Odoo buildout recipe

License: AGPL-3

This recipe for Buildout is a fully featured tool allowing you to define and deploy quickly Odoo installations of any kinds, starting from the 8.0 series, and ranging from development setups to fully automated production deployments or continuous integration.


For older Odoo versions (which was known as "OpenERP" at the time), please use anybox.recipe.openerp, that you'll find also on PyPI and GitHub.

Some of its main features include:

  • uniformity across Odoo versions (from 8.0 onwards)
  • installation of Odoo server
  • retrieval of main software and addons from various sources, including the major version control systems
  • ability to pinpoint everything for replayability
  • management of Odoo configuration
  • dedicated scripts creation for easy integration of external tools, such as test launchers
  • packaging: creation of self-contained equivalents for easy deployment in tightly controlled hosting environmenents.

All these to be considered together with Buildout‘s general properties, such as an extensible configuration file format for easy variation or separation of concerns, native Python distributions installation, and of course the huge ecosystem of other recipes.


The full documentation is written with Sphinx, built continuously and uploaded to by Anybox' public buildbot. The Sphinx source tree is to be found under the doc subdirectory of this project.

The latest released version of the documentation is uploaded to PyPI alongside with the package. See PyPIDocumentationHosting for details.
