RPi-Monitor: Use labels to show servers status

RPi-Monitor version 2.7 introduces a new javascript function named Label.

The goal of this function is to add a colored text reflecting the status of a service.

This post is explaining how this new feature can be used.

Note: In version 2.10, a closing parenthesis ' ) ' is missing in the last line of  service.conf .
If you want to use this file as a source of your customisation, remember to add to fix this issue. It is already fixed in github repositories (and future releases).
