ifwifi - A simple wrapper over nmcli using wifiscanner made in rust.

I felt bothered because I never remember the long and tedious command line to setup my wifi interface. So, I wanted to develop something using rust to simplify the usage of nmcli, and I met the wifiscanner project that gave me almost everything I wanted to create this tool.

Command line:

  • ifwifi help - Help menu with the few options provided by this tool
  • ifwifi scan - It will scan the wifi available in your area
  • ifwifi connect --interface IFACE --password PASSWORD --ssid SSID - Set the wifi

Terminal example: alt text

How to build:

  • cargo build --release
