I completely reworked big parts of the tool, would be happy I you could test this!
The development server runs here: https://as-test.stephen304.com
The stable version stays here: https://chef.libremesh.org

Hi, you can just keep the default packages and add extra packages as you like. I have to rework the user interface for that, if anyone has an idea, please let me know!

Don't try to run OpenVPN and routing on a 4/32 device. It wastes time and annoys the pig.

You will have more options to free up space if you build your own image using the image builder and make menuconfig, but I don't think OpenVPN will fit in 4 MB no matter what you do.

It is possible, however some decent packages like opkg and dnsmasq are missing

My travel router, a tiny Nexx WT1520, is one of those 4/32 devices-non-grata. It works fine with a custom-built image that includes OpenVPN and in turn leaves out LuCI, opkg and pppoe. Sure it is limited, very much so indeed. And no, I wouldn't recommend anyone to buy it now, especially if you want to be on the safe side for the future. But it currently does the job I want it to do.

Frankly, I'm rather annoyed with this recent trend in here that anything below optimum is not worth pursuing anymore. Why is it suddenly so wrong to recognize, work within, and push limitations? Isn't that how OpenWrt started out?

"Below optimum" is just fine. Below optimum would be 8/64 devices. 4/32 devices are barely supportable. Bring your own support.

The goal here is to manage the expectation of people buying equipment and expecting it to really work without custom compilation.

existing devices you can buy NEW today with 16/128 start at $20. There's nothing wrong with you supporting your own ancient hardware, but there's definitely something wrong with expecting volunteer forum supporters to spend several hours explaining to a new user why their ancient device needs custom builds, multiply by tens of times a month, when the answer to it is to buy $20 worth of hardware.

This is awesome project! Thanks @aparcar :slight_smile:
I just want to know that is it possible to add custom packages?
I want to add luci-wrtbwmon_v0.8.3_all.ipk, wrtbwmon_0.36_all.ipk
But unfortunately they are not in OpenWRT repos.

Does that still work for you on 18.1.x, It looks weird to me now

The answer to your question is no -- It will have to be added by the maintainer of that project.

Unless someone else forks it and adds it themselves I guess

Install packages from a website
Packages can be installed directly from a web adress, e.g. with following command.
opkg install http://www.yyy.com/zzzz/$package_name.ipk

So I tried adding urls, didn't work :slight_smile:

Unknown package in request: **https://github.com/Kiougar/luci-wrtbwmon/releases/download/v0.8.3/luci-wrtbwmon_v0.8.3_all.ipk, https://github.com/pyrovski/wrtbwmon/releases/download/0.36/wrtbwmon_0.36_all.ipk**

It's not possible to add packages via URLs, they must be available in the repository.

However, if you're looking for a good bandwidth monitoring tool please check out luci-app-nlbwmon by @jow. See here some screenshots.
