How Embedded is NetworkManager

I’m posting this question first just to ascertain if using NetworkManager is possible in the embedded project I am working on.


This project uses multiple networking interfaces (Eth, WiFi, GSM-Radio, Bluetooth) but runs as a “headless” black box, gathering telemetry information and providing some gateway support. NetworkManager would be a very good fit for this device, but I am concerned that NetworkManager may have link dependencies for GUI support, something the product does not have.


I’m interesting in hearing if anyone has tried running NetworkManager without any GUI.. is it possible?


FYI, product is similar to a BeagleBone Black.. OS is a variant of Yocto, but we can run Debian Wheezy for initial experimentations.
