AREDN mesh firmware languaje translation

Hello and pologies if this is not right forum.

A group of friends of mine are helping me translate AREDN firmware
interface to spanish and we like to ask a few questions.
- We are using docker image arednmesh/builder, is it current?
- Test device is TPlink CPE 510 V3.8, there is support for v3.0, Do you
   forsee any problems with this specific version?
- We already compiled firmware for that target, but noticed that size is
   somewhat larger than image shared in your website, will you share the
   configuration files used to produce images? We like to check any
   differences with our settings
- Are you aware of other efforts in this direction?

Thank you, we appreciate any help you can provide.

We will contact you.

Hey, that's great!  Before you go any further, let us set you up as an AREDN contributor in github.  One of us will contact you.

Andre, K6AH

Thank you Andre!

Thank you Andre!

Not sure about having all the qualifications to code at your standards, but I hope I´ll get them ASAP...

The part of the issue that

The part of the issue that makes this really difficult is that the original web ui for AREDN (aka. formerly BBHN), was never built to be localized.
The new AREDN "Angular" UI project will make the translations trivial to implement in a single codebase (via locale files and browser locale detection).

This reminds me, are there any Angular developers on the forums that would like to contribute to this effort?   Let me know.

You are correct, all strings

You are correct, all strings are embedded in Perl scripts print commands, we envision taking
all strings to a configuration file, give each string a symbolic name and use that name in the
print command. There will be a configuration file for each Perl script, like status_EN or status_ES,
script will read from status.conf where this is a symlink to one of the language files. Any new
languages will need to translate files from one of existing ones.

Angular seem interesting, Is there a place where I can read about it? Effort on our part may not
make sense if Angular is close to be released.


EDIT: Never mind, found the git project repository. Thanks

Angular - The Complete Guide (2020 Edition)

I signed up for this on-line course (at $9.99) awhile back but have yet to get the time to get into it: Angular - The Complete Guide (2020 Edition) -
There are a number of free previews there but here's one to look at:

I am not promoting this whatsoever, only suggesting it as a place to get a feel for Angular. If I ever get into it, I'll try to volunteer to help here, but that's not going to happen for a while yet.

Good luck,

Im ready for first tests, but

Im ready for first tests, but run into a problem. I am using a TPlink CPE-510 v3.8,
tried to load aredn- and get back a popup
window stating my hardware is not supported.

Then tried aredn-1501-31c6669-ath79-tplink_cpe510-v3-factory.bin and bricks it.
I already recovered my TPlink. Is there a different firmware i should load?

Also tried nightly build aredn-1532-80619b7-ath79-tplink_cpe510-v3-factory.bin, same result. TPlink is bricked,
at some point i have a pop up with reboot, in a sniffer running in that etherent port of my mac
I see bootp  packets.

Thanks for any advise or pointers.
