Magisk or SuperSU
Both are good to go, but depends of your need.
I have made a small comparaison, of course it does not contains all the criteria (different point of views are welcomed).
A standard, compatible with almost all "rooted apps"
Break SafetyNet
Can increase battery drain

Magisk :
Include modules support (FOS include patched module for arise)
100% Systemless, do not break safetynet

Young project, some apps are not compatible

How to pass SafetyNet?
- Follow the aroma installer, after that make sure to enable "Magisk Hide" in Magisk settings.

Which recovery should i use?
Use the latest official TWRP available here.

Want to report an issue, a problem?
Please report it HERE, it much more handy compared to the forum.
Provide as much information as possible, the installation logs or logcat are important.
You can also suggest your ideas :)

What does mean CE?
- CE stand for Community Edition, it's based on the beta branch of OnePlus, the non-CE builds are based on stable branch, and ready for daily use.

How to downgrade to non-CE?
- All you have to do is to perform a clean flash that means (wipe: data, system, dalvik, cache).

Can i dirty flash this rom ?
- You can dirty flash if u're using my previous version, but if anything wrong, a clean flash before reporting is a must.

I got a bootloop caused by a incompatible/bad layer.
Boot into TWRP.
Go to Mount.
Select System.
Return to Home.
Go to Advanced.
Go to file manager.
Go to /system/vendor/overlay/ and remove the bad overlay apk.

My installation is stuck at XX%.
- Wait one or two minutes and touch two times at the bottom right of your screen, if you got nothing reflash the rom.

I have unselected/selected a setting in the aroma and now i (don't) want it.
- Reflash the rom

Tips :
For reducing the battery usage, i recommend to disable Viper4Android for the phone speaker for everyday usage.
The economy will minimal but we don't need an audio treatment for a simple *ding* notification.
