And I just thought of this one: I'm about to take my nodemcu offline to do some more coding. Some folk do have the url though, and may go for a look while it's down. A "down for maintenance" message would be nice.

While this is a temporary solution, it might be what's easiest for now - you can add a text element to your dashboard to show when it's offline.

I would like to have a selectable time axis in line charts without editing the dashboard.
Right now I created several dashboards with different time scales for each topic.
Radio buttons on the right would be really handy, or a drop down list on the bottom of the line chart

How about an RGB LED that takes 16-bit (Adafruit GFX) or 24-bit RGB info, plus a "blink rate" expressed as 0-255 units (0 is always on, 255 is blinking rapidly, figure out what the intermediate values mean)

Show min/max values on the dial indicator ( as an arc in the outer ring) with a reset button

Settable hi/low danger values on the dial indicator, which synchronize with triggers or autogenerate them

IFTTT applet icons and status

Data rate vs limits / throttling mountain chart


Great setup - can't wait to see next versions come out!

We recently added an indicator block which may be similar to what you're asking for: https://io.adafruit.com/blog/notebook/2 ... rd-blocks/

I asked this as a question on Discord, but maybe it's a request:
Linechart for boolean and other discrete/integer values. The current one averages all the 1's and 0's over time which is nonsensical. I want a chart that looks like a square wave for booleans.

e.g. this is what my chart looks like for a motion sensor with a couple of scattered triggers in the night:
