Awesome work!
Is there any example for wifiP2P (Wifi Direct)?
Thanks

Thanks! You can try any combination of Beacons/Adapters with the main demo app (contains a configurator). https://github.com/Blaubot/Blaubot/tree/master/examples/blaubot-app But I would not recommend WiFi-Direct as it is not really stable on Android. Do you expect high traffic for your use-case?

Yes, actually I need it to be very stable...
I really liked the king, prince and "peasansts" architecture though :)
As for traffic, yes, lots of high res images...
I'm checking out the "salut" lib https://github.com/markrjr/Salut,
if it wont work I might try going with BT.
Thanks again!

Uh, usually "high res" and "lots" and bluetooth don't go well together (if a decent latency is required as well) :-) Would be nice to hear if salut worked out for you. If so, we could create a blaubot-adapter as a wrapper around it. As of 11/2015 the WiFi-Direct stability was varying amongst different devices but almost never stable :-) Also note, that you still could use bluetooth/nfs/... simultaneously to discover devices while connected to any WLAN and then communicate via tcp-ip using the ethernet-adapter at wlan-speed. You could even create a WLAN using some tethering-hacks (reflection to hidden api) on an android phone.
