ERPNext 对Odoo社区的倡议书


  • 管理员

    翻译了一下来自ERPNext的老大的倡议书。ERPNext不错,各位自行甄别:stars:

    中文翻译(译者:digitalsatori - shine-it.net)

    Odoo社区朋友们大家好,

    我以ERPNext社区之名跟各位聊两句。如果你从来没接触过ERPNext,我这里简单介绍一下。ERPNext与Odoo类似是用Python语言开发的开源ERP系统,这个项目从2008年就开始持续的开发了,它与Odoo没有任何的关系。它背后也有一个强健的开源社群,当然比之Odoo的社区要小得多。

    我今天写这封信的目的是希望在你制定2017年的计划的时候,请考虑将ERPNext编入你的行动计划。

    ERPNext与你何干?

    众所周知Odoo目前拥有全球最大的开源ERP产品和社群,并且正在非常激进的推动其产品和社群的发展。ERPNext则较为安静的构建自己的社群,并且极尽所能提高产品的易用性。ERPNext中的一些好点子往往也被Odoo拿去拷贝了。

    我们知道如果没有竞争,Odoo极有可能走向封闭。

    垄断对于用户是件很烂的事情,我们中的大多数都经历了微软独霸的不堪过去。当市场上有强烈的竞争时,创新就会被充分激发。譬如安卓之于iOS,Windows之于Linux,或是RedHat之于Debian莫不如是。正如专业的体育赛事,健康的竞争为我们呈现最棒的结果。

    最近的一个例子就是GitLab之于GitHub。多年来Github平台踯躅不前,停止推出新的产品功能,因为他们无疑已是开源开发者市场的王者。但当一个强大的竞争对手GitLab出现后,他让GitHub变得更加精彩,而作为用户的我们得到了最大的好处。

    我们相信ERPNext已经在影响Odoo,推动它提高用户体验,推动它将更多的东东开源。没有一个强健的ERPNext,就不能带给Odoo竞争的压力,而他也将开发出越来越多闭源的模块,最终停止对产品的创新。通过支持ERPNext,你,作为社区的一员将获得最好的结果。

    ERPNext碉在哪里?

    虽然ERPNext和Odoo看起来相似,他们却有着根本性的不同:

    1. ERPNext没有任何闭源模块。ERPNext是100%的开源并且我们会继续保持这样。
    2. 升级免费。你无需购买企业版权就可以将ERPNext更新升级到有更多功能,更高效率和更安全的新版本。
    3. ERPNext 没有付费的app。与Odoo不同,ERPNext包括了所有你可能需要的功能。
    4. ERPNext 由社区共同构建。ERPNext由两个机构提供支持: Frappé Technologies提供SaaS服务,一个(最近刚成立)的基金会管理着来自社群的贡献和反馈。

    你如何驾驭它?

    ERPNext 可以通过她的bench工具很容易的安装到任何虚拟机上。 而且它已经设置好了多租户的应用环境。最简单的试用方式是访问 erpnext.com 提供的SaaS服务,了解各功能特点。

    社群成员在论坛 https://discuss.erpnext.com 或Gitter https://gitter.im/frappe/erpnext 讨论问题。一定要玩玩ERPNext哦,大多数人同时玩了Odoo和ERPNext后,会比较喜欢后者!

    我们并不是要掀起一场与Odoo的你死我活的战争,而是将微软,Sage,Netsuite作为我们共同的目标。拥有两个强健的产品是加速开源发展的最佳途径。ERPNext是在开源世界里唯一能对Odoo展开真正的竞争压力的产品,我们可以确保Odoo忠实于你,忠实于Odoo的社区。

    让2017年成为开源在企业应用软件领域发扬光大的一年。让我们携手共进,创新里程。如果你有任何问题或在试用需要任何帮助,请在 https://discuss.erpnext.com 里提出, 我们会非常乐意回答您的问题!

    Hello Odoo Community,

    I am writing to you on behalf of the ERPNext Community. If you have not encountered ERPNext, it is an open source ERP product written in Python just like Odoo and has been under active development since 2008. It has been built from scratch and has no relation to Odoo. There is also a strong community behind ERPNext, though much much smaller than Odoo.

    The reason I am writing today is that as you make your plans for 2017, please keep ERPNext in your list of things to do.

    Why does ERPNext Matter?

    As you all know, Odoo is currently by far the biggest open source ERP product and community in the world today and is doing an aggressive job of growing both the product and community. ERPNext has been quietly building its own community and has been pushing the barrier in usability and quality and often ideas in Odoo are picked up from ERPNext.

    We also know that given no competition, Odoo is likely to go down the closed path.

    Monopolies are bad for the user and most of us have lived through the bad old days of Mircosoft. Innovation thrives when there is strong competition in the market. Whether is Android v/s iOS or Windows v/s Linux or RedHat v/s Debian. Like professional sport, healthy competition brings out the best in us.

    The most recent example is GitLab v/s GitHub. For many years, the GitHub product had become stagnant and they stopped rolling out new features because it was the clear winner of the open source developer market. But as a strong competitor GitLab came into the picture, it brought out the best in GitHub, and we as users got the benefit.

    We believe that ERPNext is already affecting Odoo by pushing it to build better user experience and keeping more stuff open source. Without a strong ERPNext, there will be no competition to Odoo and it will keep making more and more closed modules and stop innovating the product. By backing ERPNext, you ensure that as a community we get the best of everything.

    How ERPNext is Different?

    Though they might seem similar, ERPNext and Odoo has some fundamental differences:

    There are no closed modules in ERPNext. ERPNext is 100% open source and will continue to be so.
    Upgrades are free. You don't have to buy an enterprise license to update / upgrade your ERPNext instance for new versions that have more features, better performance and security
    There are no paid apps in ERPNext. Unlike Odoo, ERPNext comes with battries included so most of the features you need are already built into the product out of the box.
    ERPNext is built by the community. ERPNext is backed by two organizations, a SAAS service run by Frappé Technologies and a Foundations (established recently) and is run with feedback and contributions from the community.
    How Can You Get Started?

    ERPNext is really easy to install on a VM with the bench utility and it comes with a fully multi-tenant production ready setup. The easiest way to try is to sign up for the SAAS at erpnext.com and explore the features.

    The community hangs out at the forum https://discuss.erpnext.com or on Gitter at https://gitter.im/frappe/erpnext. Do give ERPNext a spin if you already have not, we promise you that people who have tried both, usually love ERPNext!

    Our fight is not versus Odoo but Microsoft, Sage and Netsuite. Having two strong products is the best way to accelerate the growth of open source. ERPNext is the only product in the open source space that can pose a serious challenge to Odoo and ensure that Odoo remains faithful to you, the community!

    Lets make 2017 the year in which Open Source finally makes it big in business software, let us join hands to make this happen. If you have any questions or need help in getting started, just give a shout at https://discuss.erpnext.com and we will be happy to answer your questions!

  • 昨天睡的少,今天下午脑子昏昏的,翻译和学习Odoo工作暂时做个暂停。
    测试ERPNext相对而言,要轻松些。
    先去看了下创始人:Rushabh Mehta的视频,全世界的IT气质都有相似之处。 :smile:

    然后去官网注册了个用户,对方用的发件人地址比较奇怪的关系,在垃圾箱里面找到了收到的注册邮件,之后会继续发个邮件过来。

    总得来说,ERPNext功能看上去蛮完整了,有简体中文,可以去看看。操作中也有若干报错之处,也有值得国内做类似软件的合作伙伴借鉴的地方。

    • ERPNext自己写了个开发框架,用于开发,不过开发部分的我还没仔细看,ERPNext的项目也托管在GitHub上。https://github.com/frappe/erpnext 也有10个版本,有118个贡献者,278watch;1679star;940fork。
    • 和天朝的大部分软件一样,有个按行业的配置向导
    • 没做标签页,更多的页面内容向下滚动;
    • 分角色的权限管理,
    • 文档底部也有消息墙,和邮件集成,官方还集成了发短信的,我还没测试;
    • 订单可以复制出送货单,如果没货好像是不能送货的,订单也可以复制出发票,发票创建后有给客户的邮件向导;
    • 打印的纸质报表看介绍,似乎是可以自定义的;
    • 商机可以转报价,销售佣金是官方自带功能(不过也是百分比);
    • 可以进行简单的界面开发,增加减少表单和字段(),还能重置为默认值;
    • 可以自定义工作流;
    • 支持多仓库、批号、序列号、不过计量单位好像没换算;
    • 多币种、多语言;
    • 默认的会计科目需要会计去看了,不过会计科目没编号;
    • 目前好像没发现有第三方模块;好像没找到设置序列号的地方;
    • 有比较简单的定价规则(只是折扣,没有公式);
    • saas免费1用户,5用户开始收费,费用见截图。

    好了,就到这里,等大家补充了。
