Magento MadeEasy

Magento MadeEasy (MME) was developed by senior Pimcore developers at CoreShop Solutions LLC that simplifies and accelerates the bi-directional integration and communication with both the Magento Community and Enterprise editions 1.8+ and 2.0+. Now take full advantage of the MDM/PIM/DAM capabilities inherent in Pimcore and using the standard Magento API It automatically discovers categories, attributes and classes in Magento to create a folder structure in Pimcore modeling the data already existing in your Magento websites. This integration is done in just one step as compared to other integration efforts that require multiple steps and a lot of support.

The result is enhanced content and digital asset enrichment and management with all data consolidated in one centralized place for an improved and consistent user experience. Quickly enable an enterprise ready and open sourced PIM/DAM/MDM without a license cost.

MME creates the communication path between Magento 2 and Pimcore to allow these activities to take place:

 

  • Managing your Magento product information in Pimcore
  • Enriching product information by creating new attributes to suit your needs or by using existing ones
  • Publishing product information in Pimcore and exporting it to Magento with one click
  • Creating categories, building them in a tree and exporting them easily to Magento
  • Building up your media gallery, assigning assets and publishing it

When the plugin is installed, it creates a folder structure within Pimcore and the data classes that it uses like MagentoProfile, MagentoConnection, FieldCollections, and others. MagentoProfile is the main class to describe Product, Category mappings, attribute mappings, and more. Currently we support only one MagentoProfile and one Magento instance. MagentoConnection is a subclass of MagentoProfile and it represents Website. The plugin has more than ten CLI commands that can be used separately or can be combined into two commands for simplicity: create structure and import data.
