Early Access Program

PyCharm 2019.1 EAP 2

Our Early Access Program (EAP) continues, and we have some great features in this second version:

New in PyCharm

Syntax Highlighting in Vagrantfiles

Vagrant Highlighting

If you’re developing an application that will be deployed in a virtual machine, Vagrant is a great tool to automate the creation and deletion of your VM while you’re developing. Even though PyCharm has long had support for running Python code in a Vagrant box using the Vagrant interpreter, we haven’t had any support for Vagrantfiles until now.

Haven’t tried Vagrant before? Read our blog post on developing with Vagrant and Ansible, to prepare for deploying an application on Amazon EC2.

Sudo Support for SSH Interpreters

SSH Root

Writing some administration automation scripts? Or experimenting with GPIO on your Raspberry Pi? You’ll need root privileges to execute your scripts. PyCharm now let’s you run scripts with elevated privileges over SSH, letting you debug these scripts as easily as a any other script.

Further Improvements


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 2019.1 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 2019.1 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.

    I also noticed that paste of even several lines of code sometimes takes up to 3 seconds on my very powerfull machine running Linux 64-bit.

    Hmmm…I had something weird happen in Windows for 2.0 where I lost “some” keyboard input e.g. Tab, copy, paste functionality. Perhaps I too should upgrade to 2.0.1?

      Most likely this is a different problem. The fix included in 2.0.1 is really Mac only.

    nice job on the patch updates, given PyCharm’s fast paced development, this is way nicer to keep up with new releases… good to see this come round

    I have PyCharm 2020.1 but I dont get syntax higlighting for my Vagrantfile.
    It’s just opened as text file, text all black, no syntax.

    What do i need to do?

      Hi Henning, thank you for your message and for pointing out the issue.
      Vagrantfile highlighting has been broken since a few releases ago and should be restored in 2020.2.
