PyCharm 2019.2 Help

Creating Python Packages

PyCharm makes it possible to create Python packages recursively, thus creating the whole package structure.

The Python package nodes are marked with the package icon.

To create a new Python Package

  1. In the Project tool window, select the destination directory.

  2. From the context menu of the selection, choose New | Python Package, or press Alt+Insert to invoke the context menu:

    Create a package

  3. In the New Package dialog that opens, specify the package name.
    You can also specify nested packages; in this case, the names should be delimited with dots:

    package name

    Click OK. PyCharm creates the new package or package structure:
    generate package
