+eeshow - Eeschema schematics renderer and viewer
+Eeshow renders schematics made by KiCad Eeschema to FIG, PDF, or PNG,
+and generates graphical differences between different versions of
+schematics sheets. It can work in plain files but it can also
+retrieve design files directly from a git repository. Furthermore,
+eeshow has an interactive mode for viewing schematics and differences.
