Automated imports and Attributes
I just found this project while looking around Ubercart. So I am not really up to speed on the differences and capabilities. Sorry.
I am working with a client on a project that will have several "wrinkles".
First, they sell several items with different colored fabrics. This should work like traditional product options where the user must choose a color. Some colors have pricing variances too. The client will need nice images associated with each color. Is this something Commerce handles (maybe cleaner than Ubercart)?
Secondly, the client needs to be able to update pricing through an unattended, automated process. We will have on our end a script that downloads a csv of all product data. Some custom php code processes that csv and ..... then what? Are there hooks for doing this, or is manhandling the database a better solution. (I started looking at the way Ubercart databased attributes, and didn't like what I saw at a quick glance.) Any ideas on how to handle this kind of thing?
