The Almighty team has created some inline edit functionality for mobile and list views. Not sure if they fully apply to what you are looking for/working towards, but thought they might be helpful to share.
Here are a couple of examples places in our storage designs where we have done inline editing of list views (see attached). There are two use cases here - one for adding new items to a list (or a table) and another for editing parameters of an existing object represented in a list.
