Fritzing is an open-source hardware initiative that makes electronics accessible as a creative material for anyone.



The Fritzing download site (https://fritzing.org/download/) appears to need a donation. They claim "thousands for hours are required each year to keep up development", but it hasn't be updated since June 2, 2016.

Here's another way to download:

host$ VERS=0.9.3b
host$ wget http://fritzing.org/download/$VERS/linux-64bit/fritzing-$VERS.linux.AMD64.tar.bz2
host$ tar xvjf fritzing-$VERS.linux.AMD64.tar.bz2

Before running it, get the Adafruit library (https://learn.adafruit.com/using-the-adafruit-library-with-fritzing)

host$ wget https://github.com/adafruit/Fritzing-Library/archive/master.zip
host$ unzip master

Now, open Fritzing cd fritzing-$VERS.linux.AMD64 ./Fritzing

Follow Adafruit instructions to import the library: https://learn.adafruit.com/using-the-adafruit-library-with-fritzing
