Problem

There's a huge learning curve in adding for content right now, channels and playlists alike.

Potential Solution

A simple form where the details can be filled out, then a programmer can add it and let me know.

Eventually this would just automatically make a Pull Request.

Alternatives Considered

https://forestry.io/ is a full platform that can sit on top of static websites, but it's a heavy solution to right now.

Additional context

Part of the goal of this project is to teach people more about how to use the web to communicate.

While this can seem daunting, it's also a very empowering platform with regards to anyone being able to see how the internet is built and be a part of it.

But still, submission right now is over-the-top difficult.

@craiglonsdale is looking at using Netlify to create forms

Do we want a script that takes input and then modifies the channel.yaml or playlist.yaml (something in python or go)? Or do we want a link that leads to a form?

@awilson739 This issue is referring to the forms that end users will use, I have added this to the Submission Forms Project and assigned this to @craiglonsdale. Please let us know if you'd like to help out.

We also need developer side scripts and we have put together another project for this.
