Does a Dynamic Latest Post Feed Plugin Exist?

I’ve had many user requests for a dynamic feed of the latest posts that regularly updates to show activity.

It should be easy enough to poll latest.json every minute & turn that into a dynamic list of activity.

My current approach would be to add a column to the right-hand side of the desktop version that has a simple, updated list of “Latest Posts”

However it seems like the sort of thing that someone might have already done & I don’t want to re-invent the wheel.

I’ve had a Google without any luck.

If someone knows of an existing plugin that fits what I’m after can you please point me in the right direct.
