Hi Jacobus,

Thanks for sharing this.

I agree w/ Sergio: the storage repo sounds to be the right place (at least for the "deal w/ ext storage part).

Feel free to open a PR there describing your proposal.

Dear OCO community,

I did a weekend project a while back creating a file system for Odoo. Basically if allows you to attach a directory/file to and odoo object.

The advantage is that you can very much like with the old FTP file sharing infrastructure attach files to say invoices, order by simply saving them to the appropriate directory.

The difference is that this is a file system on linux so no uploading and it therefore works with everything (email apps, scanning aps etc).

It is alpha quality and slow but can easily converted into a sync app and the filesystem speed can very easily be increased.

I will gladly contribute this to OCA base if there are interest. If not just an interesting idea consider.
