New in PyCharm 2018.1 EAP 3

Gutter Icons for Unit Tests

You may have already seen them for JavaScript, but they’re available for Python unit tests now as well! Just click the green play icon next to your unit test (or test suite) and you can run, debug, and profile them right from there:

EAP 3 - Test Gutter Icons

Further Improvements

  • The `JumpHost` directive in SSH config files is now supported
  • We’ve fixed several issues with code inspections for Cython.
  • Run icons for npm tasks in the gutter (open your package.json to see them)
  • Smart copy and paste from HTML to JSX, makes migrating some HTML into a React component easy work.

You can read about further improvements in the release notes.


Download this EAP from our website. Alternatively, you can use the JetBrains Toolbox App to stay up to date throughout the entire EAP.

If you’re on Ubuntu 16.04 or later, you can use snap to get PyCharm EAP, and stay up to date. You can find the installation instructions on our website.

PyCharm 2018.1 is in development during the EAP phase, therefore not all new features are already available. More features will be added in the coming weeks. As PyCharm 2018.1 is pre-release software, it is not as stable as the release versions. Furthermore, we may decide to change and/or drop certain features as the EAP progresses.

All EAP versions will ship with a built-in EAP license, which means that these versions are free to use for 30 days after the day that they are built. As EAPs are released weekly, you’ll be able to use PyCharm Professional Edition EAP for free for the duration of the EAP program, as long as you upgrade at least once every 30 days.
