Name

sfwbar-wifi — Sfwbar Wifi interface

Filename: wifi-iwd.so Filename: wifi-nm.so

Requires: none

Synopsis

Wifi module interface provides means to query and control the wifi network. There are currently two modules providing this interface: wifi-iwd provides support for IWD daemon and wifi-nm provides support for NetworkManager.

* In order to use wifi-iwd module, the user must have permission to control iwd daemon. Usually permissions are granted by adding the user to `netdev` or `wheel` user group *

Expression Functions

WifiGet(Property)

function WifiGet queries a property for a currently advertized iwd network. The supported properties are:

"Path"

an object path of the device, this is used as a unique id to provide notifications of changes or destruction of the device and to control the device. This property is valid upon receipt of wifi_updated trigger.

"RemovedPath"

an object path of the most recently removed device. This is populated upon emission of the wifi_removed trigger.

"SSID"

an SSID of the network.

"Type"

a Type of the network ('open', 'wep', 'psk' or '8021x')

"Known"

an indcator of whether this is a known network ("1" = known, "0" = new)

"Strength"

signal strength of the network (a string containing a number in range 1-100 )

"Connected"

an indicator of whether the daemon is connected to the network ("1" = connected, "0" = not connected)

Actions

WifiScan <Duration>

Initiate scan for wireless networks.

WifiAck

Notify the module that all information for the currently advertized network has been processed. The module may then emit another wifi_updated event if further network updates are available.

WifiAckRemoved

Notify the module that all information for the currently advertized network removal has been processed. The module may then emit another wifi_removed event if further network removals are queued.

WifiConnect <path>

Attempt to connect to a network specified by the path.

WifiDisconnect <path>

Disconnect from a network specified by the path.

WifiForget <path>

Forget a known network specified by the path.

Triggers

The module defines the following triggers:

"wifi_level"

This signal is emitted when signal strength for the current connection changes.

"wifi_updated"

this trigger is emitted when a new network is discovered or properties of a network are changed. Once the trigger is emitted, the information for the relevant network will be available via WifiGet expression function. Once the config finished handling the network update, it should call action WifiAck.  Upon receipt of this action, the module may emit wifi_updated again if further network updates are queued.

"wifi_removed"

this trigger is emitted when a network is no longer available and should be removed from the layout. The path of the removed network is available via WifiGet("RemovedPath"). Once the config finished removing the netowrk, it should call action WifiAckRemoved. Upon receipt of this action, the module may emit another wifi_removed trigger if further networks have been removed.

"wifi_scan"

this trigger is emitted when scan for networks has been initiated.

"wifi_scan_complete"

this trigger is emitted when scan for networks is complete.
