The source created by ITpedia Solutions and Ahmed Magdy in this theme is released under the GPLv3 license. The source of the other code in this module is a combination of Apache, MIT, GPLv3, and other open source or free software licenses.  If the crowd funding is successful, all of the source will be released in a public repository on Github.

We currently do not have any specific plans for Odoo 9, However, once released on Github, the nature of the GPLv3 license does not change. ANYONE is able to modify and/or "convey" (using language inside the GPLv3 license) this code as much as they want. The GPLv3 and other open source licenses on the source cannot be changed (unless the author(s) holding the copyright give permission). For our GPLv3 section of the code, even if we did change the license, the ONLY other license we could legally change it to would be AGPLv3. ANYONE will still be able to modify and/or "convey" the code as much as they want. These modifications include making the theme compatible with Odoo 9. If this theme is accepted by the OCA, then compatibility with Odoo 9 is more likely than if it just stays in our public repository.

We want this theme to be accepted by the OCA because we support the mission and goals of this fantastic non profit organization. OCA, and the many people contributing to large number of OCA, Projects, Apps, and Modules have added a significant amount of features and improvements to Odoo. This has not only positively impacted thousands of Odoo end users and contribute towards the success of hundreds of Odoo related companies and software engineers, but it significantly adds to the value of the Odoo software, making it more sustainable and successful. We support any action that makes Odoo more sustainable and successful. We think the Web Mobile Responsive Theme will be a fantastic addition to the OCA.

We also recognize there are many local and developing economies throughout the world where there are challenges with affording the costs of software in countries located in North America, Europe, and parts of Asia. We are hopeful that the Web Mobile Responsive Theme, when combined with other OCA, Projects, Apps, and Modules, will enable companies and organizations in those local and developing economies to be more successful, create more jobs, and positively impact a greater number of people.

Good question Gunnar, I' like to know too.

I guess in case this will be accepted as an OCA project it is secured that this theme will be kept Open Source (AGPL or GPL) for 9.0 and upcoming versions as well, right?

Hello Everyone,



I am very happy to provide some updates about the Web Mobile Responsive Theme (AKA Inshas backend theme):
  • The Web Mobile Responsive Theme is still alive and is in active development!
  • We are squashing bugs and adding features as this is being written!
  • See the attached screenshots from recent commits in the last 24 hours!
  • Many have contacted us about purchasing this module directly. We decided it is best for us and the larger Odoo community if we launch a crowdfunded campaign that will result in:
  • For Odoo 8.0 we have decided to release our portion of the theme code under the GPL v3 license.
    • This means once the code is released to the public, it will be freely downloadable and modifiable by anyone. The GPLv3 license is one of the most copyleft, free (as in freedom), open source licenses in the history of computing.
    • We are looking forward to this theme being continuously improved in a publically collaborative manner.
  • We will be posting a video to YouTube demonstrating the features of this unique new theme very soon. (in the meantime, please enjoy the attached screen shots)
  • Later this week, we will schedule a Hangouts on Air for a live demonstration of the theme. The first 8 to email us directly at info@itpediasolutions.com will be invite as participants AND an unlimited number public viewers will be able to ask questions and request specific demonstrations.
    • We will schedule this Hangout on Air at a time that is reasonable for most viewers in North America, Europe, Africa, and the western portions of Asia
    • The Hangout on Air session will be saved and shared as a publically accessible video on YouTube.

Web Mobile Responsive Theme Description

To our knowledge, there is no other Odoo 8.0 Theme, App, nor module that enables the functional features available from all compatible apps/modules (Odoo SA supported, community, custom, etc) originally designed for the Odoo 8.0 web client user interface, to be automatically formatted in a mobile / small screen compatible web responsive user interface. This mobile / small screen compatible web mobile responsive user interface for Odoo 8.0 is very appealing to almost anyone who uses Odoo 8.0 or is interested in using Odoo 8.0. It opens Odoo 8.0 up to billions of small screen mobile smartphone and tablet devices. It has a compelling user interface to use as a key component to design customized apps / modules targeted at vertical industries and basically anyone who wants to use Odoo 8.0 away from a traditional desktop or laptop computer (Mobile Sales Teams, Warehouse, Manufacturing, Transportation, Medical, Retail, etc).
