Project description

Beta License: LGPL-3 OCA/rest-framework Translate me on Weblate Try me on Runbot

This addon provides a utility method that can be used to map odoo record to a Pydantic model.

If you need to make your Pydantic models extendable at runtime, takes a look at the python package extendable-pydantic and the odoo addon extendable

Table of contents


To support pydantic models that map to Odoo models, Pydantic model instances can be created from arbitrary odoo model instances by mapping fields from odoo models to fields defined by the pydantic model. To ease the mapping, the addon provide a utility class odoo.addons.pydantic.utils.GenericOdooGetter.

import pydantic
from odoo.addons.pydantic import utils

class Group(pydantic.BaseModel):
    name: str

    class Config:
        orm_mode = True
        getter_dict = utils.GenericOdooGetter

class UserInfo(pydantic.BaseModel):
    name: str
    groups: List[Group] = pydantic.Field(alias="groups_id")

    class Config:
        orm_mode = True
        getter_dict = utils.GenericOdooGetter

user = self.env.user
user_info = UserInfo.from_orm(user)

See the official Pydantic documentation to discover all the available functionalities.
