How to customize journal entry view based on journal?

Before v7, it was possible to customize entries view based on journal using view_id field in account.journal but the feature removed in v7. I looking for the best option to customize the view (for example, showing tax, currency, product, .. only in relevant journals).

I have the following options in my mind:

  • Menu/action for each journal with special list/form views.
  • Modifying (inherit) current views to customize fields using attrs={...}
  • Override fields_view_get()

Is their any community module for this feature?

I hope those who had the same need share their experience to prevent the rest of us from reinventing the wheel.

Thanks in advance.
