Projects pane

Item Description

Configure content roots pane

Item Tooltip Description
rootSource Sources Mark a folder as a source root. Such folder displays in the list of source roots.

If a folder is marked as a source root, it will be added to PYTHONPATH, and resolve will be performed against it.

This command is duplicated on the context menu of a content root.

rootExcluded Excluded Mark a folder as an excluded root.

Excluded roots are not visible to PyCharm. Usually, one would like to exclude temporary build folders, generated output, logs, and other project output. Excluding the unnecessary paths is a good way to significantly improve performance.

This command is duplicated on the context menu of a content root.

template_folder_icon Templates Mark a folder as a template root, where all the directories, containing templates in the supported template languages, are stored.

This command is duplicated on the context menu of a content root.

Note

By default, the directory that has been defined as the templates folder on project creation , is marked as template_folder_icon.
Note that if a directory is specified in the TEMPLATES_DIR of the settings.py file, then, on the first project opening, it is automatically marked as the template root.
