Common Migration Helpers

Switching off unported modules

# (create fresh branch from upstream)

# mark all modules as non-installable
find . -type f -name __openerp__.py  -or -name __manifest__.py | xargs sed -i 's/"installable": True/"installable": False/'
find . -type f -name __openerp__.py  -or -name __manifest__.py | xargs sed -i "s/'installable': True/'installable': False/"

# check for fiels without "installable" tag in manfiest
find . -type f -name __openerp__.py  -or -name __manifest__.py | xargs grep -L "installable.: "
# (if there is any output -- edit those files manually)

# prepare a commit
git add .
# check commit diff
git diff --cached
# Emoji prefixed with odoo version
git commit -m ":one::two::sos: mark unported modules as non-installable"
# (make "git push" and pull request at github)

Reviewing odoo updates

Code below helps you to find what is new between odoo branches

cd path/to/odoo/

# check name for remote corresponding to https://github.com/odoo/odoo.git
git remote -v

# change directory to the module you need. To check core updates use "cd odoo/"
cd addons/mail/

git log \
    --date=relative \
    --pretty=format:"%h%x09%Cblue%ad%Creset%x09%ae%x09%Cgreen%s%Creset" \
    --invert-grep \
    --grep='\[FIX\]' \
    --grep='\[MERGE\]' \
    --grep='\[DOC\]' \
    --grep='\[CLA\]' \
    --grep='\[I18N\]' \
    origin/10.0..origin/11.0 -- . # use corresponding remote name and version

Reviewing module source

Commands below may help you to estimate amount of work to migrate module. The commands simply show all source in one view

# view source
find . -iname "*.py" -or -iname "*.xml" -or -iname "*.csv" -or -iname "*.yml" -or -iname "*.js" -or -iname "*.rst" -or -iname "*.md" | xargs tail -n +1 | less

# view source without docs
find . -iname "*.py" -or -iname "*.xml" -or -iname "*.csv" -or -iname "*.yml" -or -iname "*.js" | xargs tail -n +1 | less
