Python CSV to OpenERP importation library

Project description

csv2oerp is a simple tool to perform a data migration, through an OpenERP mapping bounded to a CSV file. You can easily order your data as the manner of OpenERP (models, fields). The structure of the mapping is simple and intuitive, you can also perform a pre-process on data being imported, omit it or just modify it.

Quick start

Import csv2oerp and some callbacks:

from csv2oerp import Import_session
from csv2oerp.fields import Column, Custom, Relation
from csv2oerp.callbacks import get_id, get_ids

Configure OpenERP connection:

host = ''
port = 8069
dbname = 'database'
user = 'admin'
pwd = 'admin'
csv2oerp.connect(host, port, user, pwd, dbname)

Create a new importation instance:

example_file = Import_session()

Set the CSV file to use:

example_file.set_input_file('example_file.csv', ',', '"', 'utf-8')

Define a custom callback(Field’s value pre-treatment):

def country_code(self, model, field, value, line):
    """Return the first two uppered characters from current column value
    return value[:2].upper()

Define your mapping to link both csv and OpenERP:

mapping = {
    # Define a base model (Always in list form)
    'res.partner.address': [

        # Custom field's value
        'type':         Custom('default', search=True),

        # Concatenated columns fields
        'street':       Column([7, 6]),
        'street2':      Column([8, 5]),

        # Simple fields
        'zip':          Column(9),
        'city':         Column(10),
        'cedex':        Column(68),
        'phone':        Column(14),
        'fax':          Column(15),
        'email':        Column(17),

        # Model's relation with dynamic insertion from OpenERP database
        # Not native object from OpenERP framework
        'region_id':    Custom(11, get_id('res.region', ['name']))
        'dep_id':       Custom(12, get_id('res.dep', ['name']))

        # Model's relations not updated if exists
        'country_id':   Relation('REL_res_partner_address,'),

        # Model's relations with unique value between objects
        'partner_id':   Relation('REL_res_partner_address::res.partner', search=True),


    # Define relations between models
    'REL_res_partner_address::res.partner': {
        'name':         Column(1),
        'siren':        Column(2),
        'website':      Column(16),
        'comment':      Column(56),

    # Relation without write if exists
    'REL_res_partner_address,':  {
        'code':         Column(13, callback=_country_code, search=True),
        'name':         Column(13, search=True),

Finally start the import process:


And show statistics of objects’s activities during the importation process:



A progress statistics will be shown during the process if you install the python-progressbar package.
