I'm upgrading from LEDE 17.01.5 to OpenWrt 21.02.3.
At LEDE I have made some changes in LuCI and want to make the same to Openwrt 21.
But as I looked at /usr/lib/lua/luci/controller/admin folder, I noted that the files changed. Now there are only 2 files: index.lua and uci,lua.
My changes were done to system.lua.
Where this file is now?
I must say that all the LuCI documentation available, both on the OpenWrt site and on Git, are very weak. Trying to understand the structure of LuCI screens in OpenWrt is quite difficult.
I would like to duplicate the "System / Scheduled Tasks" screen for another file, but I can't find where it is.
Can anyone give me a clue?
I would like to write an tutorial about.
First I'm trying to understand how it works, now.
Can you please explain what happens after luci.sgi.cgi.run() in /www/cgi-bin/luci?
Where is luci/modules/luci-mod-system/htdocs/luci-static/resources/view/system/crontab.js called?
Hello. To document LuCI 0.10, I'm in need of more help.
Can anyone give me a hint on how the structure of the files involved in the Menu works?
So far I've found that the root of the Menu is in the /usr/share/luci/menu.d folder (if not, which one?), and apparently the first file used is luci-base.json.
My question is what is the name of the files called and in which folder they are located. The current documentation available for version 0.9 ends up confusing me.
At some point you will have to start doing your own homework or re-evaluate your ambitions against your abilities. As already mentioned, the full source is at your fingertips, including its complete revision history, show-casing example migrations from lua to ECMAscript.
@slh, I'm not here to study the deepness of OpenWRT code. If that is what you like, then that is your part.
Just because OpenWRT is opencode, doesn't mean everyone has to study the code.
I'm trying to help users that like to develop small things like including specific functions, for specific use, not bare metal programmers. This specific prigrammers need documentation, and this is what I am offering to do.
I know that programmers do not like to document, so someone must do it. OpenWRT.
I've been using OpenWRT since version 15 and I've always found enough documentation (including Lua and LuCI) to make use of functions that aren't installed by default.
If you understand LuCI, please share as little as possible. Just answer specific questions for me to find the thread. I leave from there. If you don't know, just don't answer at all. This is the spirit of a forum as successful as this community's.
Thank you if you can understand my point of view.
