Create a Python project
Pure Python projects are intended for pure Python programming.
To create a project, do one of the following:
From the main menu, choose
On the Welcome screen, click Create New Project
New Project dialog opens.
In the New Project dialog, specify the project name and its location. The dialog may differ depending on the PyCharm edition.
Next, click to expand the Project Interpreter node, and select the new environment or existing interpreter, by clicking the corresponding radio-button.
The following steps depend on your choice:
Next, specify the Location and Base interpreter of the new virtual environment. If necessary, click the Inherit global site-packages and Make available to all projects check boxes.
When configuring the base interpreter, you need to specify the path to the Python executable. If PyCharm detects no Python on your machine, it provides two options: to download the latest Python versions from python.org or to specify a path to the Python executable (in case of non-standard installation).
Existing interpreter: if this option has been selected, choose the desired interpreter from the list, or (if the desired interpreter is not found), click and choose the interpreter. See Configure a Python interpreter for details.
Once you created a project, you can proceed with configuring the project structure.
