FeedAPI2Feeds migration script ------------------------------ Source: FeedAPI 1.8 or later in 1.x branch Destination: Feeds 1.0 (built for 6.x-1.0-alpha9) http://drupal.org/project/feedapi http://drupal.org/project/feedapi_mapper http://drupal.org/project/feeds Purpose ------- This module migrates FeedAPI settings and data to Feeds. Be aware that Feeds does not support per-feed configuration, so you will definitely LOSE all your per-feed configuration. You need to manually create additional Feeds importer configurations when a specific per-feed configuration is essential. Scope ----- Supported: - FeedAPI Node - FeedAPI Fast - Parser Common Syndication - Parser SimplePie - Parser Ical http://drupal.org/project/parser_ical (6.x dev version) Partially supported: - Feed Element Mapper: - only 1.x - only per-content-type mappings - only for mapping sources and targets that are available in Feeds Not supported (known): - Per Feed Feed Element Mapper mappings. Beware that this script has not been extensively tested and depending on your configuration, settings may be lost. A close review of the results of the migration is indespensible. If you notice any unsupported settings, please report on the issue queue. http://github.com/lxbarth/FeedAPI2Feeds/issues Usage ----- 1. Back up your site and put it into maintenance mode. 2. After enabling FeedAPI2Feeds, go to the migration form on admin/build/feeds/migrate. 3. Check the FeedAPI content types that you would like to migrate (choose only those that are fully supported). 4. Turn off FeedAPI modules (do not uninstall). 5. Review migration, verify full functionality. 6. Uninstall FeedAPI modules. Alternatively, migration can be started with drush. Type "drush help" on the command line for more information. http://drupal.org/project/drush What will the script do? ------------------------ The script creates one importer for each FeedAPI-enabled content-type, selects and configures the appropiate parser and processor for it. After this, it disables FeedAPI for the content-type. Then it copies all your FeedAPI feeds' and feed items' metadata to the proper Feeds database table. ALL your already existing data remains untouched. If you're satisfied with the migration you need to manually disable and uninstall the modules. The module saves the content-type configuration into renamed variables when it detaches them from the type, so after you're sure you do not need the old configurations, you need to delete them: mysql> DELETE FROM variable where NAME like "_backup_feedapi_settings%"; The script tries to convert the mappings as well from Feed Element Mapper, but beware, per-feed mappings are not supported.
