Project description

License: LGPL-3


This is a framework designed to build connectors with external systems, usually called Backends in the documentation.


It features:

  • A jobs queue

    In which the connectors can push functions (synchronization tasks) to be executed later.

  • An event pattern

    The connectors can subscribe listener functions on the events, executed when the events are fired.

  • Connector base classes

    Called ConnectorUnit.

    Include base classes for the use in connectors, ready to be extended:

    • Synchronizer: flow of an import or export
    • Mapper: transform a record according to mapping rules
    • Binder: link external IDs with local IDS
    • BackendAdapter: adapter interface for the exchanges with the backend
    • But ConnectorUnit can be extended to accomplish any task
  • A multi-backend support

    Each ConnectorUnit can be registered amongst a backend type (eg. Magento) and a backend version (allow to have a different Mapper for each backend’s version for instance)

It is used for example used to connect Magento and Prestashop, but also used with Solr, CMIS, …
