Openpilot Community is creating open source tools and free support for Openpilot.

My name is Joshua, better known as jfrux in the community.  I'm currently the primary contributor to the open source efforts (known as Openpilot Community) which is setting out to build tools and documentation for Openpilot software & hardware that is effective at helping people get started as quickly and as painlessly as possible with getting their cars to enable advanced driving assistive technologies they wouldn't normally get from their stock vehicles.

Currently the community suffers from lack of documentation, and software tools needed to easily help people.

I'm currently operating arguably one of the most useful websites available today in helping people understand the current state of Openpilot compatibility and is a rapidly growing collective of learning on the subject as well.
https://opc.ai/

Current operating costs are modestly limited to $50-$70 / month depending on scale and traffic requirements but I'd like to double that budget and improve the overall experience by allowing it to scale higher.

In addition to solely maintaining the codebases related to opc.ai, I'm currently working 20+ hours per week of my personal time to building a new tool known as Workbench which is set to significantly improve the on-boarding experience for new users, basic users and existing users / advanced users alike.

I also write guides for Openpilot on my Medium profile at https://medium.com/@jfrux which is always growing more and more in popularity by the day.

The goal is to fill the gap between the user and running the software / hardware properly and safely.  It doesn't take much to help us achieve this, we just need to keep it all going.

Goals
82% complete
This is our goal for early- to mid-2019 and beyond.

We're now making due and we've upgraded our opc.ai servers to be faster and more lively.  We've released the first version of Workbench v0.1.1 and we're now on the path to Workbench v0.2.

If we can reach and maintain this goal we will be able to achieve great things in 2019 by making opc.ai more accessible to more people by adding better compatibility charts for vehicles, search filters & better editing tools for guides, Discord integrations, faster scraping of data across the web to fill about vehicles.
