Feeds and Migrate were two primary contrib modules used for data import since early versions of Drupal. Quick comparison of two modules: Feeds module has great friendly UI that allows site builders configure and import data, Migrate is built for developers with power to perform complex backend data processing but UI for this module was less than ideal.
Starting D8 migrate module is in core to support one-click upgrades from earlier Drupal versions – great news. In the hallway of Baltimore DrupalCon two years ago maintainers of Feeds and Migrate started conversation about using migrate engine to power Feeds UI – seems to be a win-win solution for everyone – developers, site builders, content managers, end users. Today we will demo what has been completed, and what still needs to be done, and how everyone in Drupal community benefits from this effort.
Session Takeaway: Comparison of current status of Feeds and Migrate in Drupal 8 and discussion about work that has been completed and work that still needs to be done on Feeds_Migrate module https://www.drupal.org/project/feeds_migrate.
Expected Attendees: This session is designed for back end developers, site builders, content managers and strategists who are planning overall site development.
