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), Odoo.sh, 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.

Taking input from devices

The IoT Box only supports limited devices. Right now, these hardware devices are integrated with the manufacturing application. But if you want, you can integrate supported devices with your module. In this recipe, we will capture a picture from a camera through our IoT Box.

Getting ready

We will be using the my_library module from the Logging user changes in a chatter recipe of Chapter 23, Managing Emails in Odoo. In this recipe, we will add a new field to capture and store images when a borrower returns a book. Make sure the IoT Box is on and that you have connected a supported camera device with it.

How to do it...

Perform the following steps to capture a picture using a camera with the IoT Box:

  1. Add a dependency in the manifest file:
    ... 
    'depends': ['base', 'mail', 'quality_iot'],
    ...
  2. Add new fields in the library.book.rent model:
    ...
    device_id = fields.Many2one('iot.device', string...
