Wifi Radar: More Improvements

Dienstag, den 27. Januar 2015

The developer of wifi-radar replied, let’s see what happens when he takes a closer look into my code. I’ve set up a git here:


Latest improvements are:

* Use scroll wheel to scroll through access points or channels
  (depending on the view)
* Select multiple channels to display with CTRL and left click
* Use ESC key to unselect individual channels
* Better speed, especially when firing up the radar
* A little clean-up
* A couple of bug fixes

Wifi-Radar: More improvements

Donnerstag, den 22. Januar 2015
* Using Pango for better font rendering
* Information about selected a/p including coloured quality bar
* Some bugfixes and performance improvements


No message from the maintainer by now 🙁 Perhaps I have to start a completely new application for having my wifi-radar-thingy at hand.

Wifi-Radar: New Realtime Radar Display

Mittwoch, den 21. Januar 2015

I did some changes to Wifi-Radar lately so it better fits my needs:

* Bugfix: crash when connection in awkward state
* Bugfix: mouse wheel not working (use GtkScrolledWindow instead of VScrollBar)
* Main window is GtkWindow instead of GtkDialog now
* Ctrl+c handler for main window
* ESSID in bold markup for better visualization
* New column in list: quality - shows a progress bar, percentual values and dBm
* New icon
* New radar display:
    * Radial visualization of access points grouped by channels
    * Signal strength visualized via distance from center
    * Legend explaining relationship of colours and channels
    * Legend shows occupation of channels as tiny bars
    * Highlight follows selection in TreeView

wifi-radar_screenshotIt’s beyond debate that the radar display can be improved much more but perhaps it’s at least a start.

I mailed this stuff to Sean Robinson, the actual maintainer of the project, let’s see what happens.

The changed source of the version 2.0.s08+dfsg-1.1 from Debian repositories can be downloaded here (put into /usr/sbin/) and the new icons (from /usr/share/pixmaps/) can be downloaded here. Install package first and copy things over afterwards. Alernatively here is the full package.
