    wifiresti is written in Python 2 which is now obsolete and no longer officially supported.

    Somebody needs to update and convert it to Python 3.

    There is also a curses interface for NetworkManager called nmtui.
    And of course, instead of looking directly into the config files (as root), one can use nmcli

    (bash) nmcli -g NAME connection show
    HP 7 VoiceTab Network
    JioFi4_12E9FE
    sktab

    To obtain the password for JioFi4_12E9FE do
    (bash) nmcli -s -g 802-11-wireless-security.psk connection show JioFi4_12E9FE
    xxxxxxxxxxx

    And to get all values, remove the option -g 802-11-wireless-security.psk

    seems to be applicable to Mint and Fedora, but not on Raspbian which does not have an /etc/NetworkManager directory.
