New Web Editor Features

January 5, 2020

The Web Editor is regularly updated with new features and improvements. Here are a few of the new features that have been added recently.

Copy and Paste

Cut, copy and paste components and layers between circuits using the keyboard shortcuts Ctrl+X, Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V.

Copy and paste

Resistor, Inductor and Capacitor Improvements

These components can now display both their text and value properties at the same time.

Circuit Netlists

April 3, 2019

Circuits created using the Web Editor can now be viewed or exported as a circuit netlist.

Netists describe how components in a circuit are connected together, and are commonly used for circuit analysis, simulation and PCB design.

The circuit details page also shows a rendered view of the circuit with each of the netlist nodes marked on the circuit visually.

Netlist nodes

The above circuit is represented by the following netlist:

V1 1 0 5
R2 2 0 220
R3 1 2 220

Visual Studio Code Extension

May 7, 2018

Build custom components in Visual Studio Code with the new VS Code extension.

As an additional option to using componenteditor.com, you can now use Visual Studio Code to create and edit custom components.

The extension is currently available as an early preview. It provides the following features:

  1. Show component syntax errors in the VS Code editor
  2. Render a preview that can be viewed in VS Code

Circuit Simulation

April 7, 2018

Simulate your circuits using the new simulation functionality in the web editor.

Simulate button

After clicking the simulate button, you will be presented with a snapshot of the simulated version of your circuit. This displays the voltages at all of the connection points in your circuit, and any components with dynamic behaviour will be rendered appropriately. For example, the Lamp will be lit if there is a voltage difference across it, and the 7 Segment Display will illuminate to show the input number.

Please be aware that this is a preview service and currently only supports a limited number of components. You might also experience some circuits that cannot be simulated while we are still working on improving this new feature.

Below is a copy of the simulation output from the Simulation Demo circuit:
