LuCI is an open-source framework that is widely used to build web interfaces for embedded devices such as WiFi routers. In the CBI based old system, pages were rendered on the router and delivered as HTML to the browser, which causes a higher load on the embedded devices. This makes the system less efficient and can lead to performance issues.
Community networks, which often rely on lower-specification devices, can greatly benefit from these improvements. The improved performance and reduced load on devices will make it easier for community networks to manage and maintain their networks using LuCI-based tools.
Community Bonding Period
During the GSoC community bonding period, I have had an incredible learning experience. I have been fortunate to have constant communication and guidance from my mentor, Andreas Bräu, who has been exceptionally supportive throughout the process. Whenever I face challenges or got stuck, my mentor is there to provide valuable insights and assistance. Additionally, this journey has allowed me to become more familiar with the OpenWrt and Freifunk communities, providing me with a broader understanding of the ecosystem and related technologies. The community bonding period has been instrumental in preparing me for the successful migration of future applications and has fostered valuable connections within the community.
