Haven't seen this before and wondering if anyone has familiarity with this and what their impression is.

@photo-bud I have seen fritzing mentioned, but don't really know what either does. Are they software apps?

First computer 1959. Retired from my own computer company 2004.
Hardware - Expert in 1401, and 360, fairly knowledge in PC plus numerous MPU's and MCU's
Major Languages - Machine language, 360 Macro Assembler, Intel Assembler, PL/I and PL1, Pascal, Basic, C plus numerous job control and scripting languages.
Sure you can learn to be a programmer, it will take the same amount of time for me to learn to be a Doctor.

They allow you to create breadboard diagrams of circuits.

For example (this is from Cirkit).

This is from Fritzing.

Thanks for the info on Cirkit Designer.  I've just downloaded it. It looks useful.  I used to use Fritzing but a couple of year ago it went wobbly on my mac and at that time it was not being supported anymore.  I did read something about some folks picking up the support, but if this Cirkit Designer proves good I may not bother with Fritzing.

@byron I downloaded it too, now to see what this is all about. Seems I still need to learn even more stuff.

Indeed... looks pretty good in  initial stages!

@frogandtoad Have you tried adding code? I clicked to try but couldn't think of anything for the resistor I clicked and now the tiny code box won't go away. Minor glitch, but overall I look forward to being able to produce better diagrams.

I downloaded it and I am playing around with it.

It seems to have potential, with prospects for future developments.

It can be a bit imprecise when connecting cables and I have yet to find a 2 pole toggle switch in the icons library.
