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.

Populating random data for testing

So far, we have seen test cases that have been used to detect errors or bugs in business logic. However, at times we need to test our development with large amounts of data. Generating large amounts of data can be a tedious job. Odoo provides a set of tools that helps you to generate a lot of random data for your model. In this recipe, we will use the populate command to generate test data for the model.

Getting ready

For this recipe, we will continue using the my_library module from the previous recipe. We will add the _populate_factories method, which will be used to generate test data.

How to do it...

Follow these steps to generate data for the model:

  1. Add a populate folder in the my_library module. Also, add an file with this content:
    from . import library_data
  2. Add a my_library/populate/ file and add this code to generate the book's data:
    from odoo import models
