Configure content roots

ItemTooltipDescription
/help/img/idea/rootSource.gif 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.

/help/img/idea/rootExcluded.gif 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.

/help/img/idea/template_folder_icon.pngTemplates 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.
