Documentation Look-up in External JavaScript Libraries

This feature is only supported in the Professional edition.

Look-up in external libraries

From PyCharm, you can also view documentation for symbols defined in external JavaScript libraries and frameworks. Upon pressing Shift+F1 with the cursor positioned at the symbol in question, PyCharm invokes the corresponding link and opens the documentation page in the default PyCharm browser.

To enable the external JavaScript library lookup functionality

  1. Download the required libraries or frameworks.
  2. Configure the downloads as libraries at the PyCharm level.
  3. Specify links to external documentation.

To view documentation on a symbol defined in an external JavaScript library
