Faster Debugger


Python is a widely used high-level programming language for general-purpose programming.

Python 3.6 debugging is now up to 40x faster! We have been able to use some new features in Python 3.6 to radically improve the performance of the PyCharm debugger. Is your project not on 3.6 yet? Python 3.5 (and older) debugging got up to two times faster as well.

New and Improved Test Runners

PyCharm 2017 test resultsPyCharm 2017 test results


PyCharm is an integrated development environment for the Python programming language.

PyCharm has now adopted the TeamCity API for test runners. This means that test configurations will be consistent between the IDE and CI builds. This allows us to use the native test runners, and will make integration of new test runners in the future easier.

Support for the six Library

If you’d like to upgrade to Python 3, but still need to support Python 2 for a while, you can use the six library. The six library enables you to write a single codebase that can run on both Python 2 and Python 3 interpreters. PyCharm now has accurate code completion and code insight for six.

Web Development

Django, Flask & Pyramid PRO ONLY

PyCharm has been updated to support all current versions: Django 1.10, Flask 0.12, and Pyramid 1.8.2.


Vue.js at workVue.js at work


Vue is a progressive framework for building user interfaces.

Vue.js is a rapidly growing new JavaScript framework. Get the Vue.js plugin from the JetBrains repository (Settings | Plugin | Install JetBrains Plugin) to try it out in PyCharm 2017.1! The new version of PyCharm adds Vue autocomplete and code assistance, which also works in multiple languages within .vue files.

JavaScript Unit Test Status Gutter Icons PRO ONLY

Unit tests are a great tool to check against regressions, but sometimes you want to change something which breaks your tests. Now you can see right in the editor which tests need an update, and if you’re using Mocha or Jest you can debug them right from there.

Support for Jest PRO ONLY

Jest in actionJest in action


Jest is used by Facebook to test all JavaScript code including React applications.

If you’re using React, you should try Jest – Facebook’s JavaScript unit testing framework. In PyCharm 2017.1 we support running and debugging Jest tests. And of course if you spot a failing test, you can just double-click it to go to the test’s source.

Database Tools

Editor Colors PRO ONLY

Bad things happen when you think you’re working on staging, but you accidentally opened an SQL prompt on your production server instead. To prevent this, now you can set your editors to different backgrounds.

Version Control

Improved Log Viewer

Our log viewer has a couple of small useful improvements: you can now search commits using regex, and toggle case sensitivity.

File History

We’ve improved our file history panel. For example, you can now easily toggle between seeing only the commits on the branch you’re currently on, or the commits on all branches.

Remote Development

SSH Multi-Factor Authentication PRO ONLY

If you’re security-conscious, you may have hardened your server’s SSH access with 2-factor authentication. PyCharm now supports connecting to SSH servers that are protected with Google Authenticator.

Native Docker for Mac PRO ONLY

PyCharm 2017.1 supports Docker for Mac using native unix sockets. No more need to use SOCAT to connect your IDE to Docker.

Data Science

Data View for Pandas DataFrames and Numpy Arrays

When doing data science, seeing the data you’re working on makes the work a lot easier. That’s why we’ve taken our DataFrame and Numpy Array viewer, and evolved them into a dedicated Data View pane. Complete with tabs to easily watch multiple datasets.

Remote Jupyter Notebooks PRO ONLY

Jupyter Notebooks are a great way to do research. If you do research in a team, you’ll want to share your notebooks with your team members. That’s why PyCharm 2017.1 supports connecting to Jupyter Notebooks on a shared server.

Platform Improvements

Zero-Latency Typing

Typing latencies of different IDEsTyping latencies of different IDEs

Lower latency typing means for a better typing experience. Pavel Fatin, one of our developers, worked hard to get the latency down as low as it can go.

Semantic Highlighting

When enabled, semantic highlighting will make it easy to see where a variable is used at a glance.
