Wifi toggle package propose

I've coded a wifi toggle script from scratch that allows the following configuration with a UCI file:

config wifitoggle

option button "BTN_1" #Button to toggle state

# option action "pressed" #Button action to toggle state
# option persistent 0 #Commit changes to wireless config file, persistent after reset. Always 0 if Timer enabled.
# option timer 0 #Turn off wireless after N seconds

option led_sysfs wrt160nl\:blue\:wlan #signal state with this led

# option led_enable_default 1 #led state for wifi enabled
# option led_enable_trigger none
# option led_enable_dev ""
# option led_enable_mode link
# option led_enable_delayon 0
# option led_enable_delayoff 0

# option led_disable_default 1 #led state for wifi disabled
# option led_disable_trigger none
# option led_disable_dev ""
# option led_disable_mode link
# option led_disable_delayon 0
# option led_disable_delayoff 0

Commented options are the default values.
Most distinct improvement is "Timer" option, when we just need to use wireless for a finite period, and want to make sure it remains off for the rest of the time(energy and security). Most usefull if the finite period is less than the period to human extinction.
Persistent option is also very usefull.

Please comment.

Hmm, is it generic enough for mac80201 drivers?

comment:3 Changed 8 years ago by edgar.soldin@…

should be generic. It does the same as above but without timer or uci config. It uses the wifi script for toggling an should therefor work with all wireless drivers.
