User experience

Refreshed product icons

The latest EAP build for PyCharm 2024.1 introduces refreshed product icons, aligning with updates across all JetBrains IDEs and enhancing visual appeal and consistency across the ecosystem.

Endpoints tool window [PyCharm Professional]

Support for FastAPI/Flask bigger applications (multiple files)

Now, when you are working on your Flask or FastAPI project in PyCharm, the endpoints in the Endpoints tool window are grouped by apps. Also, PyCharm is now able to detect the endpoints declared in libraries, as well as several endpoints per path and endpoints for different HTTP-methods.

WireMock server support

In PyCharm 2024.1 EAP 7, we’re introducing WireMock support via a plugin that you can get from JetBrains Marketplace or install from inside the IDE. This integration includes schema completion for JSON configurations, the ability to generate WireMock stub files from the Endpoints tool window, and a built-in server run configuration that allows users to spin up the server directly from the editor. This addition enables you to swiftly create test data servers or stubs, simplifying the development of web UIs and microservices.

Version control systems

Option to exclude folders and files from comparison

We’ve enhanced the diff viewer with an option to specify specific folders and files to be ignored during the comparison process so that you can focus solely on relevant changes. Just right-click on any file or folder you don’t want to appear in the comparison results and select Exclude from results from the context menu. 

Improved search in the Branches popup

We’ve enhanced the search functionality available in the Branches popup. With this update, you can now filter search results by actions and repositories for quicker and more precise navigation within your version control system. 

Support for --update-refs for interactive rebase

The Rebase dialog now features the --update-refs option, meaning that once it is selected, PyCharm ensures that the Git repository’s history accurately reflects the modifications made during the rebase operation. 

Quick fixes for React props and state creation

We’ve introduced several new quick fixes for React. These quick fixes allow you to add props and state on the fly. The Create prop in <CurrentComponent> quick fix allows you to add a prop to the current component from the unresolved symbol. PyCharm will attempt to detect the target props declaration type or interface and add the prop with a correctly inferred type:

The second quick fix has similar mechanics but allows adding props to a component defined in your project directly from the JSX: 

These quick fixes are also compatible with class-based React components.

Finally, a very similar mechanism is available for creating state in functional React components: 

These are the most notable updates brought by this week’s EAP build. For a comprehensive overview of all the implemented changes, please refer to the release notes. 

We highly value your feedback on the new features since your insights play an essential role in molding the final version of the release. Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below or via X (formerly Twitter). Should you encounter any bugs, please submit a report via our issue tracker
