SVG diagram creation from Python code - pinout provides an easy method of creating pinout diagrams for electronic hardware.

Example diagram created from pinout.

Please visit pinout.readthedocs.io for the full quick start tutorial and detailed documentation on all options provided by the pinout package.

Quick start

pinout can be easily installed with pip and provides some sample files that demonstrate key features.

Install

Using a virtual environment is recommended; Start by installing the pinout package. Either clone this repo and pip install it or install from PyPi:

pip install pinout

# Or upgrade to the latest version
pip install --upgrade pinout

Duplicate sample files

A normal pinout diagram will include a hardware image, stylesheet, data file, and a Python script. Sample files are included with the package and can be duplicated for your use. Open a command line (with enabled virtual environment if you are using one) in the location you plan to work and enter the following:

py -m pinout.manager --duplicate quick_start

# expected output:
# >>> data.py duplicated.
# >>> hardware.png duplicated.
# >>> pinout_diagram.py duplicated.
# >>> styles.css duplicated.

Once you have these file a finished diagram can be generated from a command line py -m pinout.manager --export pinout_diagram diagram.svg. An SVG file is created and can be conveniently view in a browser.
