Project description

CLI shell for Odoo

Makes available in Odoo 8 the shell server command available for Odoo 9.


Just install the module.


Nothing special to be configured.


To have this feature available this module just need to be in the addons path. To use it, in a terminal window run:

$ ./ shell -d <dbname>

This will initialize a server instance and then jump into a Pyhton interactive shell, with full access to the Odoo API.

Example session:

>>> self
>>> self._name
>>> self.env
<openerp.api.Environment object at 0xb3f4f52c>
>>> self.env['res.partner'].search([('name', 'like', 'Ag')])
res.partner(7, 51)
