Has anyone hacked together an import script from Socialengine to Discourse? I’d hate to reinvent the wheel here.
It doesn’t look like it. Can you get a database dump from them? If so, you can use one of the existing importers as a model. (See discourse/script/import_scripts at master · discourse/discourse · GitHub)
Yea, I didnt find anything either. Should be easy enough to import users and forums. I think forums/topics/posts become categories and their posts, and the users should just come across. I pull nightly backups from my site. I can load it into pgadmin and export out a CSV of the tables.
Most importers pull from an sql database. Most use mysql, but there may be a couple that use postgres. You definitely want to avoid csv.
