I am considering developing a module however, I wanted to discuss it first, get some ideas, recommendations and understand if there is anything that sort of does what I am looking to do...
Firstly, I have a number of websites which all sell similar products. What I want to avoid is having to recreate the same product list in every website. The product list is about 15 - 20 items but the description, options and inclusions is quite extensive...
At the moment, I have replicated the same stuff over the websites but everytime a product changes, I need to modify it over the multiple websites... Painful!
What I want to do is as follows:
- use a module similar to the Gocart module
- create an xml feed of the Gocart products
- create some type of module to read and interpret xml
- display unique formatting over the top of the data
Therefore, I maintain one single database of products and then each individual site, reads, formats and displays the data however it chooses.
Any advice, guidance, recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
