This used to be a page on our old Luci-based web admin UI, but that UI is being deprecated.

We are now writing a new UI that uses ubus via uhttpd-mod-ubus instead of Luci.

ubus is the system bus for OpenWRT, similar to D-Bus but very light-weight. Using ubus it is possible to configure all OpenWRT config files in the /etc/config directory, and even run scripts on the router. uhttpd-mod-ubus allows access to ubus over http with access restricted by access control lists. More info on this here.

The new UI includes a simulator (written in node.js) that pretends to be a sudowrt router, which makes it easy for developers to test their client-side code without having to always have a sudowrt router with them.
