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.

Chapter 24: Managing the IoT Box

Odoo provides support for the Internet of Things (IoT). The IoT is a network of devices/sensors that exchange the data over the internet. By connecting such devices with a system, you can use them. For instance, by connecting a printer with Odoo, you can send PDF reports directly to the printer. Odoo uses a piece of hardware called the IoT Box, which is used to connect devices such as printers, calipers, payment devices, footswitches, and more. In this chapter, you will learn how to set up and configure the IoT Box. Here, we'll cover the following topics:

  • Flashing the IoT Box image for Raspberry Pi
  • Connecting the IoT Box with a network
  • Adding the IoT Box to Odoo
  • Loading drivers and listing connected devices
  • Taking input from devices
  • Accessing the IoT Box through SSH
  • Configuring a point of sale
  • Sending PDF reports directly to a printer

Note that the goal of this chapter is to install and configure the IoT...
