PyCharm 4.5.3 Help

Running Applications

PyCharm enables running entire applications as well as particular scripts.

When running an application, PyCharm uses the settings defined in the Run/Debug Configuration dialog box. All run configurations that exist in a project, are available in the Select Run/Debug Configuration drop-down list on the main toolbar:


To run an application

  • On the main toolbar, select the desired run configuration, and do one of the following:
    • Choose Run | Run on the main menu.
    • Click img.
    • Press Shift+F10.

Alternatively, you can press Shift+Alt+F10, select the desired run configuration from the pop-up menu, and press Enter.


From this pop-up menu you can:

  • Invoke Edit Configuration dialog.
  • Edit the selected configuration before launch (F4).
  • Instantly delete a temporary configuration (Delete).
  • Switch from run to debug and vice versa (hold Shift).
  • Access a previously selected configuration (1).
  • Access context-dependent configuration (2 or 3).

This pop-up menu can also be quickly accessed by pressing F9, when you're not running any debug session.

Note that after you've started a run session, the run icon that marks the Run tool window toggles to active_run_icon to indicate that the run process is active.

To run a script with a temporary run/debug configuration

  1. Open the desired script in the editor, or select it in the Project tool window.
  2. Choose Run <name > on the context menu, or press Ctrl+Shift+F10. So doing, a temporary run/debug configuration is created on-the-fly.
