PyCharm Odoo 2022.2

Hello world!

It's been a month since my last blog post, and I'm here again to announce a new version of the PyCharm plugin for Odoo with lots of useful features.

New icons for code completion

In previous versions, I reused the existing Intellij Platform icons for all kinds of code completion in the Odoo plugin. In this release, I designed the new icons with colors derived from Odoo branding colors to give the code completion a new look and feel. Code completion types that have new icons in this release are: model name, field name, XML ID, context, selection, widget.

Code completion for selection ondelete

In Odoo 14, selection field has the new ondelete attribute that provides a fallback mechanism for any overridden field with a selection_add (documentation).
