A good first step might be to develop a simple library (possibly as simple
as a function or a class) that fetches the data from STEP. Then you could
have a single PHP class, Java class, Python class, Ruby class, etc that
fetch the data from STEP and anyone could use a class like that to
trivially write a plugin like you're describing.
