I'm hoping to gain some insight into how I might accomplish the
following. I have an XML file that contain my company's product tree.
The file is hierarchical and contains the following structure:
I need to import this file and automatically create Categories and
applicable SubCategories in my wiki on a scheduled basis, picking up
any changes that may have occurred over time.
How would one approach such a task?
My first thought is a script (PHP, Python, whatever) run periodically
using cron to parse the file and trigger Category/SubCategory
creation. Is this even possible?
My second thought is to create an extension to parse the file
periodically and create the Categories/SubCategories.
Any advice as to how to solve this would be appreciated.
