Magento Catalogue Import Script
A generic Magento to Crystallize import script aiming to assist with importing the Magento catalogue in a cleaner and faster structure.
As the Magento product catalogue expands, it also becomes more complex, making even simple actions like associating a product to multiple categories difficult to maintain. Same goes with an integration to another system, or migrating from it.
Since importing a catalogue might be a very time consuming process, we have set up a single SKU import script command. This gives you the ability to test things like, creating a product shape that fits your information architecture, and start building bottom to top.
Import a single product by running:
SKU=*your_sku* yarn run single
Import the entire catalogue by running:
yarn run import
The import script follows Crystallize’s modern topic-based approach. Multiple categories can be associated to products by creating them as topics. Starting from top to bottom, the script will create a tree topic-structure and tag products with topics based on naming.
These can be specified as arguments in index.js file. The script behaviour can be altered in these files:
- lib/crystallize/index.js (createTopics)
* Notice that by default the topics generated by the categories passed as arguments will not be included in the catalogue structure.
