Topic: Making LUCI work on Debian (not OpenWRT)
I thought some of you might help, although this is an OpenWRT forum.
What I have:
I am developing a device (not a router!) which is based on a PC104 ARM processor. It essentially has a Debian based OS with just a custom kernel. I have a thttpd installed and running no problem.
What I want:
I would like to use LuCI web interface on my system to configure the different settings on the device.
What I did:
I downloaded LuCI 0.10 from svn. Then, I downloaded the packages like ncurses-dev and others, so "make" worked well.
Now, I am really sure what to do next - the directory now has a "host" directory. My logic says I need to copy that to the / of my machine. I don't really want to screw things up and I have not found anything that answers my questions on google.
I'd like someone to give me an idea of direction and what to do next.
Also, I still have a small doubt: Once installed, I plan to add "plugins" as pages to configure different equipment attached to the machine by writing text configuration files to disk. Is LuCI capable of this, or should I just develop something custom?
