'[EE] Hints for creating eagle parts'

Obviously my request for Eagle PIC18Fx parts was not interesting &
exciting enough to cause the torrent of replies that I had hoped would
fill my inbox with useful information.

So I have another more general question:

Is there a documented list of 'best practices' for the creation of Eagle
library parts? Or even rough howto's showing what other people have
done?
Is there a 'Library manager' available that makes managing eagle
libraries a nightmare - I have read that it is expected that scripts
will be written by the end user, this seems to be a complicated &
difficult way to go about it.

On the plus side the limited time I have spent with Eagle has left me
really impressed, its quick & easy to use & runs flawlessly on both
windows & better still linux.

Thanks

Antony Wuth

Better library management is promised for v. 4.1.

Yes, there is a standard for how you do this. I believe that there is
a README somewhere about it, or maybe it's discussed in the manual.

A lot of the standards have to do with which layers you use and how
you use them.

There are several library manager scripts available for download at
the cadsoft site. They let you move, copy, and rename parts between
libraries. The new version of Eagle (now in beta) comes with an
integral library manager.

Yes, I find it quite stable under Linux.
