Experience with Tryton?


We are considering using Tryton (a fork of OpenERP) for application development. Our initial impressions are that the documentation is minimal and error messages not helpfully specific.

It would be helpful to know how using Tryton has worked out for others.

I don't have experience with Tryton, but I do with OpenERP.

Why do you prefer Tryton over OpenERP? The design and structure of OpenERP is ingenious, but it is at the point of unusable due to sloppy development, zillions of bug half-fixes, patches and regression errors, and immediate dropping all bug fixing in a release when the next version is released. Data from one release to the next is incompatible.

Does Tryton address some of those issues?

My experience with Tryton tells me that your first impressions are true, but you can find fast help on IRC or google mailing list if you have problems. Development is progressing quite fast and straight, if changes cause issues they are getting fixed soon. Migration to new version are not tricky, but own modules often need changes. There is also an android client out now. I like tryton. :-)

Thanks jlinkels and ownos and sorry it has taken so long to reply

@ jlinkels: From research rather than experience, Tryton has a much cleaner code base than OpenERP, addressing the issues of "sloppy development, zillions of bug half-fixes, patches and regression errors". IDK about the upgrade data migration issues. Tryton does not have as many modules as OpenERP.

@ ownos: thanks for the information. How does Tryton perform for you? We are concerned about response times even in our initial explorations with very little local code and almost no data.
