Bulk creation of product variations (existing products)


This is the situation:

I have a Kickstart2 profile installation with a number of products and their displays imported by feeds.

What I want to do next is create some variations for those existing products.

Example I imported a shoe, now I want to add more sizes (variations)

Already looked at commerce bulk product creation but I seems to have a lot of issues.

Any better ideas or somebody that can help me. Maybe point me in the right direction to create my own module.

There is no generic module to handle this (aside from commerce_bpc) at the moment.

You will need to write a custom script (or run some PHP via VBO) that will generate and save the product variations for you, manually (or, write the generic module :) But the fact that it's not available shows that it's not an easy goal, especially UI-wise. Inline Entity Form has some mockups in the issue queue and an initial patch at https://drupal.org/node/1777254 but I don't know how solid it is).
