In this episode Rowell talks about an issue he is troubleshooting for one of its customer. François talks about some python scripts he has been working on.
Ekahau Python Script
The objectives of the script is to produce a document that will hold all the information related to access points installations. The script creates the document from scratch using data that is part of the Ekahau project file.
Here is an example of what type of document is created by the script: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1a4IZPzWiJ0D1Vn3xA_BAJroOVq6cxjizYScGbq5kbbw/edit?usp=sharing
The scripts also creates a grid and an image per AP highlighting the location of an AP so it is easier for the installer to know where to install the AP. Here is an example:
