I will certainly have a look, but I didn’t see anything in the repo yet ?

As far as I remember, the plymouth scripting module that we use only supports 
bitmaps and simple manipulation like resize and rotation and alpha. I even 
have a doubt that you can use basic colored shapes, I think not (or import 
them as bitmaps, obviously).

Anything that more or less maps to these operations will be easy to reproduce.
Anything else will be difficult, require generating as many bitmaps as you 
need shapes…

Happy hacking,
