Packaging OpenG2P Docker

Work in progress

This page contains steps to be performed for packaging different components and addons, of OpenG2P and similar, into a docker image.


  • Create text file, example my-package.txt . This signifies a package. This file should include all openg2p modules (repositories) to be packaged into a new docker. Each line describes one repository to include, and the structure of each line looks like this.

    repo_name = git://<github branch name>//<github url to pull from>
    repo2_name = file://<path of the package in local system>
    • Any underscore in the repository name will be converted to hyphen during installation. For example:

      repo_name = git://<github branch name>//<github url to pull from>

      This is internally converted to repo-name.

  • The above configuration can be made via environment variables also.

    • Any variable with the prefix G2P_PACKAGE_my_package_ will be considered as repository to install i.e., G2P_PACKAGE_<package_name>_<repo_name>. For example;

      G2P_PACKAGE_my_package_repo3_name=git://<github branch name>//<github url to pull from>
    • These env variables can be added in .env file (in the same folder). The .env file will automatically be considered.

    • If same package is available in my-package.txt, .env and environment variable, then this will be the preference order in which they are considered (highest to lowest).

      • .env file

      • Environment variable.

      • my-package.txt

    • Use the .env to overload packages from my-package.txt

  • Run the following to download all packages:

    ./ my-package.txt
  • After downloading packages, run the following to build docker image:

    docker build . -t <docker image name>
  • Then push the image.

    docker push <docker image name>
  • Notes:

    • The above uses bitnami's odoo image as base.

    • This script also pulls in any OCA dependencies configured, in oca_dependencies.txt inside each package. Use this env variable to change the version of OCA dependencies to be pulled, OCA_DEPENDENCY_VERSION (defaults to 15.0).

    • This also installs any python requirements configured in requirements.txt inside each package.

    • Reference packages can be found in packages directory inside packaging directory.
