Overview of this book

With its latest iteration, the powerful Odoo framework released a wide variety of features for rapid application development. This updated Odoo development cookbook will help you explore the new features in Odoo 14 and learn how to use them to develop Odoo applications from scratch. You'll learn about the new website concepts in Odoo 14 and get a glimpse of Odoo's new web-client framework, the Odoo Web Library (OWL). Once you've completed the installation, you'll begin to explore the Odoo framework with real-world examples. You'll then create a new Odoo module from the ground up and progress to advanced framework concepts. You'll also learn how to modify existing applications, including Point of Sale (POS) applications. This book isn't just limited to backend development; you'll discover advanced JavaScript recipes for creating new views and widgets. As you progress, you'll learn about website development and become a quality Odoo developer by studying performance optimization, debugging, and automated testing. Finally, you'll delve into advanced concepts such as multi-website, In-App Purchasing (IAP),, the IoT Box, and security. By the end of the book, you'll have all the knowledge you need to build impressive Odoo applications and you'll be well versed in development best practices that will come in handy when working with the Odoo framework.

Understanding the OWL component life cycle

OWL components have several methods that help developers to create powerful and interactive components. In this recipe, we will see important methods of the components and the life cycle when these methods are called. In this recipe, we will add several methods to the component, and we will log the message in the console to understand the life cycle of the component.

Getting ready

For this recipe, we will continue using the my_library module from the previous recipe.

How to do it...

To add life cycle methods to the component, you need to carry out the following steps:

  1. As we already have a constructor in the component, let's add a message to the console like this:
    constructor() {
        console.log('CALLED:> constructor');
  2. Add the willStart method to the component:
    async willStart() {
        console.log('CALLED:> willStart');
  3. Add the mounted method...
