I'm in contact to a guy who would like to add support for the Renault 
Kangoo ZE.

He's no developer, but has managed to collect quite some info on the 
Kangoo's CAN / OBD2 communication. The Kangoo has lots of live data 
frames, and partially even works with the Zoe module. I told him he can 
define a DBC file, but saw we didn't have any documentation on this 
approach yet.

So I've written a small primer: 

But I haven't used DBC myself except for writing this primer now, so if 
someone has more experience, I'd appreciate a second look.

An example on how to trigger and decode OBD2 reads would also be nice, 
but I think he'll manage without for now.
