I once built a simple jobs board with google sheet as the database and google forms as a way to collect data.

That's actually how I set up comments on my now-ancient personal site (static and built a long time ago with Foundation v5 and an old version of Assemble still based on grunt). I added an "approved" column to the Sheet not available in the form (a Handlebars partial which appended the page URL and submitted to Google Forms via AJAX), so I could moderate the comments in Google Sheets after getting an email of a new Google Forms submission.

It's so old that I don't think I ever got around to updating it after Google changed their CORS policy. Bloop.
