idoo P&L: -4.8 (≃ -52 USD)
Odoo, namely, https://odoo.com, is a web framework, just like Django, with its own PostgreSQL ORM, and MVC framework, but already with a financial accounting framework, and many ready-made office apps, making it an ideal replacement for something like corporate cloud-based office suites (like Google Work, Microsoft Office). Yet, it is also great as a replacement for Wordpress. Modules are easy to write, like apps in Django, so you can re-use your Python knowledge.
Ultimately, it's great as a real life gamifier, making life a little like UFO Enemy Uknown, and enabling to manage one's bases, like what I wanted with https://github.com/mindey/yukia, and also, it may even help everyone to sync politically, as I've described here on sl4.org.
However, it is not yet very easy to use. So, I think, it's worth making a video series on YouTube about using it, and this project will be about that.
I made a 17-min video about setting up Odoo on your own server. I'll later continue by adding more info, how to very cheaply run multiple websites on one database, and run multiple websites on multiple databases on that single server (which you could also run at home).
Wow, great project name, Mindey, with a cool logo!
I agree this project is needed. It took me years to learn WordPress, so I doubt switching unless a barrier to entry odoo would be reduced. It seems you're going to give a time-saver, super! So thanks for sharing a useful result - I'll watch your instructional video :)
Curious, are you going to turn your videos into an online course made with odoo itself?
Heh, well, I think it needs to become easier than Wordpress, or people won't use it. Unfortunately, barrier is quite large: there are various secret locations and settings on Odoo to just get it working right. I think, these are what keeps it being elite software, requiring a specialized agency to deal with. However, I think, with a little guidance, people could use it like they use Wordpress, and instead of Django (Odoo got the best of two or more worlds).
