I wanna create my own products from an external db and create magento products.
The first time to import all products and then update the stock every x minutes.
First I created a CSV file to import it ever x minutes. This caused problems for configurable products, for example color: red but the color attribute didn’t know the value red. Looking for an answer I found a script which could create attributes, the script uses the Mage.php file.
This changed mind, I wanna create a php script using Mage.php to create products and update for example the stock and prices.
Can some tell me where to find more info about the Mage.php file? Class / function references?
Should I create a script using mage.php or need I to learn how to use the API?
I’m looking for the opinion of current users and I wanna know if it’s possible to create attribute values using the API.
