This is a framework designed to build connectors with external systems, usually called Backends in the documentation.

Documentation: http://odoo-connector.com

It features:

  • A jobs queue

    In which the connectors can push functions (synchronization tasks) to be executed later.

  • An event pattern

    The connectors can subscribe listener functions on the events, executed when the events are fired.

  • Connector base classes

    Called ConnectorUnit.

    Include base classes for the use in connectors, ready to be extended:

    • Synchronizer: flow of an import or export
    • Mapper: transform a record according to mapping rules
    • Binder: link external IDs with local IDS
    • BackendAdapter: adapter interface for the exchanges with the backend
    • But ConnectorUnit can be extended to accomplish any task
  • A multi-backend support

    Each ConnectorUnit can be registered amongst a backend type (eg. Magento) and a backend version (allow to have a different Mapper for each backend’s version for instance)

It is used for example used to connect Magento and Prestashop, but also used with Solr, CMIS, …

Odoo Connector

Odoo Connector is a powerful framework to develop any kind of bi-directional connector between Odoo (Open Source ERP) and any other software or service.

This Odoo add-on has a modular and generic core, with the ability to be extended with additional modules for new features or customizations.

The development of Odoo Connector has been started by Camptocamp and is now maintained by Camptocamp, Akretion, Acsone and several :ref:`contributors`.

It got a major overhaul in 2017 (Odoo 10.0). A :ref:`migration-guide` is available.
