OpenWrt GUI: Ajax in your router

Category: Screencast, Showcase

<>p>OpenWrt is a Linux distribution for the Linksys WRT54G. Instead of trying to cram every possible feature into one firmware, OpenWrt provides only a minimal firmware with support for add-on packages.

To configure the router, you do so via a web page of course, and this is where Ajax comes in :)

Eugene Lazutkin has started to implement a rich ui for OpenWrt by creating an ajaxian host editor for OpenWrt using Dojo.

You can see it in action, without having to buy a WRT54G :)

Check out the screencast.

Even though i really like AJAX router configuration is one of the few places where you sometimes need to connect with Lynx. I really hope users can do that.
