If possible, you should skip the launchpad version and head over directly to github. Anyway, here is what I do (as the user I want the code under).

Configure bazaar for use if not done already:

  • bzr whoami "Nemanja Dragovic <nemanja@someaddress.com>"


  • mkdir openerp (for example in your home directory)
  • cd openerp
  • bzr branch lp:openobject-server/7.0 server

When this is done, also get the addons and web modules:

  • bzr branch lp:openobject-addons/7.0 addons
  • bzr branch lp:openobject-web/7.0 web


Alternatively, if using github, use these steps (assuming git has been installed):

  • mkdir openerp
  • cd openerp
  • git clone https://github.com/odoo/odoo.git odoo

When this is done:

  • cd odoo
  • git checkout -r origin/7.0

And you should be on the right version as well. No need for seperate downloads of web/addons, its all included in the git repository.


Hope this helps!

OpenERP has moved from bzr/launchpad to git/github. It can be that the code is still available on launchpad but if you start right now I strongly suggest to get started with git & download the code from github. I am a novice with this myself, so I can provide only basic info but that might get you going at least. I assume you are on a linux machine. The followint commands are working for ubuntu & debian

  1. sudo apt-get install git
  2. cd /path/to/folder *
  3. sudo git clone --branch 7.0 https://github.com/odoo/odoo   or   sudo git clone --branch 7.0 https://github.com/OCA/OCB **

* wherever you want to download the sourcedode to. If you want to run Odoo on this machine this would be inside of /opt. But I suggest to follow a howto for an installation because there is a little more to it then downloading the source code
** this 'clones' the sourcecode into a local repository. If you want to study the code that might be sufficient

I guess it would be a good idea to study how to get around with git a little

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Git_%28software%29  or  http://git-scm.com/book  or  https://help.github.com/ might be a way to start

You were 2 minutes earlier, but your explanation is very nice!
