Printer HTTP Endpoint for printer status

Tags: 

Hi, I'm implementing a program in Go that is meant to interface with a Zebra print (GX420t). We're currently using an http endpoint to send data to the printer to be printed (http://<printer ip>/printer/pstprnt). I'm wondering if there also exists an endpoint where I can query the status of the printer, and get information like:
- number of jobs in the queue
- if the printer is out of paper
- if the printer is out of ink
- or just generally if its available and not in a bad state.

Thanks

Hi Jordan,

Currently there are a few ways to get status.  Unfortunately none of them are as simple as the basic post printing method you are using here.  The easiest is to use Browser Print.  There are several other options though.  Printing From Websites, Part 1
