Base module that provide the jsonify method on all models

Project description

Beta License: AGPL-3 OCA/server-tools Translate me on Weblate Try me on Runbot

This module adds a ‘jsonify’ method to every model of the ORM. It works on the current recordset and requires a single argument ‘parser’ that specify the field to extract.

Example of parser:

parser = [
    ('partner_id', ['id', 'display_name', 'ref'])
    ('line_id', ['id', ('product_id', ['name']), 'price_unit'])

In order to be consitent with the odoo api the jsonify method always return a list of object even if there is only one element in input

By default the key into the json is the name of the field extracted from the model. If you need to specify an alternate name to use as key, you can define your mapping as follow into the parser definition:

parser = [
parser = [
    ('partner_id:partners', ['id', 'display_name', 'ref'])
    ('line_id:lines', ['id', ('product_id', ['name']), 'price_unit'])

Also the module provide a method “get_json_parser” on the ir.exports object that generate a parser from an ir.exports configuration
