You need to install the python mpld3 library:

pip install mpld3


To insert a mpld3 chart in a view proceed as follows:

  1. Import the required libraries:

    import matplotlib.pyplot as plt, mpld3
  2. Declare a text computed field like this:

    mpld3_chart = fields.Text(
        string='Mpld3 Chart',
  3. In its computed method do:

    def _compute_mpld3_chart(self):
        for rec in self:
            # Design your mpld3 figure:
            plt.scatter([1, 10], [5, 9])
            figure = plt.figure()
            rec.mpld3_chart = mpld3.fig_to_html(figure)
  4. In the view, add something like this wherever you want to display your mpld3 chart:

        <field name="mpld3_chart" widget="mpld3_chart" nolabel="1"/>
