CLI shell for Odoo

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

Installation

Just install the module.

Configuration

Nothing special to be configured.

Usage

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

$ ./odoo.py 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
res.users(1,)
>>> self.name
u'Administrator'
>>> self._name
'res.users'
>>> self.env
<openerp.api.Environment object at 0xb3f4f52c>
>>> self.env['res.partner'].search([('name', 'like', 'Ag')])
res.partner(7, 51)

Troubleshooting

If the command does nothing, or if you have the error:

Usage: odoo.py [options]

odoo.py: error: unrecognized parameters: 'shell'

it is surely because of the order of the parameters. Try the following:

$ ./odoo.py --addons-path=<your_path1>,<your_path2> shell --config=<your_config_file> -d <dbname>
