I don't know of any such addon.

I use
image-temp: latest
in the master.conf so that the latest image directory is always called
"latest", which makes it very easy to check. (That gets renamed to the
normal naming scheme when a new image is made.)

Your webpage should look into the summary file of the latest image, and
see if the Status is "success". The date is also conveniently written
into the summary file so you can check whether it's recent enough.
