OOF has a very focused purpose, being the framework for Odoo. Changing to another paradigm might bring advantages but also new problems, so it might be best to put some community effort and try to improve OOF as much as posible.

What are the main things you would change, Mohamed Magdy? How can anybody lend a helping hand on that?

sides, but having their own seems better in my opinion.

Kind regards

the core editor of the tool where do not have write permisions
to improve at the speed they need and protecting the job in
terms of branding it is too complicated make it evolve.

Django and OOF are similar framworks
done for different purpose.
