Currently I keep all of my projects in a unique directory on my workstation as shown in the example below.
│ ├── benchy.jpg
│ ├── benchy_notes.md
│ ├── models
│ │ └── benchy.stl
│ └── slices
│ ├── benchyabs.gcode
│ └── benchy.gcode
│ └── slices
│ └── deathwray.gcode
Each of those directories is also an individual git repo I would like to automatically send gcode files to octoprint while maintaining the same directory structure but only sending the gcode files. There are various tools for accomplishing this, I chose syncthing since I already use it. It is configured as a one way sync and only sends *.gcode files to my octopi's /home/pi/.octoprint/uploads/ directory. This works as far as the file transfer goes but it bypasses whatever validation is taking place when you upload from the web ui so when I go to start a print I get the following error
Layer indicator not found in file: 'SF-CK2MNT/CCR10S.gcode'
Check layer pattern in DisplayLayerProgress-Settings and reupload the file!
If I upload the same file through the web interface I do not get the error
The Octoprint-gitfiles plugin seems like it would work except for it is designed to have all of your in one repo. In the example shown below I suppose I could have the fabrication directory be a repo but than I would need to setup repos inside of a repo which I think is possible using git sub modules but seems like it would add to much complexity. The other option would be send files to the watched folder but unless I am misunderstanding something that is going to move the *.gcode files to the uploads directory without preserving the parent directory. So my my questions are
- Is it ok to ignore the error message and run the print job anyways?
- Is there possibly a different plugin that I am overlooking that can solve this problem?
