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 either regularly or through one time contributions. 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.
