An ExpressionEngine Module that allows easy import of data into ExpressionEngine. Built in import capabilities are from CSV files to all base ExpressionEngine fieldtypes and Playa. However, it is easily extended to allow additional import types and custom fieldtypes.
This module steps you through a wizard interface where you can select where the data is input and if there are existing relationships between the data being input and data already in the system.
This allow anyone to easily input and update the data, without technical knowledge. Simply set up your sections, assign a fieldgroup (if necessary) and run the wizard for each set of input information.
Input types differ, as do the fieldtypes being sumbitted to. This module makes it easy to add new code to deal with these unforeseen inputs and fieldtypes.
A guide on updating input types and fieldtypes can be seen in the GitHub readme notes.
You can help make this module even more useful by adding your code for any new data input types and fieldtypes you develop!

If the add-on is an extension, and ties into ExpressionEngine's core files, it will use ExpressionEngine hooks. We are listing any hooks the add-on uses for developers to have an easier time locating other add-ons that they can reference for their own work.
