Here is a super simple widget that just displays a time in a more visually appealing way, I could see throwing this on the corner of your master layout much like many people do with the logged in user name.
Makes the formatting incredibly easy to make flexible. I have found it challenging to use this approach to something where you want to dynamically add to the SVG being displayed (for something like a checklist that needs to add or remove elements based on the user input), but I have seen it done, so its certainly possible.
Note: This widget hasn’t gone through Tulips code review process, so use it at your own risk
