When consuming APIs or working with complex data in SCM systems or databases, frequently you want to grab the metadata and perform diff, grep, and other file-type comparisons on the data you’ve stored. Akamai’s API has a great way to access and update property metadata (management information for websites), but the API is designed mostly for configuration changes. Kirsten's customers asked if they could consume the information in a more user-friendly way, so she created a datastore using Git and several Git wrapper tools to allow them to explore the data in a way that was meaningful for them. There are many applications for this sort of solution – you will explore Kirsten's code example, and describe other use cases which can help your users work with the data in a quick and user friendly manner.
