ONIX Feed Integration

ONIX for Books is the international standard for representing and communicating book industry product information in electronic form. It was critical to the success of this project that as much of the day-to-day site maintenance as possible could be automated.

We worked with the Severn house team to understand the ONIX xml feed produced by their Biblio software and created a custom import process that syncs new entries and data changes on a regular basis.

The ONIX feed now drives the book listings, genres, author pages and series pages on the website.

As a nifty side-project we used javascript to generate complimentary background colours to go with each distinct book cover.
