I am new into pyhton and OpenERP development. I have already install OpenERP 7 and try to create some basic addon (like web_hello) but I don't have autocomplete for openerp core addons. Already on first line

from osv import osv, fields

My IDE tell me: "Unresolved reference 'osv'" nad "Unresolved reference 'fields'".

I use PyCharm 3.4, but have same problem with Eclipse PyDev.

It might be a good idea to point your IDE to the osv directory of your odoo installation (something like odoo/openerp/osv) as an external library. I never worked with PyCharm but in eclipse there is a menuitem like "Pydev - Pythonpath" under your project properties.Pointing this to the appropriate directory might help.

For development ease, it might also be a good idea to make a project of the Odoo branch, so you can easily look up any code in Odoo itself.
