In v8 adding of static files is different as v7.

You must define static files in view, where you inheriting core views.

1. in module folder create folder named views

2. create in where file named: you_module_name.xml

3. in __openerp.py__ add: 'data': ['views/you_module_name.xml']

4. in you_module_name.xml add: 

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
        <template id="assets_backend" name="you_module_name assets" inherit_id="web.assets_backend">
            <xpath expr="." position="inside">
                <link rel="stylesheet" href="/you_module_name/static/src/css/you_module_name.css"/>
                <script type="text/javascript" src="/you_module_name/static/src/js/you_module_name.js"></script>

Thanks a lot. That helped me a lot. I've created my own module to add only css and js to POS since I don't want that everywhere. And everything is working like a charm. Thanks for the guide.

If I want to override some css in the file /home/odoo/addons/point_of_sale/static/src/css/pos.css. But when I enter in my POS, my CSS are not applied when I declare it like you. How to override CSS from the file pos.css?

I haven't found this in the documentation... isn't there any easier way? Creating a whole xml with xpath inheritance sounds like too much work for adding a simple css class...


And what kind of view is this, the template tag is not familiar to me. Is this a QWeb Template? I didn't use QWeb Templates for my module - do I have to create some?

I thought that the template would need some extra customization, but I only had to change "you_module_name" and make sure that the path for css / js was correct. Thanks for the template!
