You need a web server, a database and your leaderboard page. You create some apps, for example an Android and IOS game. At some point, user of a game gets some score. At that moment, you call your web server with HTTP POST request and add that players score to leaderboard. Server writes that score to database. Then you need your leaderboard page, which also calls the server (with HTTP GET request), and server returns it current leaderboard state from database. With this approach you can connect any number of players on different platforms. To code this, I would use something eazy like python SimpleHttpServer with MySQL dabase and ajax calls from javascript.
