Mako script rendering with jinja templating. Not sure but I think for v7 there was a needed patch to use mako over jinja.  In any case it is related to the templating and not the wkhtmlpdf part (which by the way is the same as QWeb).

Dear Ferdinand,

TemplateSyntaxError: expected token ',', got 'for'

and the error came from this mako script :

${blank_line(16,nourut([line for line in o.order_line], l)) or ''}
<td colspan="2" valign="top">
<table width="100%" cellpadding="5px">
<tr valign="top">

if I remove the red-colored line, it works properly. Seems that the new webkit report engine don't recognise a single line such as that.

I'm a newbie for openerp technical and webkit is very powerful for me, if Odoo will drop this support, then it's really bad.

please check if wkhtml is supported in v9 - odoo plans to drop the support - use qweb instead (if you are on v8)

You have the wkhtml reporting engine and it is pretty cool

What would everyone suggest as the best means of report building in V8?

Ideally I'd like to be able to use HTML/CSS to build a report template, and have wkhtmltopdf pick it up and generate a PDF based on the report.

What is the best means of building reports using HTML/CSS

​ Thanks in advanced.​
