to get up to speed but it's not like eagle = frustration].
New to endless-sphere? Notice a lot of signatures recommending Ebike.ca? That's because it's the best place for a quality and manageable, (but still 'real'), first build. Justin is a solid supporter of electric bike development, and a good source of equipment.
My hat off a thousand times to the green people that effectively run this forum. The ES Mods are superb.
