Welcome to the Printer wiki!
This project is a toolkit for exploring the possibilities of connecting small physical printers to internet services. It makes it easy to send small, designed pieces of content to connected devices anywhere in the world. Read more on the project page or the introductory blog post.
If you're not sure what the point is, or you're building a printer and are seeing an issue, this is a good place to check first.
Learn how to make a printer
Printers can be made easily from Arduinos and commonly-available small thermal printers, with a handful of basic components.
Building content services
If you're interested in making your own content for printing (and you should be, that's the whole point!), then this is the place to start.
More about the printer API
Learn more about the backend server API.
More about the distributed, federated architecture
One of the distinguishing features of this project is that it doesn't require a single, central server or content generator.
