Using wifi-connect without balenaOS + Dockerfile

Is there a way to customize the behavior of wifi-connect before and after it connects to wifi when not using a Dockerfile?

The wifi-connect program automatically runs on startup, which means there isn’t a chance to make changes to how the different wifi states can be visualized (e.g. LEDs).

This isn’t an issue when using a Dockerfile because you can customize the behavior within the script.

(I also posted this in /projects, unsure which is more appropriate)

This isn’t an issue—I had assumed that wifi-connect was automatically configured to run at startup, but this isn’t the case.
