Every since OctoEverywhere launched in beta back in November, the user home we know and love hasn’t changed much. Some have asked, why does all of my printer information load on top of the main website homepage? Well… there’s no good reason beyond when I was originally working on the prototype it was a quick and easy place to put it.
I have wanted to make the user home experience better for some time now and I finally found some time to do it. When reworking the experience, I had a few high-level goals:
- Make a new delightful home for our just community.
- Make it functional and glanceable.
- Make it clean.
- Make it modern.
One big goal was to make the new printer dashboard functional, so if you wanted to super quickly check on a print you don’t have to load the full OctoPrint dashboard. I’m very happy with the resulting webcam preview feature and hope to add more at-a-glance functional very soon.
The new dashboard is live now! To use it, just sign into your OctoEverywhere account and you will be directed to it!
