In this tutorial, we will be showing your how-to setup a Raspberry Pi Captive Portal by utilizing the popular nodogsplash software.
A Captive Portal is basically a screen that will be shown initially to anyone who connects to your Wi-Fi Access Point. Before they can begin utilizing the Wi-Fi connection they will need to complete an action, until they do that they will be continually greeted by the captive portal.
You can display whatever you want on the captive portal, so it can be highly useful if you want to layout some ground rules to using your Wi-Fi access point before a user gains access to it or whether you will require them to login before getting access.
Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Adafruit has the largest and best selection of Raspberry Pi accessories and all the code & tutorials to get you up and running in no time!
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.
