Old Debate: Custom Theme vs Odoo Themes
Yes, a custom theme is absolutely your own product. It has the imprint of your brand, your vision, and your ideas all over it. But, it has limitations of your vision itself. Most importantly, you are designing something for weeks, which is readily available in the App Store. Also, our experience also suggests that custom themes take numerous changes to be stable.
Let’s take an example of one of the top selling themes on Odoo App Store: Crafito Theme. We created this theme for ecommerce platform specifically. It is a feature-rich theme built using Bootstrap. It offers a wide range of snippets to the developers to customize the theme as per the requirements with ease. Odoo themes provide an ideal website design for online business.
