Practice in Editing ERPNext Source Code


There are customizations that I want to do on ERPNext which is calculating deduction automatically in the code for Salary Slip/Payroll. From my understanding, I need to edit the code in the .py file.

I would like to know if that is a normal practice in customizing ERPNext or there are different ways that are being practiced currently.


Hi Good Day, You dont need to change the code on py files you focus on working on custom script rather than changing the core files to avoid problem when updating erpnext. Hope this helps God Bless.

Hi. Thanks for the reply.

I will try to work on a custom server script.
