Mergado 2: Elements

Mergado 2: Elements

New features on the Elements page make it easier for you to do several tasks at once - work with the feed, navigate in the tool, and filter in the elements. We have adapted the new options to the needs of shopping engines. Let’s describe them.

:muscle: The Elements page now allows you to:

  • manage immersion of elements
  • filter in attributes and multiple elements
  • wrap the element data into CDATA
  • distinguish case in element names (the current version cannot do this)
  • work with attributes
  • for each element, there can be any number of values ​​(currently only one value)
  • arrange the elements according to your own needs or format requirements

:woman_teacher: Differences between Mergado and Mergado 2

:one: How Mergado works (current version):

It can do basic things:

  • list of all elements
  • creation of a new element
  • hide/unhide element
  • list of element values
  • export element values ​​to CSV

It does not allow:

  • sorting elements
  • creation of immersed elements and attributes
  • wrapping into CDATA
  • display of semantics (description of elements)

:two: How Mergado 2 works:

  • The function and purpose of the site have not changed. It is still used for working with the feed elements and editing their properties.
  • We have modified the appearance to make the page easier to work with and to match the tree structure.
  • We have added features required by shopping engines that we could not implement until now.

:clipboard: What’s new on the Elements page:

1. area

  • element and origin searches remain
  • we added the option of input and custom filtering (here is the option of visibility, input, output, with values, and without values)

2. area

  • a completely new option for sorting elements
  • sorting is started via the drag and drop button - moving elements using the icon:
    symbol

3. area

  • after checking an element, the options will be displayed more visibly at the top, including new elements:
  • bulk actions remain
  • the new element is the collapsing of elements onto the parent:
  • the top bar collapses all children (collapse only applies to one element)
  • we added the possibility to edit manually created elements and attributes directly by their name
  • the new element is also the designation for the @ attribute – if you want to create a new one, use the Add element button, type @, and the creation will switch to the attribute

4. area

  • added elements include CDATA wrapping and the option to add an immersed element if the given format supports it (only for XML, not valid for CSV)
  • changing the icon for hiding the element from the eye to a “slider”
  • the values ​​of the element are now available by clicking directly on its name - previously the icon:
    symbol2
  • another option is to click on the count number in the list

5. area

  • we improved the search by highlighting the search text, the descendants of the element are displayed even if they do not match the search term
