Heavily influenced by OctoDash, I've been thinking about a dashboard plugin to display relevant printer/job status.
- Purpose; It would be nice to have a dashboard in OctoPrint that gives a clear and concise overview of the current printer/print state.
- Motivation: Connection, temp and printjob status is spread out over multiple menus and tabs so I have to browse around to learn what’s going on.
- Suggestion: Make a new “dashboard/status/home” tab that provides the most important info and make it default when opening OctoPrint.
Explanation, top-down, L>R:
[printer section] (always displayed)
Printer Status (only displayed if Connection state = Connected)
[Job section] (only displayed if Printer Status = printing or paused)
Time left (leveraging printtimegenious if installed)
Layer (or height, depending on user setting)
Estimated total print time (leveraging printtimegenious if installed)
Estimated material to be used in m (or g, depending on user setting)
["Sensor" section], (displayed depending of if connection status = connected)
Would this be possible to develop as a plugin?
