If I were to play around with creating an importer, which existing importer should I reference as a representation of the current best practices?

I guess it depends on what type of content you want to import, and
which auth protocol (if any) the site uses.

I’m mostly just wanting to grok the flow of them right now. From following the project it seems the importers have evolved a bit over time and I’m assuming they haven’t all been equally kept up-to-date. For example I noticed they don’t all support running periodically without manually triggering them.

fwiw, I go back to the twitter one when I want to remind myself of how
things work. I think the algorithms are pretty similar in most, and
rather straightforward. The hard parts are "details" like OAuth, as
well as handling errors and retries gracefully.
What differentiates twitter from the others is the special "import
from a zip archive" case.

Thanks! That's exactly what I was looking for.
