hello! I just found datapackages and I think it's an awesome way of dealing with all the overwhelming amount of data out there. Very cool project(s)! I have a quick question regarding usability: is there a CLI for creating/finding datapackages? The use case I have in mind is of a user not tech-savvy that wants to package a dataset but doesn't want to manually create the JSON file for his/her dataset.
Something like someone pointing the CLI tool to a URL/folder and the tool introspects the reference in order to determine what type of dataset it is and then creates the datapackage.json file for them.
