We are looking how we can format product descriptions and similar fields with html-tags line line breaks paragraphs unordered lists. Is there an option to add a HTML editor for such fields in Odoo 8?

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

Yes there is, just set the widget="html" in the field definition on the view like:

<field name="description" widget="html"/>


Define the field in the model like:

description = fields.Html('Description')

Thanks Axel,

is there an option to do this without changing core code?
