Paster templates to create an Odoo module or instance using buildout

Project description

Collection of paster templates that can be used to quickly create an Odoo instance or module

Install the templates

You can either use:

pip install anybox.paster.odoo

or the same in a virtualenv:

virtualenv sandbox
source ./sandbox/bin/activate
pip install anybox.paster.odoo

or manually download the archive below, uncompress, and:

python install


This package depends on PasteScript, which will be installed as a dependency and which offers a pluggable command called paster. For more information on PasteScript, consult its documentation.

You can list all the available templates with:

paster create --list-templates

Creating an Odoo instance

This template will create an empty Odoo instance with an optional local module for client customizations. The Odoo version can be pulled from the bazaar branches of from the latest nightly build.

Run the paster command like this:

paster create -t odoo_instance

Then answer the questions, and run the commands given at the end.

You can then modify the buildout configuration file as needed. For this part, please consult the documentation of anybox.recipe.odoo

Creating an Odoo module

Once you have a running instance, you can create new modules in the addons directory. Run the paster command like this:

paster create -t odoo_module
