Parts.io Labs

Developing the most comprehensive component search in the world. Join in the quest to find perfect parts!

Similar projects worth following
Parts.io exists to help you research and discover your next component.

But why are we on Hackaday.io??

We are looking to converse with people that are actually building things. Today, tomorrow, every day. We build because we have to. And people that are building electronics every day also know what they like in part search. We want to hear how you currently discover components and what can be done to improve.

What should you expect from joining this project? You'll hear about the latest ideas in search, get to give early feedback and we will make sure you find the parts you need for your project.

  • Insider Scoop: Registration

    We heard you.

    We were covered by Hackaday earlier this year as Parts.io was launching into early alpha stage. The resounding feedback in the comments was "Why do I have to register?"

    From there we have made strides towards opening up the site as we could. Getting to the point where we are able to make the full search experience open to the public took some time, but we heard how important it was.

    The insider scoop is that we will soon be completely opening to the public in the next few weeks.

    No registration required (though it will still be possible and beneficial to do so). Just show up and start searching. Utilize all of the features we have been pushing out into the world for the past 7 months and start finding some great new components.

    We won't be sharing this any place other than on the Parts.io Labs page, because we want to hear from all of you first. We appreciated the feedback from the Hackaday community and will continue to focus on the users that are making things and regularly searching for components. If you're not already a member of the Parts.io Labs group on Hackaday.io, we highly encourage joining (click the "Request to join this project" link).

I was wondering if there is a public API for using parts.io.. Or is it hackaday only ?

Thanks

There's a public API for the pricing and availability (the Supplyframe API: http://dev.supplyframe.com). Parts.io integrates data sources that we cannot release to the public, so the parametric data needs to stay internal for now.

What kind of stuff are you working on?

I will request access to the supply frame API.
Nothing yet but I am thinking about making a tool for KiCad with information from supplyframe(pricing, datasheet, availability, tech specs ...) together with KiCad parts(schematic symbols, footprints ...) from my repo or the public KiCad library repo.

Very nice! You should check out the stuff being done by @crashbangproto (on twitter). He is working on something similar: https://forum.kicad.info/t/kicad-bom-export-script/1018

Thank you for the link, I was looking if there is something similar available. But from what I understood it is a different application.
I got my API request approved and now I am testing it. Very easy to use, awesome !!

I just signed up. This is way better than doing it with a spreadsheet. Cool project guys. Awesome web design too!

That's great! If you have any issues with it, we have a forum over at http://community.parts.io and can respond here as well.
