PyCharm 2018.2 Out Now

PyCharm 2018.2 is now available: Pipenv environments, pytest support improvements, new and improved quick documentation, and much more


New in PyCharm

  • PyCharm now fully supports pipenv: easily create projects with pipenv, create a pipfile, and have PyCharm update it for you when you install packages. If you’re checking out a project from GitHub with a pipfile, a pipenv will be created automatically, and you can install all dependencies with one click.
  • Support for pytest has been improved in PyCharm 2018.2: code completion and inspections are now support for pytest fixtures. If you’d like to use BDD, pytest-bdd is now supported as well. Please note that BDD support is available only in PyCharm Professional Edition.
  • Quick documentation has been redesigned to be easier to use and also just to look better. Don’t have docs yet? The reStructuredText editor now comes with a preview window, making editing rst files a lot easier.

Further code insight, version control, and other improvements have been made, read the What’s New page to learn more. Already convinced? Then download PyCharm now

    Something appears to be broken with the screen painting in this version. It looks like only parts of the visual elements of the IDE that have changed get repainted. For example, when I scroll down in a file, the contents of the text buffer doesn’t change until I select text in the buffer or I move the cursor around. I am running the IDE in Ubuntu 18.04 in the latest stable release.

    Thank you so much for Pytest code completion! I was thinking sometimes “it would be nice to have those fixtures to be code-completed”, and voila! One day I was just writing tests and Pycharm highlighted my fixtures!! Like an unexpected gift :)
