A simple WiFi Hotspot using NetworkManager

This snap configures a WiFi hotspot talking to the network-manager snap. It is designed to be used on an UbuntuCore appliance image and is only tested in that context.

To use this package you need to have the network-manager snap installed

 snap install --channel=20/stable network-manager

... then connect to the network-manager interface with

 snap connect nm-wifi-hotspot:network-manager network-manager

This will create a hotspot with the default SSID "UbuntuCore Hotspot" and with a WPA2 key set to "0123456789". To change SSID or the key from the default you can use

 snap set nm-wifi-hotspot ssid="My Cool SSID"
 snap set nm-wifi-hotspot psk="abcdefghijk"
