Is there a way to download ALL available eagle-libraries in a batch, as
an archive or such?
This would be very helpful....

Hi sglux,

I hope you're doing well. Unfortunately, there are too many different
sources of libraries for this to be feasible. Some sources have
aggregated their libraries like adafruit, sparkfun, microbuilder,
newark, etc.

But there is not comprehensive storage location for libraries. Although
it's an interesting idea.

Best Regards,
Jorge Garcia

I decided to download several of the libraries using a script on my
Linux machine. The neat thing is that this script is handy for keeping
the libraries updated. The script downloads the libraries from Element14
one at a time, unzips them, and moves the library files to my Eagle
library folder:

wget -N
http://www.element14.com/community/servlet/JiveServlet/download/1491946873- 101100/Spansion.zip
( http://www.element14.com/community/servlet/JiveServlet/download/64291-1-101 100/Spansion.zip)
wget -N
http://www.element14.com/community/servlet/JiveServlet/download/1491946873- 97302/Taiwan+Semiconductor_Library.zip
( http://www.element14.com/community/servlet/JiveServlet/download/64273-1-973 02/Taiwan+Semiconductor_Library.zip)
(repeat for all the libraries you need to download)

find . -name \*\.zip -exec unzip -o "{}" \;
find . -name \*\.lbr -exec mv -u {} "${EAGLE_LBR_DIR}" \;

where EAGLE_LBR_DIR is the path to my Eagle libraries.

Hello Jorge,
indeed I thought it is a straight forward idea. Cadsoft did provide
direct download since decades.
Is there some hope to have that issue forwarded to element14 staff?
Regards, Stefan
