LuCI OpenWISP

https://ci.publicwifi.it/buildStatus/icon?job=luci-openwisp

LuCI extensions for the OpenWISP project.

https://raw.githubusercontent.com/openwisp/luci-openwisp/master/status-page-screenshot.png


Goal

The goal of this project is to provide a limited web interface for LEDE / OpenWRT so that users can configure only the bare minimum in order for their device to connect to the OpenWISP 2 Controller.

Use this web interface only if you have a similar use case, otherwise you should keep the default LEDE / OpenWRT interface (luci-mod-admin-full).

Features

  • login with a different username and password combination than the root SSH password
  • possibility to edit LAN settings
  • status page (inherited from luci-admin-full)
  • upgrade firmware page
  • reboot
  • logout
  • meta-packages for easier installation:
    • luci-openwisp
    • luci-openwisp-mbedtls
    • luci-openwisp-openssl
    • luci-openwisp-polarssl
    • luci-openwisp-cyassl

Install precompiled packages

First run:

opkg update

Then install one of the latest builds:

opkg install <URL>

Where <URL> is the URL of the image that is suitable for your case.

For a list of the latest built images, take a look at downloads.openwisp.org.

If you need to compile the package yourself see Compiling luci-openwisp.

Configuration options

UCI configuration options must go in /etc/config/luci_openwisp.

  • username: username for the web interface, defaults to operator
  • password: encrypted password for the web interface, defaults password (encrypted)

Change web UI password

To change the default password for the web UI, use the openwisp-passwd script:

openwisp-passwd
Changing password for luci-mod-openwisp, username: operator
New password:
secret
Retype password:
secret
luci-mod-openwisp password for user operator changed successfully

Packages

This repository contains 2 packages:

  1. luci-mod-openwisp: contains the custom password validator and limited menu interface
  2. luci-theme-openwisp: contains a few adjustments to the general luci theme

Additionally a few meta-packages are also present in the luci-openwisp directory. These meta-packages can be used in alternative to the commonly used luci or luci-ssl.

  • luci-openwisp: depends on uhttpd, uhttpd-mod-ubus, luci-mod-openwisp and luci-theme-openwisp
  • luci-openwisp-mbedtls: depends luci-openwisp, libustream-mbedtls and px5g
  • luci-openwisp-openssl: depends luci-openwisp, libustream-openssl and px5g
  • luci-openwisp-cyassl: depends luci-openwisp, libustream-cyassl and px5g
  • luci-openwisp-polarssl: depends luci-openwisp, libustream-polarssl and px5g

Compiling luci-openwisp

The following procedure illustrates how to compile the meta-package luci-openwisp:

git clone git://git.lede-project.org/source.git lede
cd lede

# configure feeds
cp feeds.conf.default feeds.conf
echo "src-git luciopenwisp https://github.com/openwisp/luci-openwisp.git" >> feeds.conf
./scripts/feeds update -a
./scripts/feeds install -a
# any arch/target is fine because the packages are architecture indipendent
arch="ar71xx"
echo "CONFIG_TARGET_$arch=y" > .config;
echo "CONFIG_PACKAGE_luci-openwisp=y" >> .config
make defconfig
make tools/install
make toolchain/install
make package/luci-openwisp/compile
make package/luci-openwisp/install

Alternatively, you can configure your build interactively with make menuconfig, in this case you will need to select one of the available luci-openwisp variants by going to Luci > 1. Collections:

git clone git://git.lede-project.org/source.git lede
cd lede

# configure feeds
cp feeds.conf.default feeds.conf
echo "src-git luciopenwisp https://github.com/openwisp/luci-openwisp.git" >> feeds.conf
./scripts/feeds update -a
./scripts/feeds install -a
make menuconfig
# go to Luci > 1. Collections and select one of the variants
make -j1 V=s
