A buildout recipe to install OpenERP

Project description

This is a buildout recipe to download, install and configure OpenERP.

Recipe options :

zc.recipe.egg options

This recipe reuses the zc.recipe.egg recipe, so the options are the same (eggs, interpreter, etc.) Consult the documentation here

specific options

It also adds a few specific options :

  • version: specify the version of OpenERP
  • url : specify the download url for the server
  • script_name: specify the name of the startup script for the server

OpenERP options

You can also add the same options as the ones in the .openerp_serverrc option, such as netrpc_port, netrpc_interface, db_host, db_port, etc. The OpenERP server configuration is generated by OpenERP itself in the buildout etc directory at the first buildout run.

Generated script :

A startup script for the server is created in the bin/ directory. By default the name is: start_<part_name>, so you can have several startup script for each part if you configure several OpenERP servers. You can pass additional arguments to the server via the startup script, such as -i or -u options.

Example buildouts:

The simplest possible buildout is:

parts = openerp

recipe = anybox.recipe.openerp
version = 6.0.2

A more robust buildout with version specifications, and 2 OpenERP servers using only XMLRPCs and listening on 2 different ports:

parts = openerp1 openerp2
allow-picked-versions = false
versions = versions
find-links =

MarkupSafe = 0.15
PIL = 1.1.7
anybox.recipe.openerp = 0.3
caldav = 0.1.10
coverage = 3.5
distribute = 0.6.19
feedparser = 5.0.1
gp.vcsdevelop = 2.2.1
lxml = 2.1.5
mako = 0.4.1
nose = 1.1.2
psycopg2 = 2.4.2
pychart = 1.39
pydot = 1.0.25
pyparsing = 1.5.6
python-dateutil = 1.5
pytz = 2011h
pywebdav =
pyyaml = 3.10
reportlab = 2.5
vobject = 0.8.1c
z3c.recipe.scripts = 1.0.1
zc.buildout = 1.5.2
zc.recipe.egg = 1.3.2

recipe = anybox.recipe.openerp
eggs = PIL
version = 6.0.2
xmlrpc = False
netrpc = False

recipe = anybox.recipe.openerp
eggs = PIL
version = 6.0.2
xmlrpc = False
netrpc = False
xmlrpcs_port = 8171


The primary branch is on the launchpad:


0.3 (08-08-2011)

  • fixed config file creation

0.2 (08-08-2011)

  • Pass the trailing args to the startup script of the server

0.1 (07-08-2011)

  • Initial implementation for the OpenERP server only
