Posted · UM3 Linux apps / plugin system?

The Ultimaker3 will run Linux on it's onboard computer. Are there any plans for an app / plugins system?

First ideas for plugins:

Automatically live stream every print to a (private) youtube video

See:

Automatic timelapse creation

Running an app on the onboard computer might mean we can make nicer timelapses, for example taking a picture at the start of every layer. I'm hoping this means the head is on a more consistent position.

Maybe the timelapses could be stored on the Memory stick?

Easy remote access using vpn

See: https://ultimaker.com/en/community/23534-remote-monitoring-control

These could be apps, published on a custom repository (ppa).
