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