So I've been busy hacking away at the dashboard for a project that required the ability to manually run jobs from the dashboard.
It was designed for my needs, so may not suit everyone. However, I decided to break it out and make it a module that allows anyone to extend their dashboard. You can get it on Git (Hangfire.Core.Dashboard.Management)
It's working but still needs some tweaking. There are some things that could have been much easier if the Core had some more publically exposed classes. Anyway, it'll probably see some more changes over the next week as I work it into actual use in production environment.
