What is openFIRST?

The openFIRST Portal System is an integrated set of modules which may be used together to create or enhance a web site. It is directed towards teams participating in the FIRST robotics competition. The openFIRST Portal System is a completely student-developed project that has had contributions from a wide variety of teams from Brasil, Canada and the United States.



openFIRST is developed by a number of students from the FIRST Robotics competition teams #1006, #1049, #781, #1075, #1501, #1227, and #1257. You may read more about the developers here. To learn how to contribute to the project, and for a technical reference about writing modifications / patches / enhancements for the openFIRST system, read the openFIRST Contributor's HOWTO. New contributors are always welcome.

Nightly Builds

By popular request, we have enstated a nightly build system. This allows those who do not have CVS clients access to the latest and greatest openFIRST code. Things in the Nightly Builds may not work as expected, and may not even work at all, but it's the easiest way to keep up with development, and be on the leading edge of openFIRST. Also, there is a nightly build available with all openFIRST packages.

See below the table for a compatibility notice (applies to users currently using versions of openFIRST written prior to, or during. August, 2003).

Package Name GZip BZip2 Zip

Compatibility Notice: All nightly builds starting in 2005 are not backwards compatible with any build from 2004 or before.
