DataSync FeedAPI imports FeedAPI feeds using DataSync instead of with hook_cron.
There are several benefits to doing this:
- It prevents FeedAPI imports from timing out cron.php and ensures FeedAPI imports run on schedule even if another long-running hook_cron job is running.
- It allows you to specify different schedules for different feeds (eg. you can run one feed import every hour and another every day). Normally, FeedAPI runs on every cron run.
- You can use DataSync's error-handling support which will rollback all database changes in the case of an error and reschedule the feed import to rerun.
- You can extend the default DataSync FeedAPI job class to run your own custom jobs.
