Allows to drag files into Odoo

Project description

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

This module extends the functionality of the web client to support dropping local files into the web client.

By default, an attachment will be created when dropping a file on a form.

Further, this module is meant as a base drag&drop module supporting other actions after some file is dropped so that other modules can add more features.
