Hi! I'm Gina Häußge, the creator and main developer of OctoPrint. Thank you for following this link!
As you might imagine, working on OctoPrint takes a lot of time and effort. The development of new functionality itself plus maintenance, bug fixing, testing, release preparations, reviews of contributed code and such alone is already a huge undertaking, and that even leaves out other coding unrelated tasks like writing documentation, community management, server administration etc.
If this sounds like a full time job, that's because it is. My full time work on OctoPrint is 100% crowd funded by people just like you!
You can support OctoPrint's development directly by becoming a patron on Patreon or making a one-time contribution on Paypal. You can also support my work by buying one of the All-in-one Kits listed below from whose proceedings I'll receive a share.
