Re: Docker for OCA/OCB

Hi Landis,

I would classify in one category, if you agree: TKL, Ubuntu Snappy, CoreOS, Project Atomic, RancherOS
Therefore, you might probably consider using ubuntu snappy or CoreOS or RancherOS over TKL

Docker philosophy, on the other hand, is all about "exposing services to an app", regardless of their physical location. Buzzword: "Distributed". A good start for reading is:

A "TKL Odoo" would then correspond probably to "Ubuntu Snappy Odoo".

Best Regards

I don't know Docker per say, but TKL" Docker " images are available which I assume are ready to run Odoo and Postgresql.
Not sure why one would need to choose one over the other though I do understand there may be more than you want in a TKL image.
I like TKL as I get enough tools to navigate what I otherwise don't know with it and Ideally don't have to configure much more.

In the TKL Docker(etc) build the Full Postgres/SMTP Mail (outgoing)/Odoo and required dependencies are packaged and run quick.

This is the TKL Docker info.  I do not however know anything myself about Docker.  

Build typeHeadlessPackagingInstallationKernelExtrasWorks best with...


Docker images hosted on thedocker index

Docker (news announcement)n/a

headless initialization fence,


preconfigured run and expose

Any Linux distribution that supports Docker

I will learn more about Docker.

Cool! That's interesting, however, personally, I would probably never use TKL again (since I;m a docker evangelist:)

FYI (@dockeranians):
psql as 14.71 MB "binary" :D

David et al.

Just yesterday the TurnkeyLinux Odoo App was put up on their Site ( using -b 8.0 Odoo)

There is a Docker and Several other VM builds along with the standard ISO build.
I have only used the ISO so far but all builds should be working.
TKL's info about Docker is here:

Should be buildable on Turrnkey Hub and Amazon AWS within the week.

Nice to have my project evolve into a hatchling.
If anyone wants to give the TKL Odoo app a spin I would be happy to discuss.

SSL Out of the Box.
 I can help folks put their own Cert is quite quickly as well.  I put them in their own folder in /etc/ssl

I recomend putting OCA files into /opt/openerp/oca/

For Control Purposes:
The Conf file is in /etc/odoo/openerp-server.conf
The Service is in /etc/init.d/openerp-server

I initially built this with several OCA Modules built in but in the end they were taken out to make the App Generic.
Was forked through Ken (DocCyBlade) to TKL.  Ken is a wizard on Git Protocol and Linux Services and I appreciated his help greatly!

Pretty easy to fork and include such if anyone is interested.  Just a great benefit to using the TKL Library as a start point.

Anyway, info for now.

Everyone interested in docker should sooner or later have a look at
- this article about the benefits of various minimalist operating system:
- this project about how to build close-to-binary application container:

Worth discussing - I suppose this is acceptable as long as the Docker Hub builder can access the wheel house?
