nm-wifi-hotspot is only available on the unstable edge channel. It could break and change often.
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"
