How common is PyCharm with developers

Introduction of the AWS Toolkit for PyCharm

The AWS Toolkit for PyCharm is a new, open source plug-in that makes it easy to build, debug, and deploy Python applications on AWS. To date, developers who preferred PyCharm had to go through several steps to configure their IDEs for application development and debugging. Now you can get started developing on AWS faster and be more productive.

The AWS Toolkit for PyCharm provides an integrated experience for developing serverless applications in Python. The toolkit helps you to work quickly with integrated project templates that use the AWS Serverless Application Model (AWS SAM) to define and configure resources. The toolkit also includes a built-in experience for step-by-step debugging of serverless applications using the AWS SAM CLI and making it easy to deploy your applications through the IDE. Check out our blog post to learn more about developing serverless applications in PyCharm.

The AWS Toolkits for Visual Studio Code (Developer Preview) and IntelliJ (Developer Preview) are still in active development and will include similar functionality as they become generally available.

We welcome feedback and pull requests on all toolkits on GitHub. The source code for AWS Toolkits for PyCharm and IntelliJ can be found here and for Visual Studio Code here.

The AWS Toolkit for PyCharm can be downloaded from the JetBrains plug-in repository.
