Hello everyone, back here with me again. This article will share how I managed to install new Theme from Odoo community website on Odoo 12 Community Edition using Docker.

My Installation process on youtube

First thing first, you need to download the thenen from Odoo via this link https://apps.odoo.com/apps/themes/12.0/hr_theme

After you download the zip file, you need to extract the folder on the addons directory on the odoo-docker projects, which will look like this

the folder structure the HR Theme file are “hr_theme” and “web_responsive”

After that, we need to check out the docker-compose.yml file volumes that need to look like this :

After that, we need to open the odoo.conf and add a new line there, which is :

addons_path = /mnt/extra-addons

Based on my personal experience toward installing a new addons, if we didn’t add that new line, new addons won’t show up when we wanted to install the addons, so we need to add the line code.

Next, what we need is to start the Odoo via docker with this :

$ docker-compose up

After starting successfully, go to the setting to activate the developer mode on the screen’s right side.

After this, go to the Apps page and click “Updates Apps List” and click “Update” on the pop-up message.

After doing this then we can install our Open HRMS Theme.

Open HRMS Theme are installed

And that’s the journey of installing new set of theme for Odoo 12 community edition.

I hope this article helps anyone reading this, and thank you for reading this. See ya on another episode of me and Odoo 12!!
