I read through the readme and it doesn't seem like it'd be hard to compile from source on a linux machine but I was going through the process to create a package on LEDE and it doesn't seem trivial. This is a new area for me so if you have any guidance in this area, it'd really be helpful.

There are makefiles for openwrt/lede in the packaging/openwrt/ directory in git.

The full kismet package for tetra will likely work fine on most lede devices if you've got the RAM and flash space to handle it; otherwise I recommend just compiling the remote capture parts.

There are docs for building for openwrt under docs/howto/ which would be 95% identical for LEDE and other openwrt-based platforms; unfortunately with so many cpu architectures and versions out there custom building binary packages is probably unfeasible; i'll definitely be making a pineapple module for the nano and tetra since they're defined devices & I can keep up w/ their versions.
