Has anyone done an external scrum board with API's?



I'm not a web designer, so my knowledge on this topic is limited. 

We are looking into creating a web based scrum board that mimics how our current physical scrum board looks like, and we want to push events to JIRA and pull information from JIRA using their API's.

It's mainly a visual representation of the current JIRA-board that we have, but we want to have everything that happens on "our" board to also happen on our JIRA-board.

The plan is to add other functionality to "our" board that isn't related to JIRA, which are one of the reasons why we want to create our own solution.


I'm not to fond of reinventing the wheel, so I'm wondering if anyone has done anything similar that I can talk to?


Any "tips and tricks" and "do's and don't's" are welcome!
