Feature: gCode viewer and file browser? #36
Wondering if there's anything on your roadmap for implementing a gCode viewer (similar to that in Octoprint currently, uses a socket stream to pass data continuously)?
Or any thoughts on implementing a file browser per-printer that would allow starting the print remotely?
@calonmerc sorry for the delay. I was just back from an extended trip this week.
I guess your request to have gcode viewer and to remotely start print job are related. So I'm trying to address them both here.
I have not considered remote job starting as a feature on the roadmap because I think, more often than not, a user will have to do some work (taking previous print off the plate, leveling the bed, making sure the filament is what you want, etc) on the printer before kicking off the job.
Let me know if you do freqently need to start print job remotely.
I personally do, as I tend to get jobs for printing when I've left the house, but I always leave my printer clean and ready to go. Having to change filament would change that, as well, but generally I print in the same filament for most things. Otherwise, remote gcode would be more appreciated!
