painlessmesh_android

Allows to connect from Android to a painlessMesh network (https://gitlab.com/painlessMesh/painlessMesh). This small app for Android can connect to a painlessMesh network and act like a node. The app can connect, request routing info (NODE_SYNC_REQUEST) and send single (SINGLE) and broadcast (BROADCAST) messages. Restrictions:

No support for (TIME_DELAY), (TIME_SYNC) and (NODE_SYNC_REPLY). The app is connecting to the closest painlessMesh AP. Due to restrictions of Android it can not have AP and STA mode running in parallel. The app is 100% open source and has no ads. Since Android 6 it requires the location service permission from the user to be able to scan for WiFi networks. Makes no sense, but that's how it is :-(
