How complicated is Odoo development under Windows?
Here’s another answer on “How complicated is Odoo development under Windows?” question from our senior dedicated Odoo developer.
Similar to Linux. Python is a cross platform. If you have PyCharm or LiClipse and properly configured PostgreSQL server you shouldn’t face any problem developing and debugging Odoo. The only problem could be that Odoo open source ERP requirements for specific versions of some specific libraries.
For example, I had issues with libraries lxml, xlrd, pillow and several others. Usually this issues were solved by installing Python unofficial binary releases. Also there could be different behavior in some minor functions. Important: when you have several addon folders you should modify parser command when running Odoo development from source code.
