Today’s Early Access Preview build of PyCharm brings with it a major new feature: PyCharm now supports the development of Flask Web applications. In order to showcase the details of the support, we’ve recorded a screencast:
A special thing to note is that the Flask plugin is fully open-source, and can be used as an example for developing other framework support plugins for PyCharm. You can find its source code on GitHub. In the coming days, we plan to publish additional documentation on PyCharm’s OpenAPI and the internals of the Flask plugin.
Besides that, we’ve continued our efforts to improve the quality of PyCharm’s code inspections, as well as fixed a number of bugs. You can find more information about that in the release notes.
As usual, the build is available for download on the EAP page. If you installed the previous 2.6 EAP build, you can also update from within the IDE using the “Check for updates” action.
