This pre-processor parses an .xlsx file (or similar feed) with products for a Magento import, specifically Magmi. The headers can be mapped to predefined functions and variables which makes it very configurable. After that, they can be mapped back to the necessary entity's for Magmi / Magento or any other importer. It also finds and links images, modifies prices, makes couples in simple and configurable products and detects which attributes to use and so on, validate input etc. It's basically a matter of writing the extra logic you need in the designated class and map some values in yaml files. Most frequent used functions and validations are already there. The pre-processor is the result of a project that kept changing it's specs which made it complex and bloated. I recently did a complete refactor which made it pretty useful. It processes ~50k products with each 40 attributes, images, simple / configurables etc. in 5 minutes. I will expand it's features whenever i need and maybe open-source it soon.
