Earlier i had written a guide about setting up and running hostapd. To hone my python skills and make using and configuring hostapd simpler, i wrote a python client for hostapd. I also intend this project to serve as a base for a connectify-like GUI hostapd client, which i will start working on in a few days. This project is nearly complete, with proper logging system yet to implement and fix any unknown bugs.
Getting and Installing hostapd-python-script
Just paste this on your command line.
git clone https://github.com/nims11/hostapd-python-script.git cd hostapd-python-script
Read the README.textile file, it will get you well covered.
Help me improve it by reporting bugs, suggestions and pull requests. I have only tested it well enough under my Arch Linux installation with ath9k wifi driver, so reporting working/non-working environments will help a lot. I believe the sourcecode is simple enough to understand and i have documented most part of it. Will document the rest in few days as well.
Thank you 🙂
