API: HTTP server for getting traffic and controller info

I would like to make a map with real-time VATSIM traffic in a browser on another computer than my flight sim. I can't use VATSIM's API because it's only updated every 2 mins and I would like to have it every couple of seconds. Therefore, since vPilot already have the information there is no need to bother VATSIM servers, and I thought it would be really neat if vPilot could have a little simple HTTP server (or WebSocket) built in, from which anyone with a bit of web programming knowledge could easily pull out information like traffic and controller info and build their own little creative apps. Could that be a possibility?

Or is there some other way I could get traffic data? At the moment I only know high-level programming (web technologies).
