Is there a wayto get the current ingame time from a minecraft server from the web?, does a plugin exist that can do this? Or would I need to create my own?

Minequery sends some basic info, could it be extended to get more?

What you are looking for is Dynmap. We have it on our server to provide multiple features such as:

The current version of Dynmap provides an in-browser map, like Google Maps, of your Minecraft world. It updates the map in realtime while you have your browser opened and shows the current players, regions and in-game messages on top of the map. It also allows viewers of the map to chat from within their browser with players in-game.

This mod does show in game realtime on the server. See here for more more details, download URL, and installation instructions.

Seems a little much JUST to get the game time.. – Ezra Apr 26 '12 at 9:38

There are probably simpler plugins which achieve the same thing, but with the bukkit plugin essentials, there is the command /time, which gives the time in the world. coupled with a script such as (this example only works if server is running command-line inside the linux program screen) it could be possible to output the time into a web browser.

Dynmap can do this as Foxtrot said. However you can get something to show everything, such as Most kills/users online. Everything.

Statistician v2 can do that for you.
