Add analysis tools regarding installed modules to know which installed modules comes from Odoo Core, OCA, or are custom modules

Project description

Beta License: AGPL-3 OCA/server-tools Translate me on Weblate Try me on Runboat

This module allows you to know ‘how much code’ is running on your Odoo instance, group by ‘Type’ (Odoo Core, OCA, other…)

This module can be usefull in the following cases :

  • To analyse the size of your technical debt, regarding your Custom modules

  • To know the ratio between Odoo / OCA and Custom modules

  • To evaluate the amount to pay to odoo to upgrade your custom code, or the induced workload

For that purpose, it adds new concepts

  •, based on the value author present in the manifest file.
  • ir.module.type, populated by default with Odoo and OCA values.

Each installed modules have extra data in the ‘Technical Data’ tab :

Table of contents


To use this module, you have to install the pygount python librairy.

pip install pygount>1.2.1


  • Go to Apps / Module Analysis / Modules Types Rules

The Module types Rules are usefull to get the Type of a module, based on it information.

This module comes with default rules.

You can add your custom rules to identify the modules your team have developped for exemple,

to update the data manually, you have to :

  • Go to ‘Apps’ / ‘Update Apps List’

  • Check the box ‘Analyse Installed modules’

This will update analysis of your installed modules.

to update the data automatically, you have to :

  • Go to ‘Settings’ / ‘Technical’ / ‘Scheduled Actions’

  • Configure the action ‘Update Module Analysis’. (By default, the analysis will be done nightly)

Adding Extra data

If you want to analyse other data, (for exemple, having the number of HTML files), create a custom modules and overload the module model :

from odoo import api, fields, models

class IrModuleModule(models.Model):
   _inherit = 'ir.module.module'

   xml_documentation_qty = fields.Integer(
      string='Quantity of Comments in XML Files')

  def _get_analyse_settings(self):
      res = super()._get_analyse_settings()
      if not '.html' in res:
          res['.html'] = {}
      res['.html']['documentation'] 'xml_documentation_qty'
      return res

Exclude files and directories

Two parameters are availaible in ‘Settings’ / ‘Technical’ / ‘Parameters’ ‘System Parameters’ :

The list of folders and filename will be exclude from the analysis. You can change the default settings.


  • Go to ‘Apps’ / ‘Module Analysis’ / ‘Installed module by Types’

Open the stats to analyse the detail of the code installed
