How to access the products collection from the homepage?

I'd like to access my product titles (or other fields) programmatically from a QWeb view (i.e. web page) that is NOT based on model data 'Products'. How would I best do that?

An example would be a simple website widget that loops through all products with t-foreach and lists all product titles.

For other people who are wondering the same - this is one option that worked for me:

1.) Create a module and a controller which obtains the data required and which you can call via a URL.

2) Insert an AJAX snippet on the homepage calling your controller to obtain the data.

I am certain there are other (and maybe better) ways...


@Frank, Thanks for the suggestions. Do you have a github repository with and example of the code you used to achieve this by any chance? I'm currently building this to add support for multiple product images for 8.0 as a community module: https://github.com/OdooCommunityWidgets/website_multi_image and i'm trying to figure out how to use t-foreach to output a list of all the images in the one2many in the module, however i'm just getting started with Odoo development and have hit a brick wall trying to figure this out. If you have examples that you're able to share on how you achieved the above i'd be very interested to take a look.
