Edited to add: mere days after I posted this, Quip added built-in support for spreadsheets. So…this is no longer useful. Oh well.
Looks over your recently-edited Quip documents. For each doc with "Tabular" in the name, find the first table in the document, save that table's data as a .TSV file (import format for Spreadsheets). Nice for the case in which several folks want to collaborate on gathering data "in the field" on their phones, but you eventually want to crunch that data in a spreadsheet.
