New in PyCharm

Custom Themes

UI Themes

We’ve now added official support for theme plugins, so be sure to check out the themes available in the Marketplace to see if there’s one you like. In addition to the popular third party Material Theme UI plugin, our own UI team has now published several plugins. For example, the Cyan Light theme:


If you don’t like any of the available UI themes, you can also make your own. Read more about creating UI themes on the IntelliJ blog.

Redesigned Database Connection Flow

DB Flow

PyCharm Professional Edition bundles the advanced database tools from JetBrains DataGrip, a tool that can manage databases from all major vendors. DataGrip has redesigned the flow for connecting to a database, and this is now also available in PyCharm.

If you’re working on a database-connected application, be sure to configure your database settings in PyCharm. With the database connected, you get schema-aware SQL completion in Python code, and you can quickly run a query embedded in Python code straight from the editor.


Further Improvements


Download the RC from our website. Alternatively, you can use the JetBrains Toolbox App to stay up to date.

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

The release candidate (RC) is not an early access program (EAP) build, and does not bundle an EAP license. If you get PyCharm Professional Edition RC, you will either need a currently active PyCharm subscription, or you will receive a 30-day free trial.

    I downloaded the March 19 build for Ubuntu, started a new ‘scientific’ project and made a new jupyter notebook.

    I get the notification that jupyter is not installed as a yellow backgrounded message above of the code editor and as a popup every time I run a cell.

    There is a link ‘Install Jupyter package’ that does not result in an event when clicked.

    ‘Settings-Plugins’ suggest that I have a bundled Jupyter Plugin installed.

    print(‘hello world’) returns ‘no output’

    The new Jupyter Notebooks support is awseome!
    Is there a way to change font size in the jupyter preview pane?

  3. Matt says:

    Are there plans to add Run all cells and clear output to the Jupyter support? I love where the support is going but those are two pretty important features. Thanks!
