Downloads Latest Version License

OERPLib is a Python module providing an easy way to pilot your OpenERP and Odoo servers through RPC.

Features supported:
  • XML-RPC and (legacy) Net-RPC protocols,
  • access to all methods proposed by a model class
    (even browse) with an API similar to the server-side API,
  • ability to use named parameters with such methods (server >= 6.1),
  • user context automatically sent (server >= 6.1) providing support
    for internationalization,
  • browse records,
  • execute workflows,
  • manage databases,
  • reports downloading,
  • inspection capabilities (graphical output of relations between models and
    dependencies between modules, list on_change methods from model views, …).

How does it work? See below:

import oerplib

# Prepare the connection to the server
oerp = oerplib.OERP('localhost', protocol='xmlrpc', port=8069)

# Check available databases

# Login (the object returned is a browsable record)
user = oerp.login('user', 'passwd', 'db_name')
print(            # name of the user connected
print( # the name of its company

# Simple 'raw' query
user_data = oerp.execute('res.users', 'read', [])

# Use all methods of an OSV class
order_obj = oerp.get('sale.order')
order_ids =[])
for order in order_obj.browse(order_ids):
    products = [ for line in order.order_line]

# Update data through a browsable record = "Brian Jones"

See the documentation for more details and features.
