Buildout

Introduction

PyCharm supports buildout in the following activities:

Prerequisites

PyCharm recognizes buildout support in existing projects. However, you have to perform the following general steps as prerequisites (outside of PyCharm):

  1. Add buildout.cfg and setup.py files to the root directory of your project.
  2. Check out bootstrap.py and place it to the root directory of your project.
  3. Execute bootstrap.py to create the buildout directory structure, download buildout.exe, and the other dependencies.
  4. Execute bin\buildout.exe script. This will download the dependencies and generate a runner script for each of the parts listed in buildout.cfg.

Buildout Support

Buildout files are marked with python icons com jetbrains python buildout buildout icon.

Buildout support includes:

  • capability to enable Buildout support for a project, and specify the script to be used for resolving references in the source code.
  • Code completion.
  • Error and syntax highlighting.
  • Code formatting and folding.
