PyCharm for grognards

Initial setup:

  • charm opening script: ~/.local/bin/charm (manually expand ~ first)

Important shortcuts:


  • Disable unused plugins, for simplicity.
  • Editor → General → Other: Always write EOL, and strip spaces
  • For Python projects: set virtualenv under "Project Interpreter"

To configure Vim or such as external editor, see here. PyCharm's line and column can be passed like -c "call cursor($LineNumber$, $ColumnNumber$)" (must be double-quotes; single-quotes don't work)


  • Program: gvim
  • Parameters: -c "call cursor($LineNumber$, $ColumnNumber$)" $FilePathRelativeToSourcepath$
  • Working directory: $SourcepathEntry$
