I'm trying to follow the tutorial here to visualise markers through a web GUI and noticed that tf2_web_republisher is not available as a ROS Noetic package. Does anyone know if this is planned or whether I could view the markers in a web GUI in Noetic using a different method?

Seems there is an issue tracking this on the tf2_web_republisher issue tracker: RobotWebTools/tf2_web_republisher#30.

Excellent! Hope this is available soon!

Seeing as the issue was opened on Jun 3, 2020 and hasn't really seen any progress since, I'm not too optimistic you'll see a release soon.

You could opt to build it in a Catkin workspace yourself. It's not too difficult.

See #q252478 for an example workflow.
