Odoo tips of the month Feb 2015!

Please note down the ODOO tips coming out of Media around Odoo. - Inside your __openerp__.py, you may remove 'auto_install': False. The default value is False. - Use self.env.context instead of passing context as an argument. - Use self.env.cr anytime you wish to use cr related operations. - The xml files supports <odoo/> tag now. <data> tag is no more necessary on view. - Import statements have been made better:

-from openerp.osv import osv, fields
-from openerp import tools, SUPERUSER_ID
-from openerp.tools.translate import _
+from openerp import _, api, fields, models, SUPERUSER_ID, tools

- The default key can be specified in the field definition itself: fields.Selection([('a', 'SerpentCS'),('b', 'Odoo')], default='a') - self.pool.get(MODELNAME) becomes self.env[MODELNAME] - Use CamelCase for Classname in Odoo. example : class SaleOrder(). - Use UserError from "openerp.exceptions import UserError" instead of conventional "raise osv.except_orm". - Put all your view XML files under views directory. Put all your class files under models directory. - The webpages translation has been made quite nicely. - The import statements still have 'openerp', other conventions are moved to odoo. - On web modules, Model_pool.browse(request.cr, SUPERUSER_ID, order_id) can be replaced by "request.env[ModelName].sudo().browse(order_id)" Please see more Updates: 1.
