Document breadboard builds by writing Python code

In my last post I mentioned that I was using breadboarder - a Python program that eases the pain of documenting breadboard-based projects.

You write a descriptiopn of your project using a Python-based DSL - a domain-specific language.

It lets you explain what wire or component to add to the breadboard, and where to connect it.

You write code like this:

And it generates markdown and png files which render like this:

It saves hours of layout, you can build complex projects out of simple ones, and everything is under source control.

I need to improve the documentation but breadboarder is on GitHub.
