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.

Logging in to/connecting Odoo with XML-RPC

In this recipe, we will carry out user authentication through RPC to check whether the credentials supplied are valid.

Getting ready

To connect an Odoo instance through RPC, you will need a running Odoo instance to connect with. We will assume that you have the Odoo server running on http://localhost:8069 and that you have installed the my_library module.

How to do it...

Perform the following steps to carry out user authentication through RPC:

  1. Add the file. You can place this file anywhere you want because the RPC program will work independently.
  2. Add the following code to the file:
    from xmlrpc import client
    server_url = 'http://localhost:8069'
    db_name = 'book-db-14'
    username = 'admin'
    password = 'admin'
    common = client.ServerProxy('%s/xmlrpc/2/common' %    
    user_id = common.authenticate(db_name...
