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.

Chapter 4: Application Models

The recipes in this chapter will make small additions to an existing add-on module. In the previous chapter, we registered our add-on module in the Odoo instance. In this chapter, we will dive deeply into the database side of the module. We will add a new model (database table), new fields, and constraints. We will also examine the use of inheritance in Odoo. We will be using the module we created in the recipes in Chapter 3, Creating Odoo Add-On Modules.

In this chapter, we will cover the following recipes:

  • Defining the model representation and order
  • Adding data fields to a model
  • Using a float field with configurable precision
  • Adding a monetary field to a model
  • Adding relational fields to a model
  • Adding a hierarchy to a model
  • Adding constraint validations to a model
  • Adding computed fields to a model
  • Exposing related fields stored in other models
  • Adding dynamic relations using reference fields
  • Adding features...
