Remove link from many2one field widget in Odoo

In form view’s read mode, many2many fields are rendered by default as links pointing to the referenced objects. Often times this is undesirable, especially when referencing simple models.

You can change this behavior and simply display referenced object’s name, without linking to it, using widget option called no_open:

<field name="city" options="{'no_open': True}"/>

Very simple, but undocumented.
