Import Data to Drupal

August 30, 2011

Might do some disassembly on this http://drupal.org/project/ocupload in order to allow for XML upload for aggregation

Write a custom module which ‘sucks’ in say 50 articles at a time (to relieve the strain on the server), use hook_cron; http://api.drupal.org/api/5/function/hook_cron

Also building modules at: http://drupal.org/node/1074360

Looking at Feeds module as a means of importing data to nodes. This module requires the following modules in order to work:

  • Views
  • Panels
  • Advanced_help
  • Features
  • CTools

OK getting closer, able to programmatically do nodes thanks to: http://drupal.org/node/889058

Feeds: Aggregating from RSS/Atom from Development Seed on Vimeo.
