Build Gluon License GitHub release (latest SemVer)


Gluon is a firmware framework to build preconfigured OpenWrt images for public mesh networks.

Getting started

We have a huge amount of documentation over at

If you're new to Gluon and ready to get your feet wet, have a look at the Getting Started Guide.

Gluon's developers frequent an IRC chatroom at #gluon on hackint. There is also a webchat that allows for uncomplicated access from within your browser.

Issues & Feature requests

Before opening an issue, make sure to check whether any existing issues (open or closed) match. If you're suggesting a new feature, drop by on IRC or our mailinglist to discuss it first.

We maintain a Roadmap for the future development of Gluon.

Use a release!

Please refrain from using the

branch for anything else but development purposes! Use the most recent release instead. You can list all releases by running
git tag
and switch to one by running
git checkout v2021.1 && make update

If you're using the autoupdater, do not autoupdate nodes with anything but releases. If you upgrade using random master commits the nodes might break eventually.
