Introduction of the project
There are many cases in which equipment attached to libremesh routers is used to make point-to-point links. This is known as ground routing. There is a way to configure routers to work through these links in a completely normal way, without splitting the experience of the mesh. Currently, it requires intervention by using uci commands or by typing the file configuration file directly. The idea is to build a simple configuration screen for LiMe app, which allows users to make use of this feature without major complications.
My name is Marcos Gutierrez, I’m from Argentina and I’ve been working with the Libremesh team for two years. I am a user and member of QuintanaLibre, a mesh network where LibreMesh is used.
- Build a ubus module that writes and tests the ground routing settings in lime.
- Build a user interface within the LiMe app to configure settings and display alert messages if necessary.
- Deploy a use case and validate that it works in the real world.
- Bonus: If there is time left to generate a LuCi view with the same capabilities.
