Install OCA modules from command line

Amit Bhardwaj

Hello all, 

This question is related to installation of Odoo modules(OCA specifically) from command line. I have been able to use odoo-bin to setup DB and install module from a single command BUT, I am unable to install OCA modules using odoo-bin.

Since, developer's mode need to be enabled to install 3rd party modules in Odoo, can you please let me know how I can enable developer mode from CLI/API or any other way. 

Thanks in advance. I am fairly new to Odoo world so let me know if any additional information is required.

We can install the oca module by clone the git repository in your server and add the directory to your `odoo.conf` file.

For better understanding you can follow the blog below.

And in the case of activating developer mode you can follow the steps below

General Settings -> Go to down using mouse scrollbar 
Where you will find the Developer Mode option with three different categories 
Activate the developer mode - Mostly Used by the Administrators
Activate the developer mode (with assets)  - Mostly used by the developers
Activate the developer mode (with tests assets)  - Mostly used by the developers and testers.

Hope it helps
