Géry Debongnie is in charge of the web client team at Odoo R&D department. He is one of the main contributors for several large projects on the web client, including: the pivot table view, speed improvements efforts in Odoo 10, the Odoo 9 material design and responsive UI, Odoo Studio and the javascript views.


The Odoo web client is based on a custom javascript framework, which includes a  class system, a widget system, a template engine, various helpers and more. This framework is quite powerful, it works well, and is an important part of the user experience.  

However, since the conception of the Odoo framework, a lot of things have happened in the javascript ecosystem. Other frameworks evolved and solved various difficult issues. For example, the state of the art moved toward declarative and composable component systems. We want a solid foundation to build our web client and our various applications.  

This talk, targeted at javascript developers, will focus on the future evolution of the Odoo framework. This year, a lot of work was done to prepare Odoo, at the framework level, for the future. I will discuss how we will update our framework (and most notably the widget system), and what it implies for the Odoo ecosystem.
