APIs to affect UX on Github site

Hello GitHub Support Community World,

It would open many possibilities if apps could affect the UX of the github.com web app. For example, it might be able to add metadata to the listing for each contributor in the contributors page.

However, I have not found any APIs which can do this. As far as I can tell APIs enable reads, but not writes. An app is limited to relatively passive activity like getting events, reading repos, reading issues, and running CI-type scripts.

Would you agree?
