Kian

Digesting business requirements and challenges, and developing solutions for existing web apps.

Background.

Kian is a furniture company that's been modernizing their website and admin processes. Their website is built with Django-Oscar and deployed to Heroku. They have thousands of products documented in excel sheets, that they want to be able to upload in one go.

Solution.

Write a Celery task module that:

  • Allows the user to utilize all CRUD actions, through identifiers in the CSV file.
  • Validates and sanitizes incoming data.
  • Informs the user of actions performed through logging.
  • Create a read-only dry run version of the import process, so the user can identify input errors.
  • Display importer progress within the admin dashboard.
