Mulitple customizations to a doctype from different apps, is this possible?

Hi all,

I am playing around with the possibilities of the frappe framework and I wonder if this is possible:

Doctype A (provided by App 1)

Customization 1 to doctype A (provided as fixture in App 2)
Customization 2 to doctype A (provided as fixture in App 3)

The customizations each add new fields to doctype A.


why not try it out and share the result?

Yes this is possible. But when overriding whitelisted methods you have limitations, Only the first overriden whitelisted method gets executed.

Yes Its Possible. Every App its own custom folder

Have a look into How to manage multiple customizations for the same doctype

In general it is possible, but you have to be careful how to do it, especially if you work with multiple developers (or teams) in parallel.

Thank you all for your replies!

I will try it.

Providing multiple custom fields to the same doctype from different custom apps works like a charm.

Just export the respective custom fields with filters to each app and then install the apps to another site.

Best regards,
