Webinar: “Live Development of a PyCharm Plugin” with Joachim Ansorg

Update: Joachim has made a repo available with the contents he will show in the webinar.

PyCharm comes with a lot of functionality, yet perhaps something you’d like is missing. Luckily it’s made to be enhanced by plugins to be suitable for a much wider range of users. This webinar with noted IntelliJ/PyCharm plugin consultant Joachim Ansorg will show you how such a plugin is built for PyCharm.

  • Aimed at intermediate/advanced PyCharm users


Speaking to You

Joachim is a self-employed software developer, specializing in IntelliJ plugin development.

Born in 1982, he studied CS at a small university in Germany. After that he worked for a year as a software developer on the beautiful island of Crete in Greece. He failed to learn Greek there but is able to read and write the simpler alternatives like Java, Kotlin, and Go.

When he moved back to Germany he joined a smaller software company for about 8 years as a Java developer. He became self-employed in early 2017 to create plugins for IntelliJ and is enjoying this a lot.

Joachim is happily married to his wife Lisa and is living in southern Germany, about 15 minutes away from Basel/Switzerland.

    Wow, you chaps iterate quickly. These looks like great additions to an already impressive Python/Django IDE

    Django template debugging is wonderful. It certainly will reduce my head aches in the future. External docs is really nice as well. Good stuff.

    So when is the next release? What’s in it? 😛

    The 1.5.1 update fixes a critical problem with adding SDKs and addresses a couple of other smaller problems.

    When will the next version come out, and will there be any Web2Py support? I am itching to use PyCharm, but I need Web2Py support.

      PyCharm 2.0 will be released in the end of this year. There will be no web2py support.

        I noticed web2py support is still listed on the feature pool for 2.0.

        Is that no longer the case? Will web2py support be added eventually? What is the future of TurboGears and Pyramid integration?

          The feature pool is not a roadmap or a plan; it’s the list of potential features from which the actual plan was chosen.

          Right now it doesn’t look like we’ll be able to support either Pyramid or TurboGears in PyCharm 2.0.

          At the moment we don’t have anything to announce regarding versions of PyCharm after 2.0.
