Thank you for your kind words.
I guess my concern was that there appeared to be a different repository
layout. Now for some reason the webnotes repo has the same layout as before
whereas the frappe repo has the layout I saw before. It’s just a little
confusing right now…
We’ve left the repositories in the webnotes organization of github as
per the version 3.x.x of wnframework and erpnext. All the new 4.0.0
stuff is in the frappe organization you saw.
Anyways, I’ll wait to get the instructions before trying to upgrade again.
About frappe apps, I might end up writing one app at some point, but not
right now. Another thing that’s a little confusing is what frappe exactly
is. From my understanding, it looks like an evolution of webnotes that’s
meant to be more than a web framework in the sense that it’s also a platform
Yes, exactly. Simply put, frappe is webnotes framework version 4.0.0
with a name change. With the new version of the framework, we’ve
removed the tight coupling within. The goal is to be able to extend
existing apps (best target is erpnext) and also be able to start new
projects. We’ve had such a pilot project in the past month and are
quite happy about the usablity/reusablity.
You seem to have a cloud offering for this, but my needs at this
point are more towards running an heavily customized erpnext on-premise. Can
I still do that with frappe or does it only work as-a-Service?
The cloud offering for frappe apps is a more generic cloud offering
than our current one for erpnext. You would still be able to customize
erpnext and run it in its entirety on your premise. No freedom
An if so, how do I migrate an erpnext install (with some slight customizations to
webnotes) from gunicorn to frappe?
We’ll be releasing documentation for that very soon. Also, I’d like to
highlight that this is a beta release, so migrating your production
system to ERPNext 4 is not a good idea as of now.
I am finalizing the install script at the moment. Will post when it’s ready.
