Apply theme to app

on 4/17/16, 9:52 AM 286 views


I am new to odoo, know only how to create and update modules and apps but have no idea about theming my modules

I have create my own app from scratch (depends on base only) and now I need to customize its look, something like changing colors, fonts and menus positions and behavior, all I have found while searching is to create a module based on website module and customize it, and frankly I have no idea how my module will get the changes I can made on the theme module?

I need step by step tutorial about this which is suite to what I know in Odoo

Look how it is done by other modules using the HTML Editor in the website builder, there you can see and also edit the qweb code. And how you build a website with Odoo is explained here: https://www.odoo.com/documentation/9.0/howtos/website.html
