PyCharm Edu 2017.3 Help

Managing Projects under Version Control

This section contains information related to sharing PyCharm Edu project files with the other developers:

Directory based project format

The project settings are stored in the .idea directory. This format is used by all PyCharm Edu versions by default. Here is what you need to share:

  • All the files under .idea directory in the project root except workspace.xml and tasks.xml, storing user-specific settings.

Sharing run/debug configurations

You might want to share run/debug configurations. To do that, just select the checkbox Share in the selected run/debug configuration dialog box.

The shared run/debug configurations are kept in separate xml files under .idea\runConfigurations folder, while the local run/debug configurations are kept in the .idea\workspace.xml.

Sharing inspection profiles

To share inspection profiles, make sure to select the checkbox Share profile on the Inspections page of the Settings dialog.

The shared inspection profiles are stored in separate xml files under .idea\inspectionProfiles folder, while the local profiles are kept in the .idea\workspace.xml.
