Hi All,

First of all I would like to thank you all in releasing the virtual box image for ERPNEXT. This has given people like me who are not literate in Linux to actually play around with the system in a sandbox mode.

With the installation of the virtual box image, I have tried to create a new module. The steps taken so far is that i have just created a module def of the module I want to create. But the problem is that I have not been able to figure out the next steps to actually make a module. The module is not getting listed on the home page as well.

Also I am planning to create a MODULE as GPS Tracker, which would fetch the data and keep the data from a GPS tracker and keep it in a table and finally show it on Google Maps or something like that.

Please let me know if that kind of a thing is possible to do in this system?

Hi Aditya,

Great to hear you are getting to play around the backend code :)

That module is possible, but not easy. You will need a separate app to dump the GPS data into your ERPnext database (create a new table / doctype for that) and then plug-in Google maps (on a Page).
