DigiKey Fetch Tool

DigiKey Fetch Tool helps you when working on bill of material (BOM) for your projects. This simple Python script will fetch all relevant information about a part (Manufacturer, Manufacturer Part Number etc) and allow you to paste/type that information into any application using global hotkeys. This saves a significant amount of time by removing the need to do many alt+tab and copy&paste operation to copy information from your distributor’s website.

GitHub repository:

Note that this script has two flavors; one where shortcuts only copy the information to clipboard and another one where the script actually “types” the information with your keyboard. In this video demonstration, I’m using keyboard input version.

    Hi Sasa

    Are you using the DigiKey API to achieve this functionality?

      Hi Eugene,
      You could use DigiKey API to retrieve this information.
      The example code posted on GitHub uses combination of curl and x-path to fetch and parse data.
