Welcome to the LEDE Project

The LEDE project is a Linux-based, embedded meta-distribution based on OpenWrt, targeting a wide range of wireless SOHO routers and non-network devices. LEDE is an acronym for “Linux Embedded Development Environment”.

LEDE spun away from the mother project in May 2016, with goals of continuing to develop superior software in an open governance model and encouraging new developers to contribute to the development effort.

Like any open source project, LEDE thrives on the efforts of its users and developers.

  • If you want to develop the software, please refer to our Developer Guide to learn how to get the source code, build it, and contribute your changes back to the project.
  • If you're not a developer, you can still help. The documentation can always be improved (even if it's to verify that the instructions match your experience), or you can help other community members with questions. Don’t hesitate to Register yourself in the wiki, or join our mailing list and IRC channels to get in touch .

The *Wrt community is made up of many great communities all tinkering on their own mission in improving something on this planet. The Following communities have kindly decided to endorse this project. Thanks !
