Tryton has a Three-tier architecture. It is composed of an application server which connects to a PostgreSQL database, a web or desktop client for the presentation and a set of server modules for the business logic.
Tryton is released by series (same major and minor version numbers) every 6 months and they are supported for 1 year except for new major which has long term support of 5 years.
A docker container that comes pre-installed with the server, modules and web client. This is a very simple way of locally installing and exploring the application. It is also production ready for easy deployment. These images are updated every week.
A ready-to-use client for your desktop. You can manage and connect to different servers using the same client.
For other platforms, use the source files
On macOS depending of your settings, you may need to authorize the Tryton App
The source code for the release of each component is available in an archive file. These are useful for creating packages.
We also publish an optional add-on that can be used to manage timesheets from inside your browser.
$ python -m pip install trytond # server
$ python -m pip install tryton # client
$ python -m pip install trytond_sale # sale module
trytond_sale with the name of the module needed.
The web client can not be installed with
pip, you must follow this installation procedure.
Tryton is also packaged and distributed by third-party volunteers. These generally provide better integration with the operating system, but often there is a delay before new versions make it into their distributions.
