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.

Connecting the IoT Box with a network

The IoT Box communicates with an Odoo instance through the network. Connecting the IoT Box is a crucial step and if you make a mistake here, you might encounter errors when connecting the IoT Box with Odoo.

Getting ready

Mount the microSD card with the IoT Box image into the Raspberry Pi and then connect the Raspberry Pi with the power supply.

How to do it...

Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ supports two types of network connection—Ethernet and Wi-Fi.

Connecting the IoT Box through Ethernet is simple; you just need to connect your IoT Box with the RJ45 Ethernet cable, and the IoT Box is then ready to be used. Connecting the IoT Box through Wi-Fi is complicated as you might not have a display attached to it. Perform the following steps to connect the IoT Box through Wi-Fi:

  1. Connect the IoT Box with the power supply (if the Ethernet cable is plugged into the IoT Box, remove it and restart the IoT Box).
  2. Open your computer...
