Locale - Default UoM

This module adds a concept of a default unit of measure on languages, unique by unit category type.

It also provides a method that can be used in fields to work from said defaults.


Set default unit of measures in the Languages menu in settings.


Fields that want to implement the language default should use the provided method, such as in the below example:

class MyModel(models.Model):
    _name = 'my.model'
    time_uom_id = fields.Many2one(
        string='Time Units',
        default=lambda s: s.env['res.lang'].default_uom_by_category('Time'),
