OpenERP on OSX

Introduction

I tried to build OpenBravo without success. Let’s see if I have more success with OpenERP.

  • https://launchpad.net/openobject
  • http://doc.openerp.com/v6.1/contribute/index.html#how-to-contribute-link

## Installation

Do:

bzr branch lp:openobject-server

Build and install:

python setup.py help
python setup.py build
sudo python setup.py install

Try to start the server:

./openerp-server --addons-path=~/home/workspace/stable/addons
...
ImportError: No module named PIL

I have created an issue about this: http://help.openerp.com/question/14169/howto-install-openobject-server-on-osx/

Troubleshooting

Try to install PIL:

pip install PIL

Build a zip (not sure what it’s good for):

python setup.py sdist --format=zip
...
ls dist
