Hi Ricardo,
Your software sounds interesting!  I don't know of any impediment (at least from Chimera’s side) to making a connector between Ligplot+ and Chimera and sharing it with others.

How to cite Chimera in publications and posters is described here:

However, if you just want to know what to put on your website with the software:
Several other groups have developed Chimera plugins or programs that write files for input to Chimera.  They each have some website or github location for using or downloading their own software that also includes
(a) a description of their software and how it works with Chimera, and 
(b) a link to the Chimera website: <http://www.rbvi.ucsf.edu/chimera/index.html>

So if you are thinking about what to put on your website with your software, I believe (a) and (b) above would be fine.

We have a list of Chimera-related software on the Chimera website:

I can add your program to this list if you want.  If so, just e-mail me the URL of your website from which the program can be downloaded.
Best regards,

> Dear sirs,
> I made a little academic software, that I intend to publish in GPL license, that exports LigPLot+ .drw files into two files:
> 1 Python file and 1 file to be read on PseudoBond reader. THis files can depict a LigPlot+ diagram in Chimera.
> I would like to ask your help to help me correctly cite the Chimera trademark and rights.
> I would also like to know if there is any impediment in building software that exports from LiPlot + to Chimera
> I appreciate it in advance.
