Custom Front-End GUI in React

Hello, I just joined the group and I think I am asking this at the appropriate location.

I would like to know if it is possible to use Trytond (the backend server) with a custom front-end in something like react. This front end would be very simple and built from scratch (not using SAO at all).
There was a question of a similar note here but the user seems to already know how to connect to the server.

What I need to know is where can I find the API that tryntond uses to communicate to the front end and use my custom front end to talk to those points. I am hoping that the backend and frontend are independent of each other so that I can just swap mine with the included one.
I have no experience with front end but I have a working understanding of APIs in servers.

Where do I start with something like this?

Thanks for taking the time to read my question.

The server supports two equivalent protocols JSON-RPC and XML-RPC. The methods are constructed like (model|wizard|report).<__name__>.<method> but they must be defined in the __rpc__ attribute of the class. It will great if someone wrote the missing parts of the documentation.
Otherwise you can create your own API using user application.

Thank you. In this case, the class where the rpc attribute is defined corresponds to the class for each module? I am sorry if this sounds dumb. I am barely just started looking at the documentation.

Yes it is the classes that are registered in the Pool.

Hello andresberejnoi,
with the help of the forum I was able to create a web interface (which I use only for certain features). I developed the solution with the Laravel framework that uses the php language.
I used a script passed to me from @albert which I then modified and adapted to the specifics of my project.

Thanks a lot. I will take a look and see if I can adapt it to my use case.

I am still figuring out the routes. Just to check that I am on the right path, I will mention what I am doing. My thinking is that I start the server trytond with a configuration file. Then I just should be able to send requests to that server running in localhost:8000 or, right?
I will be testing with Postman to send some. Do you know if there are any more in-depth examples of the user application? It seems like something that I could potentially use because the syntax looks similar to flask, which is familiar.

Thanks for your time


chronos is using it.
But you can also start without the @user_application, in this case the route is available to any one without any authentication.

Another example traky is using it.


Hello ced,
So where should I create the user application file in the project, and how should I link it to tryton project.

You do not create a user application in Tryton project. It is a side project.

You define routes with the user_application decorator.
