Module shows JS instead of executing code

Hi All,

I followed the following example:


to setup a basic module.

I can install it using the web interface (install/update/upgrade) and no errors are shown.

In order to access the example it should be OK to go to: localhost:8069/web_example/static/src/js/first_module.js to directly load the module (without the need to find it in the menu of openERP)

However it is not executing but just showing the JS code as plain text. No errors or anything else except the code from the example here...

I googled but cannot find anything to solve this (configuration?) problem...might be versy simple though...

Any help is welcome ;-) Thanks...

A script js must be loaded by the web page and not dirrectly, for exemple in ths page the openerp.com use some js file to do some work on the page e:


If you copy this link on the url you will see the code js but it will not be executed, to be executed it must be loaded by the page itself.

I hope this answer respond to your question.
