I suspect from what you say that GitHub is not what you want in this case. However, I just wanted to clarify that you can download files as a Zip file (e.g. for Cooper Hewitt https://github.com/cooperhewitt/collection/archive/master.zip), and that this link is towards the top left on each screen in GitHub. The repository is a public one (which is the default, and only option unless you have a paid account on GitHub) and you do not need to provide email addresses or anything else to access the files on a public repository
