    A simulator for digital circuits.

    Digital vs Logisim opinions
    Almost everyone thinks Digital is a great alternative to Logisim.

    Its interface and concepts are close to Logisim's, so one can directly start to use it. It can also support much faster simulation than what Logisim offers.

    The interface is similar to Logisim, with some improvements. It also handles oscillation better than Logisim.

    Digital was built as a successor to Logisim, and so their features are very comparable; in many ways it has already exceeded it's predecessor.

    TkGate vs Logisim opinions
    pros, cons and recent comments

    The project has been picked up again, and has great support for packing subcircuits into the same file. Interface feels outdated, but overall it has an excellent number of features.
