This has been a small nightmare 🙂
You are in for a treat, static websites are back from the dead (they never left, but were not prominent nor sexy). Combine this with the cheapness of file hostings like S3 and you have a winner here.
This plugin was available via my github on a clone and copy fashion.
Yesterday I stopped being lazy and fixed that, The plugin is now available directly from the QGis plugin servers. And can be installed from Qgis itself.
Although I’m late as always since It does not work on 3.x versions.. oh well (look at this changelist!).
I was planning to write a post of how to write a simple GTK application indicator. But there’s a really good explanation already from
candidtim that you can follow. It is actually very well explained.
What I’ll do instead is just drop here an update to the Tenma DC 72-2540 command line tool that can be found in the tenma-serial github repo. It is the
gtkIndicator.py script, that more or less looks like this:
And note that you can create a small
.desktop file, so your desktop environment knows about it 😀

I daily work with a DC power supply to run different boards and prototypes. One day, plugging in the power supply I realized there was a USB and a COM port!
It is not correct from a tinkerer’s to avoid this option. So this day ended up with a small Python program (also golang, but that’s a different story) to use this feature.
