Odoo Website – Data Slider Snippet

LasLabs has released a new Odoo version 9 website snippet that provides a SlickJS carousel for any dataset.

website_snippet_data_slider is an Open Source Odoo module licensed under AGPL-3.

It is a part of the LasLabs Odoo web package, which can be found on the following sources:

  • Install website_snippet_data_slider module
  • Drop Data Slider building block anywhere on your site
  • Edit the configuration options to your liking
  • Save

usage for this widget is likely a product carousel.
