The Feeds module provides the capability to ingest data from any number of different sources and transform it into native Drupal constructs. It’s a versatile tool that can be used for things such as large-scale data migration, automatically populating a block of recent content from external sites, or synchronizing content posted among multiple sites. In this lesson we'll learn how Feed importers are created with the three main pieces of Fetchers, Parsers, and Processors.
