PyCharm 2017.3 Help

Creating and Running


PyCharm provides an action that helps create script, intended for building, distributing, and installing modules.

Once is created, the corresponding action becomes disabled, but instead appears the action that allows running tasks of this utility.


To create for a project

  1. In the Project tool window, choose the project you want to package.
  2. On the main menu, choose Tools | Create
  3. In the New Setup Script dialog box, specify package name, version and the other required information:
    create setup py
  4. Click OK when ready. PyCharm creates and opens it in the editor.


To run a task of the utility

  1. On the main menu, choose Tools | Run
  2. In the Enter task name dialog box, type the letters of the task names. Note that asterisk wildcard and initial letters of the snake_case names are honored.

    As you type, the suggestion list shrinks to show the matching names only. Choose the desired task, and press Enter.

    py run setup script
