I don't see why we would. Why do you ask?
SMF to NodeBB
new version delayed 1 or 2 days, I keep finding more work to get done.
no worries on that.
for tracking purposes https://github.com/akhoury/nodebb-plugin-import/issues/50
For those following this thread.
I just did an import recently, and the latest import seems to be working great.
There is even a new import interface. Do check it out!
@bentael Has the export process changed? Do I still create individual files for each category, topic, post, and user?
@julian no need to do anything.
Just install the plugin and use its interface from the ACP
You have to point it to the right DB (with credentials) and select the exporter from the list (populated via an npm search)
Also, the content conversion does not occur during the import anymore, it's provided with some post-import tools
Ah, so in that case, if I were building an importer for someone using custom software... any guides to follow? I'd much rather modify what I have so far, which is: currently dumping it all out into small little .json files.
it's really the same thing, except that you don't write to disk anymore.
there are many example, think this is the newest https://github.com/akhoury/nodebb-plugin-import-ipboard
the file dumps won't work anymore at least not with with -import 0.2.x version.
I can help you offline if you want, you know how to find me
but yea that's the guide
Can anyone describe how to do conversion from smf -> nodeBB as a noob in nodejs. I have working installation of NodeBB. I mean if i have mysql dump of smf then what to do next
