Kanban views

Up until now, we have presented the user with a list of records that can be opened to show a form. While those lists are efficient when presenting a lot of information, they tend to be rather dull given the lack of design possibilities. In this recipe, we'll have a look at kanban views, which allow us to present lists of records in a more appealing way.

    <record id="kanban_all_customers" model="ir.ui.view">
        <field name="model">res.partner</field>
        <field name="arch" type="xml">

                <field name="name" />
                <field name="supplier" />
                <field name="customer" />
  3. Do some design:

                    <t t-name="kanban-box">
                        <div class="oe_kanban_card">
                            <a type="open">
                                <field name...
