Clients Parser
The Clients module provides the ability to implement pluggable clients to external web services, including external Drupal sites running the Services module.

Processors (plugins that process the data for Drupal)

NB: Core processors are:

  • Node processor - Create nodes from parsed content.
  • Taxonomy term processor - Create taxonomy terms from parsed content.
  • User processor - Create users from parsed content.
  • Feed Node processor - Create Feed nodes from parsed content.

Node Multisource
The module provides a Feeds processor that allows you to import data into existing nodes that have been created by a "parent" feed.

Data
Storage engine for feeds in database tables. Use feeds_entity_processor to store data once the table is marked as an entity using data.module.

Atom

Self Node Processor
Allows a feed node to populate its own fields from the content in a feed.

Web Services Client for Feeds
Includes a minimal alternative Node (Unique) Processor. This removes the constraint that all nodes must be 'owned' by their single source feed importer, and allows you to update or extend data on one target node from multiple different feeds at once, as long as the GUID is in common. It would also help eliminate duplicates when aggregating from multiple sources that may supply the same item.

RedHen processor
Process RedHen contacts and organizations.

Helper modules

Feeds Tamper
This module allows you to modify data (replace or filter) before it gets saved with a processor.

Feeds Crawler
Pages through a feed, allowing you to pull in older items that are not in the initial feed.

  • Provides actions on feeds for bulk or triggered modifications and
  • Provides processors capable of creating records in multiple tables, per input row.

Feeds Tamper: String to ID
A more versatile alternative to feeds_entityreference and entityreference_feeds in that it just lets you quickly take feeds data (eg a string) and convert it into an entityreference based on title match (not GUID or other feeds import rules).

Feeds Import Preview
This module allows you to see what your source looks like after it has been parsed.
Currently marked as experimental because it defines no permissions yet.

Feeds Quick Mapping
Allows you to edit and add mappings by typing it out comma separated in a textarea field. Intended for more advanced users as you could break your mapping config if not used carefully.
Currently marked as experimental because it defines no permissions yet.

  2. clear the cache (admin/settings/performance), otherwise the option is still hidden
  3. the plugin is now available when you edit or add a feed in the respective tab (fetcher/parser/processor).
