It is with great excitement that we announce the release of our branch of openerp 6.1 web-client onto github patched with tabs, menu icons and bug fixes.
The idea has come after we have released the web_tabs module as an addon to the main web-client, however we felt very limited by what we can do with that approach and seeing too much divergence between the official direction of OpenERP S.A. and our own vision. This has been further highlighted by the trunk release of the new 7.0 web-client, which rather than focus on adding enterprise features, it does add too many of the eye-candy and social media features that we simply find unnecessary for an ERP system.
What we would like to do now is to invite everyone interested, willing and capable to contribute to this branch with merge proposals on github, so the end result will be a next level and intuitive ERP web-client suitable for enterprise needs from accounting to manufacturing and CRM.
The install of this web-client is easy:
1– in your /etc/openerp-server.conf find the addons_path and replace the original web-addons path with the one from this branch.
2 – restart the server
3 – clear your browser cache
4 – enjoy the new client
Our immediate goal is to achieve the below functionality, so if you like to contribute with anything, please get in touch:
1 – unify the ‘form’ and ‘page’ views, so the web-client will look more like the GTK client
2 – amend the ‘tree’ views, so we can have context menus for right-clicking on records – also to make it more like the GTK feel and look.
3 – possibly introduce the double-clicking on tree-view records to open and single click to select.
