Features and Highlights
Be More Productive
Save time while PyCharm takes care of the routine. Focus on the bigger things and embrace the keyboard-centric approach to get the most of PyCharm’s many productivity features.
Get Smart Assistance
It knows everything about your code. Rely on it for intelligent code completion, on-the-fly error checking and quick-fixes, easy project navigation, and much more.
Boost Code Quality
Write neat and maintainable code while the IDE helps you keep control of the quality with PEP8 checks, testing assistance, smart refactorings, and a host of inspections.
Simply All You Need
The app is designed by programmers, for programmers, to provide all the tools you need for productive Python development.
Intelligent Python Assistance
It provides smart code completion, code inspections, on-the-fly errors highlighting, and quick-fixes, along with automated code refactorings and rich navigation capabilities.
Web Development Frameworks
It offers great framework-specific support for modern web development frameworks such as Django, Flask, Google App Engine, Pyramid, and web2py.
It integrates with IPython Notebook, has an interactive Python console, and supports Anaconda as well as multiple scientific packages including matplotlib and NumPy.
Remote Development Capabilities
Run, debug, test, and deploy applications on remote hosts or virtual machines, with remote interpreters, an integrated ssh terminal, and Docker and Vagrant integration.
Built-in Developer Tools
A huge collection of tools out of the box: an integrated debugger and test runner; Python profiler; a built-in terminal; and integration with major VCS and built-in Database Tools.
Support for Jupyter Notebooks was completely redesigned: directly edit notebook files and run cells straight from the editor. PyCharm will also automatically start a Jupyter Notebook server for you.
CSS quick docs
Modern CSS is very powerful, which means there’s a lot of concepts to understand. To help you to focus on the concepts rather than the order of shorthand properties, It improved the quick docs.
It’s easy to find a file, but usually, you’re not just looking for the file, but a specific place within the file. Recent locations show you the places you’ve seen recently and helped you navigate between them.
Note: Limited functionality in the demo/free version.
What’s new in this version:
– a bug where PEP 585 parameterized built-in classes were not recognized when using from __future__ import annotations
– a bug in Jupyter notebooks where the connection to the Python debugger failed when using ipykernel>=6.3.0
– a bug where custom external documentation URLs for the standard entries were getting removed upon IDE restart
– a bug where PyCharm was updating indexes on every startup if IDE was closed with OS shutdown
