Great to hear this!  If you have endpoint(s), feel free to add them / have
them added to our live deployments wiki page [1], which powers our live
deployments map [2].

There are numerous web options out there embedded in applications like
GeoNode and CKAN, however at the cost of all the associated machinery.

Having said this, as part of another project I'm involved in, we recently
released pygeometa [3] which supports creating ISO from a simple ConfigParser
file/object.  You could implement a simple Flask [4] based front end to
provide a form and saving logic, which would create a pygeometa
metadata object and then serialize to a metadata file as desired.  Or, even
better, publish directly to pycsw :)
