Sum of timespent on a custom field



On my workflow, I have a field that contains the time spent on an issue. 

My main idea is to make a report of sum of time spent each month from all the issues.

I can get these informations (time spent, time remaining) from agregate functions or by exporting by Excel file, but I want to show these details on a gadget in a Dashboard. 
I don't know how to develop a gadget and it seems to be difficult.


I have an another idea.
When we close the issue, call a groovy script that:

  1. Get the value of a custom field containing the time spent on this issue
  2. Get the value of a custom field containing the total time spent for the current month
  3. Add time spent to total time spent
  4. Update the custom field total time spent


Could someone help me please?
