Plugin idea - Plex "Now Showing" on Dashboard

I use this to show what's currently streaming from Plex on my grafana dashboard:

I would LOVE it if someone could write a plugin that would show what's currently playing in Plex (text or poster) on the Unraid dashboard.

 

There are plenty of tasks that require us to stop the array, or stop docker from running (ie, networking changes, etc).  Before I do that, I always want to check to make sure nobody is currently watching Plex.  If I could see that on the Unraid dashboard instead of going through the steps to check Grafana or Tautulli, or Plex, it would be awesome.  I think lots of other people would find this useful.  Unfortunately I'm just not a strong enough programmer to write it myself.

 

Looking forward to discussions around this idea.

Can't help with this project but one suggestion is to add tautulli as a custom tab, that's how I quickly check if it's ok to reboot.

Oddly enough I just release/started working on this plugin and does exactly what you are looking for.  Open to any and all feedback.
