Project description

Add new text field form widget

This module adds a new widget for text field in form view on Odoo:

  • In readonly mode, it uses text contents to parse and render them to html markdown syntax.
  • In write mode, use [bootstrap-markdown][1]

[1]: “bootstrap-markdown”


It was tested on openerp trunk, 8.0 branch.


Your XML form view definition should contain:

<field name="field_name" widget="bootstrap_markdown"/>
