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