Full Description

IOT Wifi (Raspberry Pi AP + Client)





IOT Wifi is a wifi management container for Raspberry Pi, allowing simultaneous station and AP modes to enable wifi configuration over wifi. Programmatically configure or bring your own user interface.

IOT Wifi is a Raspberry Pi wifi management REST service written in Go and intended to run in a Docker container on a Raspberry Pi.

IOT Wifi sets up network interfaces, runs hostapd, wpa_supplicant and dnsmasq to run simultaneously. This allows a user (or another service) to connect to the Raspberry Pi via hostapd/dnsmasq and issue commands that configure and connect wpa_supplicant to another AP. IOT Wifi then exposes a small web server on the Pi and offers a JSON based REST API to configure Wifi. This allows you to build a custom Captive Portal web page or even programmatically connect from another device and use the exposed API to configure the target device.

Using wifi to configure a wifi connection is a natural requirement for consumer IOT devices. As Raspberry Pis are becoming a popular choice as an IOT platform, helps solve the frequent need to manage AP and Station modes.

Quick Start

Disable wpa_supplicant on host:

# prevent wpa_supplicant from starting on boot
$ sudo systemctl mask wpa_supplicant.service

# kill any running processes named wpa_supplicant
$ sudo pkill wpa_supplicant

Get default configuration:

# Download the default confguration file
$ wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/cjimti/iotwifi/master/cfg/wificfg.json

Run container:

$ docker run --rm --privileged --net host \
      -v $(pwd)/wificfg.json:/cfg/wificfg.json \
      cjimti/iotwifi
