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

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 consumer methods, 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
  • A multi-backend support

    Each ConnectorUnit can be registered amongst a backend type (eg. Magento) or a backend version only.

It is actually used to connect Magento and Prestashop
