I want to create a stripboard part like the BusBoard Prototype Systems PR3U (https://www.mouser.com/ProductDetail/BusBoard-Prototype-Systems/PR3U). I suppose I could just start with the standard stripboard and resize it, etc., but that will get tidious very fast. In poking around the fritzing source code I can across the template files used by the Stripboard class (resources/templates/stripboards.xml), but it has exactly one template, for a (now basically unavailable) Radio Shack part. And it in order to make use of the stripboard template feature, one has to edit the source code and recompile (why not provide a mech. where new template file(s) can be added at runtime?).
is there any documentation on the format of this template file?
Are there plans for making it possible to add new stripboards / prototyping boards at run time?
I am thinking I might be better off, just writing a program to create a new part, but want to know if there is something i am missing.
