Python plugin for IntelliJ IDEA 12 is now available
Just a quick heads up: we've just released a version of the Python plugin for the latest Early Access Preview build of IntelliJ IDEA 12 (build 123.4). The plugin includes the entire functionality of the current PyCharm 2.7 EAP, including several features which were previously only available in PyCharm (creating virtualenvs, using remote interpreters, creating UML diagrams for Python code etc.). As usual, the plugin can be installed from the plugin manager (Settings | Plugins). Note that the support for reStructuredText and .po files is now available as two separate plugins (called "ReStruc
Plugin highlight: TabFolder adds folder to editor tabs
Has it occurred to you that you open several base.html templates at once and the tabs showing only file name do not really help to say which is which? Wouldn't it be nicer to see a folder name near the base.html? Yes, and PyCharm 2.0 will do exactly this. But for now, there's a plugin for that!

Hi everyone! We always enjoy getting into a new community to understand how the practices inside it differ from other communities, e.g. Java from Ruby, Ruby from Python, etc. One of the "de facto" standards of the Python community is Mercurial as the favorite version control system. And with PyCharm, we've been shipping a built-it Mercurial GUI client since the 1.0 release. But then, there are services like Bitbucket that host the code. And since an IDE is all about "integrated environment", why not integrate with them? Sure, we can do everything some day, but what we love above all i
PyCharm your Vim
Two observations after PyCon US: 1. Quite a surprise for us to find that so many Python developers use Vi/Vim for coding. 2. A big surprise for all Vim users to find that PyCharm provides an outstanding Vim emulation! Of course we believe that PyCharm is the best but we highly respect people’s favors with regard to the tools they love. From the first versions PyCharm has been offering a number of keyboard layouts out of the box: for NetBeans, Visual Studio, TextMate users, etc. And of course Vim is not an exception! PyCharm as well as other IntelliJ platform based IDEs has an IdeaVim plugin.
