@timwis i was just starting to put one together!
my current project is this: https://github.com/editdata/submit-data
the goal of which is to have a form that can append a row to a json or csv file in a github repo
just started it so it's in prototype phase

i must say, i’m impressed with your toolset! yo-yo, tape, surge, standard… looks like we follow some of the same JS people on github :P
I was just trying out submit-data. Coincidentally, I implemented something really similar over the last week on JKAN (timwis.com/JKAN) - click edit on a dataset to see what i mean. as with yours, it doesn’t work unless you’re a collaborator on the repo, but you get the idea - just makes a commit on github, rebuilding the jekyll site.

oh nice JKAN is a great idea
i think submit-data should let people make a pull request without being a collaborator, though i guess i haven't tested that yet. i'll have to make a test account
