PyCharm makes it possible to execute the init procedure on a project root. After performing init on a project root, the Vagrant configuration file named Vagrantfile is created there. This file can be used for creating a remote interpreter.
- On the main menu, choose .
- In the Select Vagrant Folder pop-up menu, select the project root to be used:
- Since it is possible to have multiple virtual boxes, specify the particular box you want to work with:
The vagrant init command is launched, and shows its output messages in the Run tool window.
If the Vagrant executable is not specified in the Vagrant page, you can still initialize a Vagrant box. However, in this situation, PyCharm pops up a file browser, enabling you to select Vagrant executable.
Once init is successfully completed, you are ready to perform vagrant up command and import to the root the box used at initialization.
