wifi-cli

Manage wireless network connections from the command line. This package wraps the builtin nmcli command in Linux systems, and thus will not work on other operating systems. Hoping to add support for other platforms soon.

See it in action (asciinema)

Installation

This package requires at least Node v6

To use this tool, you have to install it globally through npm:

$ npm install -g wifi-cli

After installation, you will then have the wf command available from the command line.

Usage

Display current wireless network connection:

$ wf

  You are currently connected to NETWORK_NAME

Scan nearby wireless networks:

$ wf scan

     SSID              SECURITY     SIGNAL

  1  NETWORK_ONE       WPA WPA2     84
  2  NETWORK_TWO       WPA2         71
  3  NETWORK_THREE     --           70

Connect to a wireless network:

$ wf connect 1
$ wf connect "NETWORK_NAME"
  Password for wireless network NETWORK_NAME: *****

  You are now connected to "NETWORK_NAME"

Disconnecting from a wireless network:

$ wf disconnect

  You are now disconnected from "NETWORK_NAME"
