2013-10-16 04:56 <WalterN> lets try installing tryton for my first time
2013-10-16 04:57 <WalterN> ACTION holds breath
2013-10-16 04:58 <WalterN> its not in the debian repositories?
2013-10-16 04:58 <WalterN> oh yeah it is
2013-10-16 04:59 <WalterN> what is tryton-neso and tryton-proteus?
2013-10-16 05:09 <WalterN> is it generally not a good idea to install tryton-modules-all?
2013-10-16 05:19 <plantian> neso = tryton + trytond, proteus is a client library for accessing trytond programmatically
2013-10-16 05:19 <plantian> WalterN: I think when you actually start using tryton you will want to only install the moduels you want. For trying it out though it probably does not matter.
2013-10-16 05:28 <WalterN> plantian: I'm setting it up for a startup company...
2013-10-16 05:29 <WalterN> and I've never used tryton before... heh
2013-10-16 05:29 <WalterN> its for a machine shop
2013-10-16 14:50 -!- vcardon( has left #tryton
2013-10-16 16:24 -!- b0r7( has left #tryton
2013-10-16 20:41 <WalterN> plantian: how do I know what modules I want?
2013-10-16 20:43 <plantian> WalterN: well some modules are specific to other countries, and then some things you won't need depending on your accounting
2013-10-16 20:44 <plantian> WalterN: Do you think you will be writing custom modules?
2013-10-16 22:07 <WalterN> plantian: enh, no... at least not for a few years... heh
2013-10-16 22:13 <WalterN> plantian: the thing is that the company I joined is a startup machine shop... right now its just me and two other guys who own it. I'm just trying to figure out what to set up on the computer to keep track of everything
2013-10-16 22:14 <WalterN> and I dont know what most of these modules do
2013-10-16 22:22 <WalterN> suppose I could start here...
2013-10-16 22:22 <WalterN> heh
2013-10-16 22:23 <WalterN> are there any that I should stay away from, or any that is highly suggested?
2013-10-16 22:32 <b0r7> mhm depends.. i would say start with party,account and sale but it depends on your usecase, there are no modules you should stay away from..
2013-10-16 22:33 <b0r7> each one has a usecase and puropose
2013-10-16 22:37 <b0r7> and maybe stock module, note that each has its documentation page:
2013-10-16 22:52 <plantian> WalterN, b0r7: I guess the main issue I've had is that uninstalling modules is not that easy and managing the upgrade and configuration of many modules I did not use was difficult for me.
2013-10-16 22:52 <plantian> I use mainly the stock and sale modules.
2013-10-16 22:52 <plantian> And their extensions.
2013-10-16 23:04 <WalterN> hmm
2013-10-16 23:04 <WalterN> will it do what quickbooks does?
2013-10-16 23:04 <WalterN> I mean
2013-10-16 23:04 <WalterN> well
2013-10-16 23:05 <WalterN> I donno what I mean... heh..
2013-10-16 23:11 <WalterN> I guess I'm wondering if there is a module or two that would compose of a good replacement to quickbooks
2013-10-16 23:22 <b0r7> WalterN: i would say you'll have to give it a try.. basic uses work out of the box .. i'd say.. costumization is apparently not as easy as in (i assume) quickbooks .. as tryton is young and as the website states a framework (to build up on).. disclaimer: i'm new to tryton as well and building a workflow for a friend's company
2013-10-16 23:41 <WalterN> yeah
2013-10-16 23:41 <WalterN> this stuff is all new to us
2013-10-16 23:41 <WalterN> running a business, accounting, owning machines... just trying to figure out stuff
