QWeb for email templates

This module was written to allow you to write email templates in QWeb instead of jinja2. The advantage here is that with QWeb, you can make use of inheritance and the call statement, which allows you to reuse designs and snippets in multiple templates, making your development process simpler. Furthermore, QWeb views are easier to edit with the integrated ACE editor.


To use this module, you need to:

  1. Select QWeb in the field Body templating engine
  2. Select a QWeb view to be used to render the body field


Apart from QWeb's standard variables, you also have access to:

  • object browse record of the current object
  • email_template browse record of email template in use
  • record depending on where the message is sent, object can be either the real record or the mail message used to send the email. In standard J2 templates this variable is available only for messages and only in the ctx. This variable tries to solve this issue and provides always the same variable.
  • record_name always provide the display name of current record
  • In addition to these, you'll find all the variables available for J2 templates: format_date, format_tz, format_amount, user, ctx. These will make easier to port existing J2 templates to Qweb.
