One of the most requested features for the new Elgg has been a generic way to import and export data. Users want to free their data, and be able to move their profiles between installs.
Quite right, and over the next few days I will be working on this…
…Actually, Elgg1’s new object model actually should make this fairly easy.
Under Elgg1 all entities have a unique identifier, so plugin authors will be able to add extra information to export and import. So, if you were to export a user or a site you will be able to get everything that you have access to.
I think this should be pretty cool.
