Odoo.py CLI

HI everyone, 

I'm new to odoo. Recently, I need to automate our build process for odoo. And this is some approach that I intend to try 

1. Use cli odoo.py as background process but the problem is that everytime I run odoo.py, it create a new process ?

2. I could create a daemon thread as describe in this tutorial  https://www.linode.com/docs/websites/cms/install-odoo-9-erp-on-ubuntu-14-04. So that the CI server can stop/start odoo server easily. 

I still struggling with #2 but cannot run the server successfully yet. Does anyone have experience automate the odoo build before and share the experience with me ?

Thanks a lot in advance.

Hi all, 

After lots of time on #2 approach, I still cannot make odoo running in daemon thread. So I switch back to #1 and this is the final script that work for me. If you are in the same situation, hope that help. 


sudo kill -9 /var/run/odoo-server.pid

/opt/odoo/odoo-server/odoo.py -d <db_name> -r <db_user> -w <db_password> --addons-path <addons path> -u <modules to update upon startup> > /var/log/odoo/odoo-server.log 2>&1 & 

echo $! > /var/run/odoo-server.pid
