Extended view inheritance

Beta License: LGPL-3 OCA/server-tools Translate me on Weblate Try me on Runbot

This module was written to make it simple to add custom operators for view inheritance.

Table of contents

Usage

Change a python dictionary (context for example)

<attribute name="$attribute" operation="python_dict" key="$key">
    $new_value
</attribute>

Note that views are subject to evaluation of xmlids anyways, so if you need to refer to some xmlid, say %(xmlid)s.

Add to values in a list (states for example)

<attribute name="$attribute" operation="list_add">
    $new_value(s)
</attribute>

Remove values from a list (states for example)

<attribute name="$attribute" operation="list_remove">
    $remove_value(s)
</attribute>

Move an element in the view

This feature is now native, cf the official Odoo documentation.

Known issues / Roadmap

  • add <attribute operation="json_dict" key="$key">$value</attribute>
  • support <xpath expr="$xpath" position="move" target="xpath" target_position="position" />
  • support an eval attribute for our new node types
