SpreeGoogleBase

This extension allows you to use Google Base to list products for free that will appear in Google Product Search (http://www.google.com/shopping).

For product feed field definitions, (consult http://support.google.com/merchants/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=188494#US)

INSTALLATION

  1. Create google base account. Create google base ftp account (if applicable). Create data feed in google base with a type "Products" and name "google_base.xml".

  2. Install the extension with one of the following commands

    Add gem "spree_google_base", :git => 'git://github.com/jumph4x/spree-google-base.git' to Gemfile Run bundle install Run rails g spree_google_base:install Run rake db:migrate

  3. Edit product_type, priorities in spree admin (/admin/taxon_map)

  4. Set preferences in spree admin panel (/admin/google_base_settings) for the feed title, public domain, feed description, ftp login and password. FTP login is not required - you may schedule upload from the public directory.

  5. Issue the command bundle exec rake spree_google_base:generate_and_transfer to generate and upload the feed.

If you receive an error 501 Syntax error in parameters or arguments, the FTP server is angry at you for not configuring your username\password correctly.

ADVANCED CONFIGURATION

You can modify fields set for export and list of 'g:' attributes. Just create\modify config/initializers/google_base.rb and override values of GOOGLE_BASE_ATTR_MAP and GOOGLE_BASE_FILTERED_ATTRS arrays with help of Array#delete, Array#delete_at, Array#<<, Array#+=, etc. Also you can override methods from product_decorator.rb in your site extension.

CRONJOBS

There are two options to regulate google base product update:

A) Setup cronjobs to run 'rake spree_google_base:generate' and 'rake spree_google_base:transfer'
