Upverter was gaining traction but there were regressions after they were acquired.

Allspice may be a solution.

Many semiconductor manufacturers publish application notes with partial to full designs. Linear Technology app notes were probably the best example of this.

The closest I know of are https://hackaday.io/ and https://osf.io/

Electronics design is too broad for such thing.

So it divided to at least three directions:

1. cases and integrated systems, like smart home - thingiverse and other creators sites.

2. boards - electronics sites, in many cases connected to hobby magazines, or hobby clubs. And designs stored in ordinary libraries in paper.

3. hdl - opencores, and few others. Only direction, from 3, near perfectly suited for git format.

AllSpice might be what you're looking for?

Yes, github.

I use github for embedded projects: code, schematics, PCB artwork, drawings, etc. Haven't found it limiting in any way.

What else are you looking for?

That would probably just be GitHub and an HDL https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hardware_description_language
