Comprehensive import and export tools for Spree and Spree Products

README.markdown

DataShift Spree

Specific loaders and command line tasks for Spree E-Commerce.

Wiki here : https://github.com/autotelik/datashift_spree/wiki

Versions

The loaders have been tested with 0.11, 1.3 and 2.2

The specs have been designed to use an internal Spree sandbox so it is very easy to change the Spree version and run the specs. See Testing section below.

Features

Import and Export Spree models through .xls or CSV files, including all associations and setting configurable defaults or over rides.

High level rake and thor command line tasks for import/export provided.

Specific loaders and command line tasks provided out the box for Spree E-Commerce, enabling import/export of Product data including creating Variants with different count on hands and all associations including Properties/Taxons/OptionTypes and Images.

Loaders can be configured via YAML with over ride values, default values and mandatory column settings.

Many example Spreadsheets/CSV files in spec/fixtures, fully documented with comments for each column.

Installation

Requires datashift.

Add to bundle :

gem 'datashift'
gem 'datashift_spree'

Create a high level .thor file - e.g mysite.thor - in your applications root directory

require 'datashift'
require 'datashift_spree'

DataShift::load_commands
DataShift::SpreeHelper::load_commands

To check the available tasks run thor list with a search term, for example

    bundle exec thor list datashift
    bundle exec thor list datashift_spree

New functionality and options under active development so check latest usage information via thor help <command> ... for example

    bundle exec thor help datashift_spree:load:products

Will print out usage and latest options like ...

Usage:
  thor datashift_spree:load:products -i, --input=INPUT

Options:
  -i, --input=INPUT                            # The import file (.xls or .csv)
  -s, [--sku-prefix=SKU_PREFIX]                # Prefix to add to each SKU before saving Product
  -p, [--image-path-prefix=IMAGE_PATH_PREFIX]  # Prefix to add to image path for importing from disk
  -v, [--verbose]                              # Verbose logging
  -c, [--config=CONFIG]                        # Configuration file containg defaults or over rides in YAML
  -d, [--dummy]                                # Dummy run, do not actually save Image or Product


   Populate Spree Product/Variant data from .xls (Excel) or CSV file

Testing

There are a number of specs to test this gem, located in the spec subdirectory.

To properly test this gem we require an actual Spree store, so when the specs are first run we create a sandbox Rails app, containing a Spree store, whose version we can control in spec/Gemfile

It's therefor recommended that all testing be done in spec dir itself, so first cd into spec

Define the version of Spree to test against, in the Gemfile, then run

    cd spec
    bundle install

If changing Spree versions, it's best to force a rebuild of a clean sandbox, and often removing Gemfile.lock will resolve any funny version issues, so run:

    cd spec
    rm -rf sandbox
    rm -rf Gemfile.lock

Change Gemfile versions and run

    bundle install

The next time you run rspec the sandbox will be regenerated using the latest versions of Rails/Spree specified in your Gemfile

    bundle exec rspec -c .
