Migrate a Blogspot Blog (XML Data) to D8


Migrate API is in D8 core, but does not support Migrations from XML out of the box. XML is quite generic form of data export and is used by many sites / systems. For example Wordpress, Tumblr, Movable Type (Typepad) and many other systems allows their content to be exported to XML format.

We would be taking an example of a Blogspot Blog, exported in XML, and migrate it onto Drupal 8. We would be assuming that the user has already done the site building and is migrating data from XML to the site.
