Multiple versions covered

This Tutorial is going to show you how to activate the developer mode in Odoo. It covers versions 9, 10, 11 and 12. You will use the feature every time you want to personalize your Odoo. I have created this tutorial so I won't need to explain it in the future tutorials.

Since Odoo 10 the Developer Mode is activated from Settings.
