    Would this be prudent to use SilverStripe for? Link to this post

    I have a customer who needs to take a datafeed and import the feed into a db. Then each record in the feed would become an actual webpage that is not necessary listing on the nav tree.

    The datafeed could be large 1000+ records.

    They want to more or less auto generate the pages without having to manually create each page after an import took place.

    To add to this, they will need to be able to re-import the datafeed at specific time intervals (weekly).

    I'm wondering if Silverstripe is the best solution to do this. Right now they have a solution that generates pages via a url string but it is dynamic and and not easily managed.

    Your thoughts,

    ModelAdmin is pretty well suited to exactly that. If you setup a ModelAdmin for the datafeed, it includes importing abilities. As for displaying the dataobjects on the front end, you wouldn't need to manually create the page on the site you would just have a simple controller to display the object.
