As a follow up on the question from Caroline -- doesn't look like we can use the existing product pop up picker. I see no way of being able to fire it without changing the initial view html (which I don't think I can tinker with post load either).
If someone else proves me wrong here I'd be happy to hear it, but until that point I've made a start on building a related product picker. Would you guys be happy enough for the items to get blasted into a single comma separated metafield?
//and if we decide to 'uninstall' it how would we do that?
Copy and paste, and bulk edits added. If anyone feels like testing this give it a whirl and let me know if something goes boom. I might need to build up a white-list of namespaces to not overwrite (seems like a sensible idea) so if there are some I should leave alone drop me a note.
Would it be of benefit to have a copy that only adds the missing fields, rather than overwriting the existing ones?
And a minor tweak for a request - option to show SKUs on listing page:
As a sidenote I am build a little port of this tool that will be handy for store owners. Theme developers would set a few metafields for what fields should appear, and they'll be shown in the admin section. It won't be quite a fancy as some of the custom builds I've done but should still be super useful.
Since the feature additions are slowing down for this (and thanks to Dave for reminding me) I've made a repo for it. Find it here. My site may still have the latest and greatest version but I don't want to hinder progress by keeping it a one man show.
I'll make a branch for the dev version and would welcome anyone to fork and issue pull requests as required.
