Hello all,

    In the file :


    There is the method :

        def login_redirect()

            url = '/web/loginPTPTPTPT555?'

            # built the redirect url, keeping all the query parameters of the url

            redirect_url = '%s?%s' % (request.httprequest.base_url, werkzeug.urls.url_encode(request.params))

            return """<html><head><script>

            window.location = '%sredirect=' + encodeURIComponent("%s" + location.hash);


            """ % (url, redirect_url)

How to override such a method who is not in a class?

I could help you to develop anything and solve complex problems based on technologies, integrations and tricky stuffs mostly in Python with OpenERP/Odoo, Zato, Django and many others frameworks programming languages and technologies.

I offers consulting services to anyone with an unanswered questions or needs for customizations. Think about it, maybe it's better to have an expert to solve your issues and projects than having a full-time employee trying to understand what to do and how

This is what it's called monkey patch. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monkey_patch)

Like this:

from openerp.addons.web.controllers import main
def new_login_redirect():
main.login_redirect = new_login_redirect

very interesting. Will try it soon. Thanks again Axel!

Is this a good way to work or not?

Obviously is not the first choice and is not good if you have another way to do it, if you don't have an alternative? You can go with this method, I used, Gevent used and I'm sure more people is using it.
