Importing XML netlist (from Frizing)

Hello, I'm still feeling a lot of problem with importing libs and other schematics. Currently I'm seeing a lot of footprints (libs) for modules like a K30 CO2 sensor, or Adafruit products being shared for Fritzing. And so I face a lot of projects where people come to me with fritzing designs. I want to be able quickly switch over myself, or let them switch over to EasyEDA for better PCB building and ordering, but for now it seems we need to redo the whole process of building the schematics. Not only that, we also need to re-create all the parts (schematics libs and pcb footprint libs). This is a huge issue / wall when trying to switch over to EasyEDA for many projects! I saw a old post where they showed you could export Eagle files from Fritzing and import them on EasyEDA : [https://easyeda.com/forum/topic/Export_from_Fritzing_to_suit_EasyEDA-VTpHBTb4m][1] [1]: https://easyeda.com/forum/topic/Export_from_Fritzing_to_suit_EasyEDA-VTpHBTb4m But it seems Fritzing does not export this any longer. Instead they now export XML netlist files. But I can't find yet how to import these into EasyEDA. I got 2 main questions: 1. What is possible now? Can someone shed some light on what is possible right now? Is there a way to make export from Fritzing into EasyEDA, or make use of all the great Fritzing libs out there? Or are we just left with 2 options (1. stick to Fritzing only or 2. redo all work including building all parts yourselfs) 2. What are the plans in the future? Is there any idea or plans or new file standards coming in the future that lets you easily create libs for multiple editors? Like what is the XML netlist? Is that a new standaard they are switching over to because of problems with licensing of Eagle? I hope someone can shed some light on this, because I really would like to let people switch over to EasyEDA when they are going from Prototyping to PCB fabrication. And I know it is possible to export and import Gerber files, but I'm not looking for that as EasyEDA has much better PCB editor options in my opinion.

Hello AcE_Krystal, *What is possible now? Can someone shed some light on what is possible right now? Is there a way to make export from Fritzing into EasyEDA, or make use of all the great Fritzing libs out there? Or are we just left with 2 options (1. stick to Fritzing only or 2. redo all work including building all parts yourselfs)* EasyEDA does not support import from Fritzing.We suggest you exporting from Fritzing to Eagle format,and import those files into EasyEDA. *What are the plans in the future? Is there any idea or plans or new file standards coming in the future that lets you easily create libs for multiple editors? Like what is the XML netlist? Is that a new standaard they are switching over to because of problems with licensing of Eagle?* About xml netlist import,We'll consider your great opinion to improve our editor.thankyou!

Unfortunately, AcE_Krystal appears to be correct: according to Johnathan Cohen's reply in this post: http://fritzing.org/forum/thread/383/?page=last > When we switched to C++ back in 2008, we kept the "export to eagle" > menu item as a "to do" reminder, but the implementation never got past > the first step. We finally removed the menu item when we decided that > export to gEDA and export to Kicad would have higher priority. So, Fritzing no longer supports export to Eagle. Although EasyEDA can import Kicad schematic symbol libraries and PCB footprint modules, EasyEDA does not support Kicad netlist import. EasyEDA also does not support import of gEDA format files.

Precise, there is no eagle export function on Fritzing anymore.
