The OpenMower Community Wiki

Welcome to the OpenMower Community Wiki!

This WIKI was only just started on 2022-04-22, but we'll collaborate on getting good information on the OpenMower project collected here.

If you want to contribute to the Wiki: join the Discord, ask at the #wiki-authors channel for a wiki account and a wiki admin will create one.

Also head over to the #wiki-authors channel if you want talk about wiki related stuff.

How to Get Started

One of the first steps currently is to browse around the discord and understand what the project is about. You can also have a look at Clemens' second video (here) of the project that details how to assemble the bot.

First: Check the FAQ

When you're ready, you can have a look at the Building the Mower section to see the Bill of Materials and steps required and check out Builder Road Map for a practical take on what to do.

(Note this wiki is in progress and not complete yet, but we're working on it!)

⚡ Before checking out the community wiki head over to the Official Documentation at



There is a continually evolving FAQ that is a good starting point for understanding the project and getting answers to some key questions.
