What is OpenWrt?
Instead of trying to create a single, static firmware, OpenWrt provides a fully writable filesystem with optional package management. This frees you from the restrictions of the application selection and configuration provided by the vendor and allows you to use packages to customize an embedded device to suit any application. For developers, OpenWrt provides a framework to build an application without having to create a complete firmware image and distribution around it. For users, this means the freedom of full customization, allowing the use of an embedded device in ways the vendor never envisioned.
- Free and open-source. The project is entirely free and open-source, licensed under the GPL. The project is intended to always be hosted at an easily accessible site, with full source code readily available and easy to build.
- Easy and free access. The project will always be open to new contributors and have a low barrier for participation. Anyone shall be able to contribute. We, the current developers, actively grant write access to anyone interested in having it. We believe people are responsible when given responsibility. Just ask and you will be able to acquire the access rights you need.
- Community driven. This is not about 'us' offering 'you' something, it is about everyone coming together to work and collaborate towards a common goal.
OpenWrt has long been established as the best firmware solution in its class. It far exceeds other embedded solutions in performance, stability, extensibility, robustness, and design. It is the clear-cut goal of the OpenWrt developers to continue to expand development and ensure that OpenWrt is the foremost framework for innovative and ingenuitive solutions.
