These scripts display information from a Kismet XML log file during a wardrive on the Adafruit LCD for the Raspberry Pi. The more mobile your wardriving setup the better, so why not use a Pi? Carrying around a monitor with your Pi is not ideal so we can use an LCD to display information about gathered networks during the wardrive.
The script will start by displaying the total number of networks discovered thus far. By pressing the UP or DOWN buttons you can cycle between the other screens. The LEFT and RIGHT buttons scroll the text on the screen left or right. The other information that is displayed is the total number of networks using WPS, WPA, WEP, or no encryption.
This code requires that Adafruit’s Raspberry Pi Python Code be installed in your home directory on the Raspberry Pi. It also requires you have Paul McMillan’s kismetclient installed in your home directory. Note that the script assumes your username is pi. If your username isn’t pi go into pi_kismet.py and on lines 2 and 3 change the pi in the strings to your username.
You will also need the development version of Kismet.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
