PyCharm Features

Intelligent Coding Assistance

PyCharm provides smart code completion, code inspections, on-the-fly error highlighting and quick-fixes, along with automated code refactorings and rich navigation capabilities.

Intelligent Code Editor

PyCharm’s smart code editor provides first-class support for Python, JavaScript, CoffeeScript, TypeScript, CSS, popular template languages and more. Take advantage of language-aware code completion, error detection, and on-the-fly code fixes!

Smart Code Navigation

Use smart search to jump to any class, file or symbol, or even any IDE action or tool window. It only takes one click to switch to the declaration, super method, test, usages, implementation, and more.

Fast and Safe Refactorings

Refactor your code the intelligent way, with safe Rename and Delete, Extract Method, Introduce Variable, Inline Variable or Method, and other refactorings. Language and framework-specific refactorings help you perform project-wide changes.

Built-in Developer Tools

PyCharm’s huge collection of tools out of the box includes an integrated debugger and test runner; Python profiler; a built-in terminal; integration with major VCS and built-in database tools; remote development capabilities with remote interpreters; an integrated ssh terminal; and integration with Docker and Vagrant.

Debugging, Testing and Profiling

Use the powerful debugger with a graphical UI for Python and JavaScript. Create and run your tests with coding assistance and a GUI-based test runner. Take full control of your code with Python Profiler integration.

VCS, Deployment and Remote Development

Save time with a unified UI for working with Git, SVN, Mercurial or other version control systems. Run and debug your application on remote machines. Easily configure automatic deployment to a remote host or VM and manage your infrastructure with Vagrant and Docker.

Database tools

Access Oracle, SQL Server, PostgreSQL, MySQL and other databases right from the IDE. Rely on PyCharm’s help when editing SQL code, running queries, browsing data, and altering schemas.

Web Development

In addition to Python, PyCharm provides first-class support for various Python web development frameworks, specific template languages, JavaScript, CoffeeScript, TypeScript, HTML/CSS, AngularJS, Node.js, and more.

Python Web frameworks

PyCharm offers great framework-specific support for modern web development frameworks such as Django, Flask, Google App Engine, Pyramid, and web2py, including Django templates debugger, manage.py and appcfg.py tools, special autocompletion and navigation, just to name a few.

JavaScript & HTML

PyCharm provides first-class support for JavaScript, CoffeeScript, TypeScript, HTML and CSS, as well as their modern successors. The JavaScript debugger is included in PyCharm and is integrated with the Django server run configuration.

Live Edit

Live Editing Preview lets you open a page in the editor and the browser and see the changes being made in code instantly in the browser. PyCharm auto-saves your changes, and the browser smartly updates the page on the fly, showing your edits.

Scientific Tools

PyCharm integrates with IPython Notebook, has an interactive Python console, and supports Anaconda as well as multiple scientific packages including Matplotlib and NumPy.

IPython Notebook integration

PyCharm integrates with IPython Notebook and delivers a solution that combines the advantages of IPython Notebook with extra benefits that the most intelligent Python IDE can offer, including autocompletion, navigation, error checking, etc.

Interactive Python console

You can run a REPL Python console in PyCharm which offers many advantages over the standard one: on-the-fly syntax check with inspections, braces and quotes matching, and of course code completion.

Support for scientific stack

PyCharm has special support for scientific libraries. It supports Anaconda, Numpy, Matplotlib and other scientific libraries, offering you deep code insight, interactive graphs, array viewers and much more.
