Next.js website with Odoo

How to Integrate Next.js website with Odoo CRM?

Odoo, a powerful open-source ERP solution, excels in backend management, but its front end can feel restrictive. Enter Next.js, a modern React framework, offering a dynamic and customizable solution. This dream team – Next.js frontend and headless Odoo backend – creates a website powerhouse for lead generation and customer engagement.

Why Integrate Next.js with Odoo?

  • Enhanced Performance: Next.js utilizes server-side rendering and automatic code-splitting, resulting in faster page loads and smoother user interactions compared to the traditional Odoo front-end.
  • Improved SEO: With Next.js, developers have greater control over metadata and can optimize content for search engines, boosting visibility and driving organic traffic to your Odoo website.
  • Flexibility and Customization: Next.js empowers developers to create highly customizable and responsive designs, allowing for a unique brand identity and tailored user experience.
  • Modern Development Workflow: Leveraging React components and a streamlined development environment, Next.js offers a modern and efficient workflow for building and maintaining Odoo front-end projects.

In this comprehensive guide, we'll explore how to integrate your Next.js website's custom contact form with Odoo CRM leads, leveraging the power of Odoo Headless architecture. By seamlessly connecting Next.js with Odoo Headless, we'll outline a straightforward approach to capture leads from your website and synchronize them with your Odoo CRM system. With this method, you'll harness the endless possibilities of Next.js while efficiently managing your business contacts in Odoo CRM.

Step 1: Setting Up Your Next.js Project

First, make sure you have a Next.js project set up. If not, you can quickly create one using the following commands:

npx create-next-app@latest next-odoo
cd next-odoo

Step 2: Creating the Contact Form Component

Now, let's create a contact form component where users can input their information. create a `components` directory under src (if you are not using src directory you can create on the root of your project)

Now under the components directory create a file ContactForm.tsx if you do not want to use the typescript you can name it ContactForm.js .

Here's an example of a basic contact form component in Next.js which you can add to your ContactForm.tsx file :

import React, { useState } from 'react';

const ContactForm = () => {
  const [formData, setFormData] = useState({
    name: '',
    email: '',
    message: ''

  const handleChange = (e) => {
    setFormData({ ...formData, []: });

  const handleSubmit = async (e) => {
    // Call function to send form data to Odoo CRM
    await sendFormDataToOdoo();

  const sendFormDataToOdoo = async () => {
    try {
      const response = await fetch('/api/create-lead', {
        method: 'POST',
        headers: {
          'Content-Type': 'application/json'
        body: JSON.stringify(formData)
      if (response.ok) {
        console.log('Lead created successfully in Odoo CRM!');
    } catch (error) {
      console.error('Error creating lead:', error);

  return (
    <form onSubmit={handleSubmit}>
        placeholder="Your Name"
        placeholder="Your Email"
        placeholder="Your Message"
      <button type="submit">Submit</button>

export default ContactForm;
The above snippet is unstyled, you can use CSS to stylize it, we recommended using Tailwindcss.

Step 3: Setting Up Odoo API Endpoint

Next, we need to set up an API endpoint in our Next.js backend to send the form data to Odoo CRM. Create a new file called  route.tsx inside the app/api/create-lead directory:

export async function POST(request: Request) {
    const { name, email, message } = await request.json()
    const response = await fetch(`${process.env.ODOO_API_URL}/api/create-lead`, {
        method: 'POST',
        headers: {
            'Content-Type': 'application/json',
            // Add any necessary authentication headers here
        body: JSON.stringify({ name, email, message })

    if (response.ok) {
        return Response.json({ success: true });
    } else {
        return Response.json({ success: false, error: 'Failed to create lead in Odoo CRM' });

in the above code snippet, you may notice the URL ${process.env.ODOO_API_URL}/api/create-lead where you need to create the environment variable ODOO_API_URL in .env file which will hold the value of the url of your odoo instance.


Step 4: Using Component in Contact Page

Now our component is ready we can use it on the contact page of the Next.js website. to do that we need to create a directory called contact and inside it create a file called page.tsx (use .js extension if you are using javascript).

import ContactForm from '@/components/ContactForm'

const ContactPage = () => {
  return (

export default ContactPage;

Step 5: Creating Odoo Controller to create CRM Lead

Odoo by default not provide the API to create the lead, so we need to create the API route to accept the request from the Next.js contact form. To do this we need to create a controller in the custom odoo module. (here we assume you already know how to create an odoo controller from a custom odoo module)

# controllers/

from odoo import http
from odoo.http import request
import json

class LeadController(http.Controller):

    @http.route('/api/create-lead', type='json', auth='public', methods=['POST'])
    def create_lead(self, **kwargs):
            # Extract data from the request
            name = kwargs.get('name')
            email = kwargs.get('email')
            message = kwargs.get('message')

            # Create CRM lead
            lead = request.env['crm.lead'].create({
                'name': name,
                'email_from': email,
                'description': message,
                # Add any other fields you want to populate

            return {'success': True, 'lead_id':}

        except Exception as e:
            return {'success': False, 'error': str(e)}

Step 6: Testing the Next.js website integration with Odoo

To test the Next.js integration with Odoo CRM we need to run the Next.js using npm run dev or yarn dev. and also need to start the odoo instance, and make sure we install the custom addon that holds our LeadController.

now from the browser open the URL http// fill in the details of the contact form and hit submit. once you submit the form, it should create the crm.lead record in the odoo. you can validate the record in the Odoo CRM pipeline
