Odoo is the world's easiest all-in-one management software. It includes hundreds of business apps:
CRM | e-Commerce | Accounting | Inventory | PoS | Project management | MRP | etc.
I really would like to know more about the report generation pipeline and the differents steps before actual generation: when template inheritance is made, when qweb tags (<t>) and attributes are parsed and so on. Details are welcome. Also, is the pipeline different when doing HTML or PDF generation ?
I am on Odoo 8, by the way.
Is the same for HTML or PDF. For those specific details and also not a very explicit question I suggest that you need to read the source code of the report module and the qweb rendering template engine at base module. QWEB Reports are just QWEB templates rendering as HTML and for PDF files they just use the lib WKHTMLTOPDF to convert it into a PDF file. But the details are on the source code
