PyCharm 2016.2 Help

App Engine Project Settings

Create New Project Dialog - Google App Engine Project - OK

Use this dialog box to configure App Engine project settings.

Application IDIn this field, enter the identifier that you have already defined on the Create application page of the Google App Engine. The application identifier should meet certain requirements: only lower-case letters, digits, and "-" characters are allowed; the application id should not begin with "-".
App Engine SDK folder PyCharm automatically detects the GAE installation path, and displays it in this field. If you want to use a different installation, specify the path to the desired Google App Engine SDK.

Auto-detection works for Windows and OS X. For Linux, you have to specify the App Engine SDK yourself.

Templates directoryIn this field, specify the directory where the templates will be stored, and where they will be loaded from. You can specify the name of the directory that doesn't yet exist; in this case, the directory will be created.
Enable Django supportIf this check box is selected, Django application will be generated. The following two fields become enabled:
  • Project name. This read-only field displays the project name defined in the Create New Project dialog box.
  • Application name. In this field, type the name of the Django application. The folder with this name, containing the corresponding stub files, will be generated under the project root.
OKClick this button to create the new project with the specified name.
If the dialog has been invoked from the Welcome Screen, the new project will be created immediately. If the dialog box has been invoked from an existing project, PyCharm will suggest to select a window where the new project will be opened: replace the current project in the existing window, or open a new one, and continue working with multiple projects.
CancelClick this button to cancel operation and close the dialog box. Note that an empty folder with the project name and location you have specified in the Create New Project dialog box will be preserved.
