Status of print job without using Cura

What's the best way to check on the status of the print without using Cura?

I don't like to keep Cura open because it makes my PC spin up loud, but I'd like to know time remaining, temperatures, etc.

I got the webcam streaming in a browser, so that's not a problem.

I can get the times with a bit of work using

 

[ip address]/api/v1/print_job

 

but I have to do calculations to change the seconds into hours, % remaining, etc.

And I can find temperatures in a similar way, but again not very user friendly.

Has somebody made a script or applet that does this?

    part of the info you are looking for is in the Ultimaker 3 app. Is that an option for you?

    True, it's a partial solution--the Android app gives time remaining, but no technical data like temp. Thanks for the suggestion. Still hoping for a web applet or something I can share with our team.

    Did you already discover /temperature.html ?

    Nice for the nerds among us :)

    You know what? That is cool!

    No, I only had found

    /api/v1/printer/bed/temperature

    But I'm still looking for a cura-style all-in-one monitor thing.

        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
