Extra options in manifest

This is a technical module to allow developers to make use of a couple of new keys in module manifests.

The following new keys are available currently:

depends_if_installed
Your module will depend on modules listed here, but only if those modules are already installed. This is useful if your module is supposed to override behavior of a third module if present, but it's not a hard dependency of your module. Think of auth_* and their interactions.

Usage

  • depend on this module and use the keys described above

Roadmap

  • breaks to mark some modules as being incompatible. This also could be versioned ('breaks': ['my_module<<0.4.2'])
  • demo_if_installed, data_if_installed, qweb_if_installed being dicts with module names as keys and a list of files as values in order to pull some data files in case some other module is installed
  • rdepends_if_installed to make another installed module depend on the current module
  • _if_module on models to load certain models only if the appropriate module is installed
