Offline Things Display

Thanks for your feedback @rlkoshak, I wanted to ask for your opinion anyway after refining it a bit more.

I’m aware of the template Thing Status Reporting and first used it to implement this template. I then came to the conclusion, that it’s easier to implement that part myself. I feel the two templates only overlap as far as online/offline detection is concerned, is that right?

My aim is by no means to copy anyone and I just added a reference to your template in the description.
The goal of this template is to make it as easy as possible for users to supervise their Things without having to code themselves or creating complicated structures.

That’s a great input to use the generic event trigger, I wasn’t aware that’s possible and will change it accordingly.

The two templates I contributed are a direct response to our discussion in order to make it easier for users to create and use rules.

That’s all I want, to improve openHAB and make it better accessible.

I appreciate your feedback, please let me know what you think.
