The Node.js client library for OpenERP
Find file


The Node.js OpenERP library enables accessing any OpenERP server's XML-RPC API.

Build Status


This library may be installed using npm:

npm install openerp



This method sets up a client for connecting to openerp-server's databases. Here's a minimal example for connecting :

var openerp = require('openerp');

var client = openerp.createClient({
  username: 'efbeka',
  password: 'foo',
  database: 'bar',
  host: '',
  port: '8069'

The options object contains 4 required properties:

  • username: The username
  • password: The password
  • database: The database name
  • host & port(optional, default to 80): The uri of the Openerp-server host.


Method calls are structured as resource and action.

client.resource.action("data", function (err, result) {
  if (err) {
    throw err;

  // use the result


The client's methods are reflective of OpenERP's RPC availaible calls.

The full list will be implemented and available here progressively.


All tests are written with vows and should be run with npm:

  $ npm test
