mr.bob templates for Odoo projects

Project Description

bobtemplates.odoo is a set of mr.bob templates to use when developing Odoo addons.

It provides the following templates:

  • addon: an addon skeletton, with optional OCA README and icon
  • model: an Odoo model with accompanying form, tree, action, menu, demo data and ACL
  • test: a test class
  • wizard: a wizard with transient model, view and action

The following are candidates (pull requests welcome):

  • report
  • controller
  • widget


pip install bobtemplates.odoo


CAUTION: it is recommanded to backup or vcs commit your current directory before running these commands, so you can easily see what has been generated and/or changed.

Create a new addon in the current directory:

mrbob bobtemplates.odoo:addon

Now go to the newly created addon directory and run this to add a new model, with associated views, demo data, and acl:

mrbob bobtemplates.odoo:model

Add a test class:

mrbob bobtemplates.odoo:test

Tip: read the mr.bob user guide. In particular it explains how to set default values to avoid retyping the same answers at each run (such as the copyright author).
