Generate EAN13 Barcode Automatically + Print Barcode Label (v8)

I am seeking to do the following:

#1 When adding a new product we wish to automatically generate a new EAN13 barcode for that product. The generated bar code can be incremental.
I have figured out how to manually add the EAN13 barcodes, but would ideally like to generate them automatically on an incremental basis. 

#2 How can we print the EAN13 barcodes that are generated using our barcode label printer? 
I can not find an option in Odoo to "Print Barcode". Am I just missing this option or is there a 3rd party addon that will do this? 

me too want to know about it..

@David, In regards to #1 I've come across this python script to generate a random EAN13 barcode: https://github.com/maxmumford/random-ean13-generator It is not (yet) an odoo module, however it would probably not take too much work to package into an Odoo module.

thanks Luke. I'll look into this and see about converting it to a module.

thanks for sharing Rohan. It does look like that video could accomplish what I'm after but it starts at a point where above where I'm at. I do not currently have the option for "barcode product labels" under the "print" menu. How do I get that option?

Will do - I've sent you an email. As a note, we are using a commercial barcode printer that prints one sticker at a time, not multiple stickers on the same page. Does your module support that? The barcode printer we are using is a Zebra LP 2824. Thanks for your help!

Hello David, This report specially made for whom are not using thermal printer(like zebra...), that will directly print normal A4 size papersheet with laserjet printer. If you want to make a report for thermal printer then we will customize for you, for more info you put a mail contact@tidyway.in Nice to see you david.
