minimum rustc version A library providing anything that you will need to configure Wireguard interfaces.

Motivation

Wireguard has become a widely-used tunnel solution in these years. Being a fast, simple, and secure protocol, it became my favorite VPN protocol. However, there is no well-maintained server to dynamically modify the configurations. Thus, this limits the usage of Wireguard in some circumstances.

In order to manage wireguard configurations via REST api and beautiful interface. I decide to create a web server in Rust. But I found that there is also no well-maintained library to control Wireguard in the Rust ecosystem. So, my project became writing one library and one web server of Wireguard. :/

Current Status

This library still under development, it lacks of some core features and isn't properly tested.
