LocateMixin class enables plugins to "locate" stock items (or stock locations) via an entirely custom method.
For example, a warehouse could be arranged with each individual 'parts bin' having an audio-visual indicator (e.g. RGB LED and buzzer). "Locating" a particular stock item causes the LED to flash and the buzzer to sound.
Another example might be a parts retrieval system, where "locating" a stock item causes the stock item to be "delivered" to the user via a conveyor.
The possibilities are endless!
If a locate plugin is installed and activated, the InvenTree mobile app displays a button for locating a StockItem or StockLocation (see below):
Refer to the InvenTree source code for a simple implementation example.
