This article is aimed at developers looking to extend the PureClarity feed process in the Magento 2.x extension.

Extending the feed could be required if you have custom data that needs to be sent in the feed, or you'd like to override/change the data being sent already.

Extension points

Each feed type has 2 main classes you can extend upon.

Feed Data Handler - This gathers the data from Magento, using collections

Row Data Handler - This turns the Magento data into an array in the format required by the PureClarity Feeds process.

How to Extend

We recommend that you use plugins to extend the feed process.

The product feed row processing is also broken out into a few different child row data handlers, so that there isn't too much code in one class. These can also be extended individually if required.

These all live in the Pureclarity\Core\Model\Feed\Type\Product\RowDataHandlers namespace

Example

This example add a custom field of data to the product feed.

di.xml

<config>
<type name="">
<plugin name="\Pureclarity\Core\Model\Feed\Type\Product\RowData" type="\My\Module\Plugin\PureClarity\Product\RowDataPlugin" sortOrder="1" disabled="false" />
</type>
</config>

RowDataPlugin.php

namespace My\Module\Plugin\PureClarity\Product;

use \Pureclarity\Core\Model\Feed\Type\Product\RowData;

class RowDataPlugin
{
public function afterGetRowData(RowData $subject, $data)
{
// $data is the row of data for a product, to be sent to PureClarity
$data['MyCustomField'] = 'My Custom Value';

return $data;
}
}
