This page describes the various projects that are ongoing within the MassMesh community. If you are looking for something to help with, this is a good place to start!
We are always on the lookout for inexpensive hardware to run our software. Specifically, we are looking for devices around or under $100 that can run OpenWRT or other open distros such as Debian, and contain multiple networking interfaces to reduce the extra cost of adding adapters. Examples include multi-radio devices and small SBCs with multiple network interfaces such as the EspressoBin.
We are also keeping our eye on custom hardware like the [LibreRouter https://librerouter.org/]. If you have experience with small embedded devices or custom hardware, we encourage you to get in touch or attend one of our meetings.
Mesh Gateway Configuration
One of the challenges of bridging a mesh network with the wider internet is determining how and where traffic will traverse between the 2 networks. We are working on producing software that will help users of the mesh choose an exit to enable browsing the wider internet. This involves automating discovery of nodes that are set up to provide internet access, as well as automating the configuration of tunneling traffic. We are currently working with yggdrasil and transitd, so if you have programming experience (especially with Go or Lua), this would be a great area to help out with.
