Installation and Configuration

1. Copy the files to your addons folder.

This step will depend on how your installation is configured, but essentially, once the new module is downloaded, you will need to move it into an addons folder on your server. If you are unsure which folder is reserved for addons, you can find that information on your Odoo configuration file.

The files can be placed on your server in multiple ways. We recommend using either SCP/SSH or FTP.

2. Restart your Odoo instance.

Whenever new applications are installed, Odoo will need to be restarted. We highly recommend that you do not do this during your standard hours of operations or in a production environment. There is always a possibility of module conflict, so take precautions to reduce the amount of time your system is unavailable to your users.

You can use the same method that you normally use when restarting Odoo. Typical commands we have encountered are:

# Using a service script on Linux
sudo service odoo-server restart

# Using Docker and Docker-Compose
docker-compose restart

3. Install The Module.

Once you have restarted your instance, navigate to the Apps screen within your Odoo instance and install the Odoo Color Branding module. This will open up all of the features for you to access.

That's it! You can now start using the new features!

Custom Branding



The module is installed through Odoo's App interface. It will automatically install Odoo dependencies not already installed.

Once installed, you must tell Odoo where to store and create the less files. This is done by creating a system paramter with a key of 'blue_custom_branding.addon_path'. We suggest using the full path of where the blue_custom_braning module is installed. For example, '/home/odoo_user/odoo/odoo9/vendor_addons/blue_custom_branding'. The process Odoo runs under must have permission to read and write to this directory.


This module allows you to have a different color theme depending on which company the user is logged into. The purpose is to give a visual indication telling the user which company they are logged into. You can also use this module to easily change the colors within odoo, even if you do not use the multicompany functionality.

To create colors for a company, go to Settings, Users, Companies. If this menu item is not there, you will need to enable multicompany on at least one user. In the form view of the company, there is a "Theme" tab where you can enter various colors for each class of UI elements. When entering a color, use the hex value of the color, leaving off the '#' at the front of the color value.

The Info Color is the color that defines the top bar, perhaps the most important variable you may want to change.

You can use themes from Bootswatch (https://bootswatch.com/). To use a prebuilt theme, look at the variables.less file and copy the @brand-{variable} value into the theme area for a company.

After changing the color associated with a company, you must refresh the browser to see any changes. This also applies to changing the company the user is logged into.
