Panoptes integration with tom toolkit

Dear all,
I was recently checking the tom-toolkit project, and got happily surprised to notice that there was a fork on the panoptes github:
https://github.com/panoptes/panoptes-tom

Unfortunately it looks like this repo was removed recently, so I was wondering, what is the status of integration with tom toolkit ? Are there some specific plugin that already exist to pull observations/help schedule observations from tom toolkit ?

I am not too well versed in the tom toolkit architecture yet, but, as someone working on a fork on panoptes, I find this project particularly relevant for distributed set of telescope driven by panoptes-like software.

Thank you in advance for your help !

Hi, I worked on the panoptes-tom project as part of a summer internship that I did with Project PANOPTES two years ago. The project is part of a long-term goal to develop a web-based scheduler, allowing members of the public to schedule observations on any of the PANOPTES units around the world. A copy of the repo can be found at https://github.com/wtgee/panoptes-tom. I have not worked on this particular project since that initial summer, as I have been more focused on helping to expand the scientific applications of Project PANOPTES (ie. observe fainter, variable stars). To my knowledge, there are currently no plugins that allow PANOPTES users to schedule observations from the tom-toolkit, but it is something to explore as PANOPTES gets more units on-sky. If you are interested in discussing the scheduler project further, you can reach me at jliberman@colgate.edu.
