Automated (Scripted) Configuration of Raspberry Pi Access Point #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
Thanks so much to Terrance for sending in this tip! Terrance writes:
Hi- I’m a Linux & Network Engineer. I used a Pi to prototype automating the configuration of a wireless access point. After the project was completed, I felt the repo had use beyond just using Pi’s to cover WiFi dead-zones, but was an inexpensive way to use single-board Linux computers to train practical networking skills. All key parameters are
abstracted into user-configurable variables in a centralized variables file which all dependent scripts source. Anyhoo, my code is all well commented in the repo and allows folks to see how the gears turn inside an access point. In addition to the README.md, I’ve created. a Wiki. on Github and a
YouTube demo of executing the code.
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!
Adafruit has had paid day off for voting for our team for years, if you need help getting that going for your organization, let us know – we can share how and why we did this as well as the good results.

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.
