wpa-gui -

I use wpa_supplicant roaming mode and deactivated eth0 for conman. WiFi config is saved in wpa_supplicant.conf and can be edited via wpa-gui from wpa_supplicant project. You can find my bitbake recipe for wpa-gui here [1] and a package here [2]. There are also my changed files in wpa-roaming.tar and and a README in [2]. I have been using this setup for months now with connections to WPA(2) PSK, WEP and unencrypted networks with dhcp and static IP.

You then just need to switch WiFi on and off in SHR settings then udev and wpa_supplicant will do the rest :)
