Web Admin Development

See Firmware Wants for a description of what we're hoping to be able to implement with our web admin page.

The code for the web admin is hosted here:

Luci

Luci is the web admin framework that OpenWrt ships with and seems to be a popular choice among other projects. It is written in Lua, which is a sort of procedural language that's kind of a mix between javascript and ruby (??).

All of the Luci code is contained on the router in /usr/lib/lua/luci

Documentation related to the Luci project can be found at:

Luci Documentation

Its a MVC framework, and files are separated into controller/ model/ and view/

There's a fairly similar package that we can probably take some cues from:
