Check out: https://github.com/leio/openerp-7-web-addons

This is a fork of the module that you mentioned. There has been some work on this to make it compatible with v8.  In my testing, the above module mostly works.

John, thanks for the contribution, I have voted for you. However, excel work but not pdf do you have the same issue?

@jc, I created a fork that fixed one issue with pdfs here: https://github.com/michaeljohn32/openerp-7-web-addons Try that one and see if it works.

You can't install an openerp 7.0 module. You have to ask for the 8.0 version or you have to adapt it yourself. In this case you have to check where is that http import. Maybe on openerp.addons.web.http

There are so many things that you have to check. You can't install that module directly

I think that is not always true. I guess the first step would be to try it and it might work. I have a very simple custom Module that adds some fields to the Employees form view and that just works in 8.0

Is it better then to stay with version 7?

I personally think there are some huge advantages to moving to v.8 including better mrp, better orm, and the like. However, a migration should definitely be planned and fully tested!

Many thanks,

 I listen and installed ver 8
