What's new in PyCharm Professional

Version 2020.3.4:
  • This release is dedicated to fixing bugs and enhancing performance. We are also working on implementing the concept of trusted projects, which is designed to mitigate the risks associated with opening projects from unknown and untrusted sources.
  • You can upgrade to v2020.3.4 with the Toolbox App, or right from the IDE, or by using snap if you are an Ubuntu user. It is also available for download from our website.
  • Trusted Projects:
  • The simple act of opening a project in the IDE can lead to the automatic execution of code from the project’s virtual environment, specifically its activation script. This can pose a significant risk if a malicious actor creates the project. Unfortunately, the risk is not merely hypothetical. There have been recent attempts to attack security researchers by sending them Visual Studio projects containing malicious code.
  • We’ve introduced the concept of Trusted Projects to mitigate these risks. When you open an imported or cloned project that contains a virtual environment, PyCharm doesn’t execute the auto-configuration of the virtual environment. Instead, it first checks whether the project is from a trusted location. If the project folder is not listed as a trusted location, PyCharm won’t proceed with the auto-configuration of its interpreter. Instead, PyCharm will let you decide whether to use the project’s interpreter or configure another Python interpreter instead.
  • PyCharm makes it possible to identify trusted locations in Preferences/Settings | Build, Execution, Deployment | Trusted Locations. Projects in directories specified as "Trusted Locations" are always considered trusted. To ensure that the projects are treated as untrusted only in unusual circumstances, we recommend adding the directory where you usually create projects to your trusted locations.
  • Other notable improvements:
  • Apple ARM chip (Apple Silicon): the OS X Keychain is now accessible from your IDE.
  • Code insight: inspections work as expected for decorators defined as classes.
  • Pytest: failed tests for run configurations with additional arguments can now be rerun without errors.
  • Markdown: all characters are now rendered correctly in the preview tab.
  • Docker: we’ve fixed the issue causing log spamming when disconnecting from Docker.
  • Web development: the Vue.js plugin no longer breaks HTML templating.

Superb. I have almost 3 decades of development experience, but I was new to Python 12 months ago when I was asked to build a Django based business application (wholly API, almost no UI other than a slightly customised django Admin area). The client knew that I did not have Python experience but expected me to get up to speed ASAP. So I needed some help from my IDE. I decided to buy PyCharm Pro after trialling it and having tried out a few of the alternatives (Wing, Komodo, VS Code etc). Best money I've spent on software in years - it held my hand as I learnt the language and the Django framework, and when I had become proficient, I started to explore and discover the abundance of built in tools. My favourite discovery was solid built in support for Azure SQL Server databases. And recently I discovered its support for running Django tests within the IDE - saves me switching to the terminal all the time. Nice. A few rough edges that come with it being cross-platform, but that does mean that I can run it on Linux and Windows too should I need to, which is a bonus. And the rough edges are really very, very minor. If you can't get past a few non-native widgets and conventions, you might want to look elsewhere, although good luck finding a decent native macOS Python IDE that has anything like the depth as this tool. When they finally sort out the Laravel duplicate class name autocomplete problems, I'll almost certainly also get their PHPStorm Pro product. (Sticking to Netbeans for that for now though)

Command-W doesn't close a window or tab. Command-O doesn't open a file. When I try to open a file using "File>Open....", the dialog box opens to my home directory, not the one my files are in.

How much do the developers of this product know about the Mac interface conventions?

It advertises itself as "ALL PYTHON TOOLS IN ONE PLACE" and maybe that is even true - but it is nowhere near to what it could be. Where is the visual interface builder? Where is the compiler? And yes, you CAN compile python apps.

Basically it is a scripting environment. It might be the best available at the moment, but Python is hampered by the lack of a REAL integrated development environment, and deserves so much more.

Nice IDE for python development. Pro version has additional features for web development such as support for debugging Flask and Django apps and templates, and database and profiling support. Since it's java based some UI elements like open file dialogs don't behave the way they do in standard Mac apps, but the app overall works well.

This is the best Python IDE I've used. I have been using it since shortly after its 1.0 release. Its django integration is excellent, as is its code completion, source control tools (subversion, git, mercurial and more). It's been well worth the money for me, having saved me lots of time. The downside is that it is Java based, running in a Java VM. It is plenty fast, and quite configurable. The editor is very good, but has at least one missing feature: drag and drop. Yes, you can select text, and move it someplace else with drag and drop. You cannot select text and COPY it someplace else by holding down the option key. That's standard Macintosh procedure, and not Java.I have also seen some quirks with clipboard utilities (PTH Pasteboard, CopyPastePro). You basically can't use them. The support team at Jetbrains are excellent. Pycharm is quite stable. I'm still finding features that surprise and delight. Worth the money, but is not perfect.
