Extra (and possibly unneeded most of the time) content loaded when initially loading Octoprint's UI in a browser #1858

What were you doing?

Loading the octoprint homepage

What did you expect to happen and what happened instead?

I expected the resources needed to load octoprint and make it functional to be loaded.

What I see is that additional resources are loaded. Specifically resources that are part of the announcements (mostly images from the plugins channel).
And one of those images is 2.4MB.

This happens every fresh load of the octoprint interface.

I don't think I need to include this as its a UI bug

Link to contents of terminal tab or serial.log

Same as above. Not needed for a UI bug

Link to contents of Javascript console in the browser

Screenshot(s) or video(s) showing the problem:

I have read the FAQ.

My guess is when channel data is loaded and the html is put into the corresponding dom objects the browser is loading the images (as it should since the dom has been updated).

But the announcements are hidden unless I go look at them. I don't think it should be loading all the related media every time.

Good point 👍 With the above commit images from the announcements are now lazy loading. Already on maintenance, soon on devel and to be released with 1.3.3.
