Allow backup and restore of specific settings

Post by arthng »

I would like to request this feature.

Gargoyle should allow the user to select from a limited list of settings to backup and hence restore(via check box perhaps) - such as static ips, port forwarding, and access restrictions.

This should also allow restore when upgrading to a new major version of Gargoyle. Even if the settings are saved as text files it is useful when repopulating the settings in the new firmware.

I recommend you make these changes via scripts/cli. They can be deployed all at once and with every update. It follows infrastructure as code philosophy.

the command uci will be your friend here.
