LEDE Documentation

LEDE is a highly extensible GNU/Linux distribution for embedded devices (typically wireless routers). LEDE is based on the OpenWrt project. Unlike many other distributions for routers, LEDE is built from the ground up to be a full-featured, easily modifiable operating system for embedded devices. In practice, this means that you can have all the features you need with none of the bloat, powered by a modern Linux kernel.

User Guide

Start here if you already have LEDE running on your router. LEDE has hundreds of optional packages that give you VPNs, VLANs, and other capabilities.

Developer Guide

Start here if you want to create custom builds of LEDE or contribute to its development. There are a large number of tools that make the development easy.
