Mobile Friendly UX

When Automate UI is rendered on a mobile device (or, at least mobile devices with a relatively small screen like phones) it is pretty much unusable as it’s difficult to navigate. So I think it would be nice if the UX were optimized for mobile devices. Even if it means that the rendered page views contained only a subset of the features available when viewed on a desktop browser, I still think it would be nice.

There have been occasions where I am AFK but want to quickly check the status of a specific node on my phone and in order to do so (and make the UX actually navigable; i.e. without text overlapping itself or other such wonky renderings) I’ve been having to rotate my phone to landscape and then zoom out the browser view to as much as I can.

Not super high priority/impact as I assume that few folks want to check Automate on a mobile device but I still think it would be a nice feature-add. M
