Flectra HQ - Open Source fork of Odoo 11


(fpausp) #1

I know Markus has made a module for odoo 10. Flectra is a Fork of Odoo 11. I guess Flectra could be an unexpensiv alternativ.

Please take a look on the links:


Would be cool to integrate it to NethServer 7 but I don’t know if it is possible.

Please tell me you Opinion !

I don’t know what politics made them fork Flectra from Odoo. It would be good to know in order to make a choice for either Odoo or Flectra.
Besides that, what extra can Flectra bring that Odoo does not already bring?

Maybe this Info can give you an answer:

Tried to install Flectra under NethServer/CentOS without luck. Installed it successful under Debian 9 (vps) to be able to play with it…:

Please tell me your Opinion(s)…

The fork was only a question of time since Odoo lost a great part of it’s community when they decided to change the licensing model.
I didn’t had the time to test Flectra yet. Will do.

I have not much experiance with ERP-Systems. I tought by myself Its time now to start with it…

The question is to find an affordable ERP-System, what is good for small and medium-sized businesses, running on NethServer 7…

(Matthieu Gaillet) #7

Odoo / FLectra are definitively good products to consider !

Today, to begin with, I install the stable Version on Debian 9. I know this is not a Debian Forum here, but this a quick way to show you flectra 1.0

Here is the script:

adduser --system --quiet --shell=/bin/bash --home=/opt/flectra --gecos 'flectra' --group flectra
mkdir /etc/flectra
mkdir /var/log/flectra/
apt-get update

mv /opt/flectra/.flectrarc /etc/flectra/flectra.conf
sed -i "s,^(logfile = ).,\1"/var/log/flectra/flectra-server.log"," /etc/flectra/flectra.conf

update-rc.d -f flectra start 20 2 3 4 5 .
service flectra start

After installation, go to: http://<Server-IP-or-FQDN>:7073

Enjoy it…

Hope we can do it on NethServer next time…

Oh no, I wanted to have a look into flectra and…DMCA takedown, odoo seems not happy with the fork

(Matthieu Gaillet) #10

Bastards. So the community “open source” version allegedly published under LGPL3 would be salted with proprietary code ?

The problem is that it’ll probably not stop people (read : businesses) to buy the entreprise version. Even me I will probably not resist, even if I believe they stole the whole work.

(Rob Bosch) #11

Anyone has a status update on this issue? Bizar that code on Github can’t be forked… (on penalty of DMCA)
This is the Odoo part of the story: https://www.odoo.com/nl_NL/page/flectra-vs-odoo-flectrahq-enterprise
I am curious what the Flectra part is…

I didn’t follow the outcome of the dispute between odoo and flectra, but the flectra website is up again and the package can be downloaded again too.

NethServer is the best, OpenERP is back to the life, Flectra Is what we have to study now!!!
