Setup wifi using bluetooth

Tue Dec 20, 2016 10:53 am

Hello fellow raspberry-nerd

Using a LG ultra-wide monitor and a Raspberry Pi 3 I would like to make an digital art frame, just like the image bellow.
I was wondering if there's a tutorial out there which shows how to configure the Raspberry's wifi using it's bluetooth.
My idea is the following:
- The user connects to the Raspberry's bluetooth
- The Raspberry returns the detectable wifi SSID's
- The user selects a wifi and enters the password
- Then the user can set the art on the frame by going to the web-server that's running on the Raspberry.

Kind regards

Should be doable, with some programming on the Pi and the remote device. I'm not aware of anyone who has done it.

Why not simply connect via WiFi to an Access Point on the Pi?

Shameless plug - a little while ago I put together a simple script + app for configuring the Pi's wifi via bluetooth - viewtopic.php?t=153685&p=1015370
