Online ImageBuilder and Upgrade Server


#41

Amazing work, built my own firmware for very first time yesterday. You sir are awsome!!


#42

@aparcar: I've made a thread about what can be changed in the default configuration to save space and RAM here: Discussion about what can be removed/disabled/shrunk in images

It may be useful for your users if you add the possibility to change them. Most of them are simple yes/no choices.


#43

Cool thanks, I'll have a look. I have no problem implementing the possibility to change the default config if it doesnt imply any security issues for the server side


#44

Thanks for the notification, been offline lately. I just added the new release and the ImageBuilders are currently being downloaded and setup. All targets should be available within the next hour.


#45

It is a bit strange that the versions 18.06.0 and 18.06.1 do not include inside the Luci profile, I thought that only snapshot lacked those packages in their respective profiles.


#46

You're right and there is an issue aqui. But as I'm currently the only dev of chef and mainly want to improve the backend that fell a bit short. If anyone has some JavaScript skills I'd be happy for some help. If not I'll try to fis it within the next weeks

EDIT: sorry I misread the question initially. I'll add a button to install luci. However it is not installed by the image builders per default, but only on releases


#47

Thank you. This is a great service!

I appreciate your advice on may issues in the openwrt community.

As it turns out – upgrading to 18.06.1 on wrt32x has complexity if router not on default 192.168.1.1, which I reported on the forum in the main installing/using section. however - your imagebuilder is working great. thank you.


#48

Hi, I added a *flavor" field which allows to define a set of packages to install. Currently only Luci related, but the flavors are easily extendable, please have a look.

The server is doing well online, testing and working correctly, although I am also venturing and learning with the console. Thank you very much for your time.


#50

Liking the new flavor feature, thanks :slight_smile:

Currently getting build errors for snapshot for OpenWrt for WRT32X?

Never had an issue building before is this something I have to correct or yourself? Thanks in advance.


#51

Tried some other router model builds with snapshot, appears as all snapshot builds irrelavent of router are failing? JFYI.


#52

Thanks for the feedback! I manually reset the ImageBuilder and it seem to work now, see here the created image. I'll have to fix the meta ImageBuilder script.


#53

Thanks v much, appreciated.


#54

Hi, I improved the garbage collector so it automatically removes outdated image requests. Meaning if a snapshot build fails one day, you can retry 24 hours later with a freshly downloaded snapshot.


#55

I created some stats just as a demonstration what data could eventually be extracted from the server to get some additional insights. Feel free to request ideas for additional stat APIs.

As I reset the database just before the stats are somewhat boring. However feel free to create additional images and see how the stats change.


#56

Brilliant, thanks very much. Works perfect, just tried a snapshot build that had been failing with no issues. :trophy:


#57

@aparcar I have a suggestion about the web interface, rename the string Router Model to Device Model or something more generic, because OpenWRT has been running on non-router devices for a while, like the raspberry pi, and most/all devices of the sunxi and zynq targets


#58

All right, done for English, now just a few other languages are missing :roll_eyes:


#59

I can help you with the Spanish translation.
I don't wanna make a pull request for such a small change, so here it is:

"tr-model": "Modelo del dispositivo"

#60

Image builder seems to be completely offline at the moment.

Edit : back now :slight_smile:
