When discovering things using the Paper UI it would make sense to be able interact with the thing without creating items.
Currently Configuration / Things only shows the things and channels but not the channel states. It is also not possible to send commands to a channel.
Is this something that can be done? I think it would make the UI experience better for a beginner. Of course at some point you will want to create items but I think this should rather be an optional step than necessary to do anything with the things.
