No, not a dumb question at all. It is actually the area I worried most about when sharing this project. I really want this to be an easy project for anyone to pickup and do. Basically, you want to be able to add the shared libraries to your Arduino IDE Library files so that other projects can see them and use them. You can search them up from the Library Manager in the Arduino IDE and if they don't show up in there, you can download them from the original source and import them via a zip file. I hope that helps.
The 3D Printer Monitor code does not use the button (or at least right now). I have other projects that I have not shared publicly that do. I use this station for many projects. Good eyes though.
Basically there are supporting libraries that should be installed and visible to the Arduino IDE. Most can be searched up using the Library Manager in the Arduino IDE. If you can't find them in the Library Manager search then you can download them and load them via a zip file.
This uses OctoPrint -- and that already gives you full control on your Desktop with a web interface. This Wemos version simply displays status from the OctoPrint server.
