PyCharm hits Beta with a 50% discount for 1.0

With over 10 EAP builds behind and a great deal of positive and useful feedback from early adopters we are ready to announce the Beta for JetBrains PyCharm — a breakthrough IDE for Python & Django.

This leaves only a small step to the 1.0 release which is due out this Fall. During the homestretch we are going to concentrate on product stability and performance.

We’ve also revealed the pricing for PyCharm on the official web site. In addition, during the Beta period everyone can now get a 50% discount coupon for PyCharm by submitting a request to JetBrains. Once version 1.0 is out the coupons can be used to purchase the IDE at half-price.

Also, we’ve published a first part of PyCharm quick start guide. Stay tuned for more guides and demos soon.

Download PyCharm Beta and make sure you request the discount to save on PyCharm 1.0!

      A new version of the Python plugin will be released when the EAP for IDEA 10 starts. The Python code base uses many new core features that were added in IDEA 10, and we don’t currently plan to backport the new code to the IDEA 9 core.

    What level of javascript support does pycharm have? I’m trying to decide between pycharm and webstorm. Webstorm for the javascript support. Pycharm was quite a bit behind webstorm when I last looked. How is it now and what are your plans?

      The JavaScript support in PyCharm and WebStorm comes from exactly the same source code, and there should be no (intentional) differences in functionality. If you find some WebStorm features that are missing in PyCharm, please file issues at

    That is disappointing. When researching whether to upgrade my Intellij license or buy PhpStorm and PyCharm it seemed clear which path to take. Responses to forum topics by JetBrains staff consistently claimed that Intellij was the companies premier IDE and the best choice for polygot programming – no mention of any drawbacks with owning Intellij over the language specific IDEs. Now that PyCharm is being developed on a different code base, there clearly are some drawbacks.

    I can understand the issues you face keeping the various IDEs in step. However, you need to provide more information on your website to enable potential purchasers to correctly choose the right product(s).

    If Intellij is meant to be a superset of all the features in the individual language IDEs, why no make the Intellij license key valid for all IDEs.

    Good as it is, The support for javascript in pycharm is inferior to webstorm. The pycharm code style settings are missing two important panes that let you fine tune javascript formatting in webstorm: alignment & braces and wrapping.

    Another pycharm shortcoming when compared to webstorm is that the structure tool window doesn’t work for html files, only for js/py/css.

    How to uninstall PyCharm on Windows? Is there a correct (not manual removal) way?
    It is not resisted itself in the system ‘Uninstall Programs’ and have no uninstall link in menu!

      PyCharm is listed in Add/Remove Programs as “JetBrains PyCharm”. Alternatively, you can run binUninstall.exe from the PyCharm installation directory manually.

        There is no point in debating which IDE is the best. This is a meattr of personal taste and preferences. I use XDevelop (former Codeguide). I did not even bother looking at other IDEs (Eclipse, IDEA, Netbeans), although I know they have more features and nice things. Why? The IDE I use does it’s job. Also I do not have time and I am not willing to learn another set of shortcuts for a different IDE.

    Nice, the recent release of PyCharm 1.0 Beta 2 now supports the Structure View not only for plain HTML files but also for Django templates.

    Still missing are the two WebStorm Code Style submenus for fine-tuning Javascript formatting: “Alignment and Braces” and “Wrapping”.

    Keep up the good work!
