Have you heard of PyCharm IDE yet?

There are many great programming languages. And today we often pick one that fits best for a particular task. IntelliJ IDEA is a great IDE for polyglot programming offering out-of the box support for many languages plus a variety of language plugins.

Last year we’ve started creating language-specific IDEs such RubyMine for Ruby/Rails and Web IDE for HTML, JavaScript and PHP. Recently we’ve made available public preview of a new specialized IDE built on the IntelliJ platform — JetBrains PyCharm.

PyCharm is the environment for programming using Python and for web-development with Django framework.

Obviously, JetBrains PyCharm inherits all the functionality of the latest IntelliJ IDEA 9.0 for editing HTML, CSS, JavaScript, XML, working with VCS and more.

PyCharm 1.0 will be available later this year.

Download Public preview of PyCharm now to try it.

Read more about JetBrains PyCharm and participate in the Early Access Program.

We are going to continue to develop and release the Python plugin for IntelliJ IDEA. The plugin will remain free for all users of IntelliJ IDEA Ultimate.

Develop with pleasure,
JetBrains Team

    Congrutulations on the new product, it looks great. I’m not developing anything in Python right now, but it’s really refreshing to see JetBrains supporting dynamic languages like Ruby and Python.

    I tried the IDE. I spent about twenty minutes trying to set it up with my django application. It didn’t detect my interpreters properly – it picked up python 3.0 which didn’t have django in it’s path. I had to go through some hoops to make it use python 2.6 which I’m using for the application right now.

    Vi emulation would be really nice. Also, if there are any suggestions on fixing the IDE’s fonts on linux (even the best monospaced fonts like inconsolata and Consolas look bad in Pycharm), that would be killer. Please put up some demos of debugging, better code intelligence and starting off on top of an existing project.

    Congrats for this new product, it is exactly what Python community needs, a professional IDE.
    I have a suggestion:
    What not to create an IDE that combines PHP, Ruby and Python?
    It will be the ultimate IDE for the majority of developers (I think)?
    Any way, congrats one more time.

    Very nice. Congratulations.

    The only thing I miss is a ZIP download (aka a portable version without installer), like there’s for WebIDE (err PHP or Web Storm now 🙂 ).

    Is there a way to make it portable now?
