In Action

Here’s how this tool works:

White Label / Personalize / Custom / Development

  • Download the repository
  • Do "npm install" and "npm install gulp-cli -g && npm install gulp -D"
  • After that, edit the "./src/config.json" file for your customization or personalization.
  • When you think you are satisfied, just do "gulp build" or "gulp" to initiate the building process.
  • If you want to reset the building process just do "gulp cleandev".
  • If you are editing the "./src/core.bat" you can use "gulp test" it is a combination of "gulp build" and "gulp cleandev" so you can quickly quality check the production build.
  • Do "gulp --tasks" to see all available "gulp" commands.


Q: Why you don’t use the built-in netsh wlan export command?

I’m aware of that command, the only reason why I use findstr instead of that command is that to make the tool more user-level that does not require any admin rights. For example, if you are about to use the tool in a machine that you don’t own then you’re not able to use the tool. Got the idea? If the tool does not require admin rights then we can avoid the UAC prompt and we can use the tool more efficiently, the command netsh wlan show profiles do not require admin rights that’s why we can still use that and capture the data and save it to file using the findstr command. Brilliant?
