Magmi is an incredibly powerful tool, however it was built by a developer for developers and has never been the easiest tool to use if you are not wired up in that same developer fashion.
What we have built for you here is a custom Magmi installer which not only make it incredibly easy to download but we have also re-themed Magmi entirely so it is much easier to use, sure and easy to understand.
Magmi is available for free under the MIT license and we are sticking with that mentality and releasing the UnderstandingE Magmi installation wizard for free too.
