I've done something like that for the VieMud code.  It is actually a
semi-web server (complete with robots.txt file).  It dumps out help file
entries and a who list.  On request, not every minutes (or whatever).

This is essentially how the help stuff works.  It builds the page served
based on the current help file details that the game itself knows about
(ie, the same stuff you can get from the 'help' command in-game).

Some of the other things that you suggest, I'm not entirely certain should
be trusted to the web at all.  There are _much_ better methods of doing
things such as coding than a web-based interface.
