Odoo Code Generation
How to generate the Odoo Addon
Click the menu (Tools > Odoo > Generate Code...)
Select a base model (or package) that will be generated to Odoo
Select a folder where generated Odoo source files (.py, .xml, .csv) will be placed. This will be the addon folder name
Rules when diagramming the UML for Odoo Add-on
Below are the rules to convert from UML model elements to Odoo source codes.
Click Tools > Odoo > Configure to set your addon setting
Addon Name: is your addon folder name and act also as the namespace for your classes
Dependecies: type your addon dependencies as comma separated string values, for example: "hr", "account", etc.
Docstring: Yes or No to wether generate to documentation string on your class or not
Installation Path: your python installation path (optional)
Use Tab: whether you want to use Tab character instead of spaces on your python indentation
Indent Spaces: number of indent spaces on your python code.
Odoo object name
Odoo object name is the class field called _name on Odoo ORM
Odoo object name is automatically generated based on "addonName" (namespace) and "className", eg "my_addon.my_object"
you may force you Odoo object name different from your UML class name by creating an attributed called _name on the class and set the name on _defaultValue field, eg module.classname. This _name attribute is mandatory if you to inherit your Odoo object from another Object
Odoo inherit object
If the object is inherted from other Odoo object, create a attribute called _inherit
the parent object is set on defaultValue field, eg res.partner
Every attribute on UML class is converted into Odoo object field
Set the Odoo field type on type field
Example Char will be converted to fields.Char(), Integer to fields.Integer()
Odoo help attributes
The Documentation field will be converted to help= attribute on Odoo field
converted to a python _Package_ (as a folder with `__init__.py`).
converted to a python Class definition as a separated module (`.py`).
documentation property to docstring
converted to a python class inherited from _Enum_ as a separated module (`.py`).
literals converted to class variables
converted to an instance variable with Odoo relation type: Many2one, One2many, or Many2many
name property to field name
documentation property to field help attribute
If `multiplicity` is one of `0..*`, `1..*`, `*`, then the variable will be initialized with:
`0..*` or `1..*` : fields.Many2one()
`1` : fields.One2many()
`*` : fields.Many2many()
converted to an instance method if `isStatic` property is true, or a class method (`@classmethod`) if `isStatic` property is false
`name` property to identifier
`documentation` property to docstring
_UMLParameter_ to method parameter
