IntelliJ IDEA 2018.1 Help

Installing and Uninstalling Interpreter Paths

Introduction

IntelliJ IDEA makes it possible to add paths to the selected interpreter. In doing so, these paths will be added to the environment varaible PYTHONPATH. Also, IntelliJ IDEA will index these paths and (potentially) resolve the objects of the code (for example, imports of packages)

Viewing interpreter paths

To view the interpreter paths

  1. Open the Project Structure dialog (e.g. Ctrl+Shift+Alt+S).
  2. In the Project Structure dialog box, click SDKs node under the Platform Settings.
  3. Select the desired interpreter.
  4. View the interpreter paths in the Classpath tab:
    ij interpreter packages

Adding interpreter paths

To add an interpreter path

  1. In the toolbar of the SDKs page of the Project Structure dialog box, click add.

To delete interpreter paths

  1. Select the paths to be deleted.
