  • Run/debug configurations.

  • Ability to create tests .

  • Ability to navigate between tests and test subjects.

  • Ability to run tests from within the IDE, and view test results in the test runner UI. The test results are shown on the Test Runner tab of the Run tool window.

  • Ability to run all tests or features in a directory, specific test classes, test cases or features, individual test methods or examples.

  • Code inspections.

  • In docstrings:
    • PyCharm recognizes Python code, provides syntax highlighting, code completion and resolve, and Python inspections.

    • Ability to recognize Python code can be turned on or off.
