OctoText plugin

Good afternoon people! I am looking for anyone that is interested in helping me to test my plugin. I call it OctoText and it will send you a text or email along with a snapshot of the Raspberry Pi's camera (if enabled) based on your favorite printer events (upload file, start print, stop print, error). It's published here: GitHub - berrystephenw/OctoText: To add text notifications for common 3D printer events comments welcome!


Can you make it send a text when the printer (Prusa I3 MK3S) runs out of filament?

I don't think so because filament runout on a mk3s is handled by the printer

actually, it should work. The plugin looks for printer messages echo:busy: paused for user which is a string that the MMU (at least) sends when the filament has run out. I don't know if the messages are any different between the MMU and normally equipped Prusa printers, but if it doesn't work let me know and I'll work on it.
At the moment I haven't pushed these changes to the main branch, but if you install the plugin you just need to switch to the rc branch and you will get the latest features.

I just got a chance to test notifications on a Prusa I3 MK3S (no MMU). It sent me a text when it ran out of filament saying the print had paused.

Thanks Stephen!! You are you the man!!
