DWC2.0 UI Tweaks / Temperature Readings



  • Any chance we could get some upgrades to the UI fairly soon?

    My biggest problem with it at the moment is that the display density is low - I don’t get much useful information by looking at the screen, especially on a smaller resolution monitor like the PI.

    I was hoping that the padding could be pulled back in the CSS (maybe replaced with a bigger font size?) and it’d sure be nice to enable custom floating / docking panes to reflow the sizes of each component. Take a look at JQWidgets floating panes - they have snap capabilities, but can be ‘docked’ as well.

    Also, by default the temperature graph is really small now, whereas that’s the most important part of the UI for me. I think the current position and MCU temp is larger, which is useless 95% of the time.

    Anyway, just a few thoughts. I can go in and customize it myself if needed, but I was hoping that it could be updated for everyone in general. Love the gcode input window updates though.

    If you have the capacity to show how this would be implemented with DWC then that would be great! having user updatable layout is certainly on the cards, but a nice working implementation would speed it up!



  • I can take a stab at it when I come around to it. There’s a few other upgrades on my list before I return to this one, so it might be a few weeks. Could probably just fork it when the time comes and clean everything up - wouldn’t take too much more work for the full implementation as it would a mock-up.
