When you configure a project Python interpreter, you need to specify the path to the Python executable in your system. So, before configuring a project interpreter, you need to ensure that you've downloaded Python and installed it in your system and you're aware of a path to it. You can create several project interpreters based on the same Python executable. This is helpful when you need to create different virtual environments for developing different types of applications. For example, you can create one virtual environment based on Python 3.6 to develop Django applications and another virtual environment based on the same Python 3.6 to work with scientific libraries.
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.
Click (More Settings), and specify the following:
If necessary, select the Use local Web2Py checkbox. With this checkbox selected, the text field next to this checkbox become enabled. Click the browse button to select Web2Py source folder from your file system.
PyCharm creates an application and produces specific directory structure, which you can explore in the Project tool window. If there are unsatisfied requirements, PyCharm suggests to resolve or ignore them.
