Hello! I didn't see something like this here. You can check GitHub in your search.
Also, i don't know exactly for now, but i believe you can make it using CDNs (content delivery networks), WebParser and some brains. :)

This skin might be your start point in your beginnings. It uses WebParser and cdn.amakai to parse info from steam. Sure, you need auto search, not static links, and i think it's still possible, even if it's much complicated than this skin is.
