Mobile frontend for WMS Shopfloor app
Base frontend for Shopfloor applications.
The work is organized in scenario. A scenario represents a process in the workplace (eg: for WMS -> receive, deliver). The app allows to start each process through the main menu.
Each scenario is linked to a specific menu item which can be configured in the backend. Each scenario drives you through the work to do.
The whole business logic comes from shopfloor_base module, this module takes care of providing a nice and reactive UI to work with.
No Odoo JS is used, no assets machinery used.
Static assets are loaded straight, served by a specific controller. This app is a Single Page App, hence resources are loaded only once.
The version of the module appended to the URL of each resources makes sure it's not cached when the version changes.
When developing you can use a demo mode which allows to define interactive scenario with pure JS demo data, without interacting with Odoo. Nothing to deal with Odoo demo data.
Table of contents
- Your Odoo instance is accessible via mobile device
- You have an API Key configured
Start the app
- Go to "Inventory -> Configuration -> Shopfloor -> Shopfloor App"
- In the login screen fill in your API key
- Hit "Login"
Select a profile
Several profiles can be configured in the backend, you must choose one before starting.
- Tap on "Configure profile"
- Select a profile
This will load all available menu items for the selected profile.
- Go to "Settings -> Language"
- Select a language
Please refer to shopfloor_mobile_custom_example.
You can control which running env is considerd by Odoo config or env vars.
For Odoo config: running_env or shopfloor_running_env.
For env var: RUNNING_ENV or SHOPFLOOR_RUNNING_ENV.
Expected key RUNNING_ENV is compliant w/ server_environment naming but is not depending on it.
Additionally, as specific key for Shopfloor is supported.
You don't need `server_environment` module to use this feature.
Known issues / Roadmap
Split module by scenario
Improve documentation and demo data
Document each component
Document demo mode
Find / create a nice icon
Finish base translations (move all UI strings to translatable terms)
Refactor states definition
States are now part of the scenario data. They should be specific objects with their own class. They should also provide all the actions that should be displayed w/ their handlers when needed. Actions can be popup actions or buttons at the bottom of the screen. The tricky part here could be how to register this states for the given component. Today states have access to the full object of the scenario component as they are part of it. _get_state_spec could probably lookup for registered states (eg: when you register a component in the registry you should provide states as well). When we'll have states in this fashion we should also consider if they should provide their own template. This way the component template will hold only the generic bits of the scenario.
Back buttons should be smarter
In some cases getting back using history is fine but very often this could lead to outdated data display. To mitigate this in particular scenario's steps, custom handlers for the back action have been implemented. For instance, in cluster_picking when you hit back on manual selection it forces the state to go to start and reload. For starting we should provide on_back property to all states where we want to display it (no more specific check on the state to display this button). This part is also related to "Refactor states definition".
Load modules/components dependencies
As of today we are using bare ES6 imports which requires devs to know the exact path of the resource. If the resource changes name or path dependent files will be broken. It would be nice to have a way to declare modules by name as Odoo JS does.
Get rid of custom assets controller?
A controller takes care of loading static assets but seems to not be needed anymore.
First official version.
