Adding to the addons path Now that we have a new module, even if minimal, we want to make it available in Odoo. For that, we need to make sure the directory the module is in is part of the addons path. And then we need to update the Odoo module list. Both operations have been explained in detail in the previous chapter, but we will follow here with a brief overview of what is needed. py -d v8dev --addons-path="custom-addons,odoo/addons" --save The --save option saves the options you used in a config file.

Now read the error message in the server log carefully—it should point you to where the problem is. Creating views – form, tree, and search As we have seen, if no view is defined, Odoo will automatically generate basic views to get you going. But surely you would like to define the module views yourself, so that's what we'll do next. Odoo supports several types of views, but the three main ones are: list (also called tree), form, and search views. We'll add an example of each to our module. view model.

The filter domain used is defined the first instruction: it is a list of conditions, where each condition is a tuple. These conditions are implicitly joined with an AND operator ('&' in domain syntax). To add an OR operation a pipe ('|') is used in place of a tuple, and it will affect the next two conditions. We will go into more details about domains in Chapter 6, Views Designing the User Interface. uid) or don't have a current user set ('user_id', '=', False).
