Update: I was in touch with JLC again and the promised to come up with a solution (public API as far as I can tell) that will allow tools like this to use their parts library directly 🥳

Bt they couldn’t give me a deadline when they finish this. Anyway, nice that the move in this direction 😄

🥳 Partial success!

JLC added the CSV downlaod link to my account (I see it where it was when logged in). That means I can manually download the file and generate the parts.db from it.

I think its not possible to automate this at this point because of recaptcha etc. but I sent a request to them and asked for a way to allow me to download it automated once per day.

Maybe they agree and give me some kind of token based access to the resource. If thats the case I’l build a small web service that fetchs the CSV once per day and builds the from it. That way we can leave the plugin in the current state and download the zipped parts.db instead of the CSV.
