Build wifi-connect from Github Repository

Hi Balena Community,

I am trying to create a docker-compose file that builds the wifi-connect image directly from the official Github repository. To do that I found that you can provide a url to the repository you would like to build. Because that returned an error:
Could not detect project type: Service wifi-connect: Could not find a Dockerfile for this service
I have tried to set the Dockerfile manually using the dockerfile option, but that didn’t work either and I got the following error message:
Could not detect project type: Service wifi-connect: Specified file not found or is invalid: Dockerfile.template

Docker Reference:

version: "2.1"


      dockerfile: Dockerfile.template
    network_mode: "host"
      io.balena.features.dbus: "1"
      - NET_ADMIN
      DBUS_SYSTEM_BUS_ADDRESS: "unix:path=/host/run/dbus/system_bus_socket"

Maybe one of you knows an answer to this problem.

Hi, thanks for reaching out. Unfortunatley URL to git repositories are not supported by the Balena supervisor. Check the documentation at

Thanks. I haven’t seen that.
