prpl Foundation - the story continues [OpenWRT Summit 2018]

7 new members joined in the last year.

prpl APIs aim to break the cycles of one-off developments. Instead, collaborate to develop and grow a platform for different devices an on which features can be added.

The APIs are split into a high-level API and a low-level API. The low-level API is provided by the chipsets, the high-level API is provided by the platform.

A crucial point for prpl is to improve the open source relationship. Companies can contribute raw work to prpl on github, and prpl can work on upstreaming it.
