Octoprint (1.3.6 MG fork) Plugin Incompatibility

Post by MaineSpring » Fri Oct 08, 2021 4:31 pm

Although this subject has been alluded to in other threads, I have not found one that addressed it directly. Is there a way to tell before installation whether an Octoprint plugin is compatible with MG's fork of Octo? I bricked a Pi on an M3-ID trying to install my favorite plugins, thus learning the hard way that few of them play nicely with MG's Octoprint.

Also, I tried to reverse the function by installing the MG setup plugin on Octoprint 1.6.1, but can't get it to enable.

There are several functions native to 1.6.1 that are not in 1.3.6, so the switch to MG has left me without capabilities I assumed would be native, but aren't.
