What is better,
Installation from debian nightlybuild?
Installation from github odoo directory?
Installation from Source?
and why? What are the + and - of each ? What are your best ways and your experience?
Review the documentation and post back with specific questions perhaps?
the simplest "installation", only suitable for getting a quick feel for Odoo or trying something out
trivial to start with and fully managed and migrated by Odoo S.A., can be used to both test Odoo and use it for your business, but restricts the flexibility of the system somewhat (check: no custom modules? what else?).
Can be used for both testing Odoo and long-term "production" use.
simple to get started, allows more flexibility in hosting and deploying the system and greater control over where data is stored. The maintenance burden is shifted to the user.
Suitable for testing Odoo, developing modules and can be used for long-term production use with additional deployment and maintenance work.
harder to get started than Packaged installers, provides even greater flexibility: packaged installers don't generally allow multiple running Odoo versions on the same system, and don't provide easy source access to Odoo itself.
Good for developing modules, can be used as base for production deployment.
The source code can be obtained by downloading a tarball or using git. Using git makes it easier to update, switch between multiple versions (including the current development version) or contribute.
if you usually use docker for development or deployment, an official docker base image is available, see the image's help document for more information
Installing from git is a strange habitude with Odoo is to install from a contribution/version management system which per definition quite unstable. Many do this and even recommand to do so.
Nightly builds are the same kind but snapshooted during quiet hours. It has my preference, it may be 1% more stable, who knows ?. Nevertheless, I use the sunday night nighlty build for all the week and cross fingers. I use the same during the week to have more chance to detect a default (I deliver many per day). Why sunday night ? why not !
I get the source from nightly builds because I install from sources, I have no recommandation about packages.
Bottom line: despite it should fail, it usually doesn't.
