EAV Attributes Unit (e.g. mm, ml, oz)

EAV Attributes Unit (e.g. mm, ml, oz)

Feature request from SRaromicon, posted on GitHub Sep 25, 2014

It would be great to get an extra field for attributes, that holds the unit of an numeric / decimal attribute.

Now you have to save every attribute, which has an unit like mm, oz or V, as an attribute of type varchar. In very large stores with more than 2000 attributes the varchar table becomes very large and the other tables are not used, because you need the unit of meassurement.

Also, it would be great if measurement attribute has automatic conversion between stores in different measurement system. E.g. 1 (inch) in Store A in imperial will be converted to 2.54 (cm) in Store B in metric automatically.

Who else would like this functionality? @ilol & I have this on our radar ( post 2.0 release; TBD at present ) but would like to get a feel for how many in the community would value this feature. Thanks!

I'd like to see this functionality in the form of attribute renderers. An attribute might have a unit, It might be an image, it might be a calculation. Is it an idea to implement frontend renderers for all the attributes?

I also need this.

I've developed an extension for this purpose. Unfortunately only for Magento 1.9. I'm working on this for Magento 2 but it seems to be more difficult to implement this solution in the new architecture.
