Early Access Program

PyCharm 2019.1 EAP 6

A variable viewer for our native Jupyter Notebook support, an interpreter indicator in the status bar, and more. Try the PyCharm 2019.1 EAP now, you can download the latest version on our website.

New in This Version

Variable Viewer for Jupyter Notebooks

Notebooks Variable

Last week we’ve introduced our new Jupyter Notebooks support, that allows you to directly edit and run .ipynb files from PyCharm. This week, we’re adding some more functionality.

Have you ever lost track of the state of your Jupyter Notebook as you’re working with it? We’ve now added a variables viewer to our new Jupyter Notebook support, so you can easily see what’s going on.

Interpreter Indicator

Interpreter Chooser

Are you in the process of migrating to a new version of a framework, or even a new version of Python? PyCharm now makes it even easier to switch between interpreters. Just choose it right from the status bar. If you prefer to keep your hands on your keyboard, use Ctrl+Shift+A to find action, and look for ‘Switch Python interpreter’.

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.

With PyCharm 2019.1 we’re moving to a new runtime environment: this EAP build already bundles the brand new JetBrains Runtime Environment (a customized version of JRE 11). Unfortunately, since this build uses the brand-new platform, the patch-update from previous versions is not available this time. Please use the full installation method instead.

If you tried 2019.1 EAP 3 or an earlier EAP of 2019.1: you may get an error about “MaxJavaStackTraceDepth=-1” when you start the IDE. If you get it, please remove that line from the custom JVM options. This is an incompatibility between the old JRE and the new one, and we apologize for any inconvenience.

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.

    Awesome. Vagrant integration will be very much useful. 🙂

    (When) will this cool new Vagrant integration feature be added to IntelliJ IDEA, RubyMine etc?

      Vagrant support makes sense only in conjunction with remote interpreter support (running an interpeter on a remote machine over SSH). Remote interpreters are supported in PyCharm and RubyMine 5, and the Vagrant integration is available for both of them. Remote interpreter support is not really applicable to the Java world (application servers usually solve the same problem in a better way), so we have no plans to support Vagrant in IntelliJ IDEA.

        So, what’s the best way of working with Java on a VM (vagrant), using IntelliJ, then?

        I use IDEA as my primary IDE and do all my python work via the Python plugin, is there no option to install the Vagrant plugin otherwise?

    Does it mean it won’t be installed in IntelliJ IDEA, even as part of ruby/python plugins?
    I write in many languages and opted for IDEA Ultimate version, I use vagrant and would like to see this supported for my php/ruby/node projects.

      Right now Vagrant is not available in IntelliJ IDEA Ultimate at all. It’s likely that in the future it will be available as a separately downloadable plugin that will be able to work together with the Ruby/Python plugins.

    I can’t get plotting or ipywidgets to show up at all. I can only get simple output and markdown to work on my Mac.

    Is there any special configuration required to get plotting to work? Are ipywidgets supported?

      Hi, sorry for the delay, is this still a problem? Could you try with the 2019.1.1 release we did this week?

    I am using pycharm 2019 and python 3.6, I tried to make a thread on a function in the class but it doesn’t work. I can only use threading directly on the function out of the class but I cannot make a function in the class as a thread, would you please help me to figure it out. Thanks.
