[v8] how to export list of installed modules?

on 9/22/14, 6:16 PM 3,507 views

I want to export a list of all installed modules (no matter where they come from) including the Module name and the technical name.

I went to >Settings > local Modules and filtered them by 'installed'. In the list view I choose 'more' and then 'export'. In the export dialog I select all available items to export and get a csv which does not seem to include any module which is not a base OpenERP S.A. module. Neither the Module Name, nor the technical name is listed.

how can I get what I want (a list of all installed modules, including Module names & technical names)?

Be sure to click on the record indicator to make sure you are showing more than the first 80 records, so that your export will include all modules (the first 80 will give you just Odoo modules)

In the Export Dialog, be sure to select 'Export All Data' from the Export Type drop down and select Display Name and Technical Name to get a list like this:

sounds reasonable, will try it shortly ... one thought: what benefit is there from limiting the output to first 80 by default?

on 9/22/14, 8:00 PM

gunnar, they probably only show the 80 first record for speed. The more records you want to load in the slower Odoo will be and the more time it'll need.

is it somehow possible to use a list of addons to automatically install them into a different database?
