PyCharm Edu recognizes buildout support in existing projects. However, you have to perform the following general steps as prerequisites (outside of PyCharm Edu):

  1. Add buildout.cfg and files to the root directory of your project.
  2. Check out and place it to the root directory of your project.
  3. Execute to create the buildout directory structure, download buildout.exe, and the other dependencies.
  4. Execute bin\buildout.exe script. This will download the dependencies and generate a runner script for each of the parts listed in buildout.cfg.
