Re: [26137] Usage of Py3o templating engine in Odoo projects

Thanks Manuel, 

to clarify the questions at stake of my colleague a bit more precise:

An ERP-System is meant to be the single source of truth.
That's why we we would ideally retain all the structured data
components (e.g. price, uom,...) that go into a Py3o report in the
first place parsed back in the ERP-system (of course with changed
content if it got changed in the Word / LibreOffice world). 

Actually this is what Sharepoint is trying to cover. So our questions
are:

Are there use cases out there that use Py3o to generate odt documents,
let the user manipulate its content in a visual way and store back at
least the structured part of the information "on safe" in the system
and if yes where an how?

For now and for us Py3o is seems to be too clumsy for that and the
technical challenges to solve too vast so that we can hardly imagine
that somebody ever tried to use it in such a use case, but we are
definitely eager to know and would love to hear about alternatives.

An no doing the entire unstructured part of a potential report document
in 1..n text field in the Odoo backend isn't a really god idea either,
we think.

Best Frederik
