Is there a way to automatically add custom print formats when installing a custom app?
I have a custom app that needs 2 print formats. Whenever I reinstall the app, the print formats need to be added again. Is there a way to bundle it together with the rest of the app?
Add as fixtures in your app hooks.py file.
fixtures = [
"doctype": "Print format",
"filters" : [
After this, run
Now you will see a .json file with print format data stored in fixtures folder. Push your app to repository and install it in other site. Print format will be there
This method is valid for any object stored in database (custom fields, reports, even predefined data in doctypes, etc …)
Hope this helps.
