First toe in the water here.
We are the producers of a Windows POS software (NeoPOS) which uses a Postgre database.
It has now come to the point where we are getting many requests to link it to Magento.
Does anyone have any experience with this? Does something already exist to achieve this (a connector maybe)?
We don't want to re-invert the wheel so we want to know where to start.
Can we install mySQL on a local computer then connect to a remote magento database? (this would make it easy enough)
We may be interested in employing someone to do this for us on the basis that they would receive a commission on each installation we do? Anyone out there?
We are very experienced program developers , in the Windows environment, and have basic knowledge of XML/CSS but we don't want to do massive development effort when there is probably a relatively easy way to do what we want.
TIA for any help on this.
I recommend to use a Web API: http://devdocs.magento.com/guides/v2.0/get-started/bk-get-started-api.html
