In a custom module, I'm trying to import a file that doesn't exist in the addons directory.
My file path: /home/wided/settings.py
Addons path: /usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/openerp-server/addons
How can I import settings.py to my module?
Make a symbolic link to the file in your module?
cd /usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/openerp-server/addons/my_module/ ln -s /home/wided/settings.py
This creates the symlink settings.py in the folder my_module. Then in a different script in that folder,
I can't think of a situation where I'd want to use this setup over just putting the settings.py file in the module folder itself though. Even making a symlink from the module folder to your home folder sounds like a better idea.
