About PyCharm

PyCharm is an on-premise Python integrated development environment (IDE) designed to help professional developers write code, create a virtual environment, and maintain quality control using PEP8 checks, refactoring, and testing assistance. Its code editor supports Python, JavaScript, CoffeeScript, TypeScript, Cascading Style Sheets (CSS), and other languages.

PyCharm's search functionality lets programmers navigate to specific classes, files, symbols, IDE actions, or tools according to individual requirements. Its debugger allows developers to create and run Python tests using a graphical user interface (GUI) and coding assistance. The platform helps professionals browse data, alter schemas, run queries and preview code edits in real-time. Managers can also customize the platform's user interface using color schemes and layouts.

Using PyCharm, developers can access several databases such as Access Oracle, SQL Server, PostgreSQL, MySQL, and more from within a unified IDE. The system also supports multiple web development frameworks including Django, Flask, Google App Engine, Pyramid, and web2py.

My overall experience has been great thus far. I believe I will continue to use it in my professional career. I would absolutely recommend this product for any software engineer, machine learning engineer or even a data scientist who wants to do some scripting work.

Pros

I have been using this IDE for a short time now. I must say it extremely amazing. I love how convenient and easy it is to use. The layout is fantastic. Having everything present in a single place like that definitely makes my life much easier as an engineer .The code editing tools are amazing, the code improvement recommendation system that they have is definitely a plus to have, sometimes the IDE recommends me to do certain actions I would have never have thought of on my own. Also it helps finish my code blocks automatically which is great. I also like how I could split the screen multiple parts fairly easily for code review. I could go on and on. I would definitely recommend Pycharm or any JetBrains product for that matter. They work incredibly hard and it shows in their work. In short Pycharm is awesome and I recommend you start using it.

Cons

I don't have any major critiques of the IDE but I would say perhaps having a co-pilot would be an incredible improvement to make it an even better IDE. Other than that I have no issues with it.

PyCharm is utilized by me for coding in python, fundamentally I have involved it for the django system, I have created django site utilizing this PyCharm IDE, sorting out the code in PyCharm without difficulty is exceptionally simple. With PyCharm, the envelope game plan is exceptionally simple. It is likewise extremely simple to utilize terminal to run code.
It is the most ideal for web improvement utilizing django, the envelopes are truly organized subsequent to making a django project. We can without much of a stretch make project from ui or from console, both are reasonable. it is exceptionally simple to make project and oversee it since projects are very much organized. truly love every one of the elements of PyCharm.

Pros

IDE
troubleshooting
data set devices
web advancement
python web structure
live alter
intelligent python console

Cons

the UI of PyCharm should be improved
console should be more responsive
environment setup sometimes hang
how about something like ai which can predict your code

I don't like it very much. Interacting with PyCharm (in other ways than just writing code) is frequently slow and confusing. The last couple of times I opened it, I immediately closed it and opened VSCode instead. I keep it installed anyway, as it did help me quite a bit back when I had to build a compiler from the ground up. If you really, REALLY need an IDE, then I guess you could do worse than PyCharm.

Pros

Easy package searching and installation once the initial setup is done. It has plenty of debugging features, and it's handy to keep track of a large project.

Cons

It's not exactly lightweight. Using it to install Python on my Windows machine turned out to be quite a hassle. I've been using it for years, and while it's decent for medium to large projects, there is really no reason to use it if all you need is a short script.

It was a great experience for me to use Pycharm so far. I have been using this IDE for my day-to-day tasks as a data science professional. The only issue I had with it is the high RAM usage which slows down my work often.

Pros

I found its user-friendly UI self-explanatory, making it easier to navigate. It gives the flexibility to install packages, build ML models and deploy.

Cons

Too much resource hungry and consumes up a lot of RAM during use.

I quite like the overall experience, I think is a very mature tool and I have suggested it to all my colleagues working with Python Django.

Pros

What I do really like about PyCharm is the search features. I think they are really useful and work great!

Cons

Would be nice when working on a Django project have directly the HTML markdown syntax highlighting for Django templating language. Also I would really love to have the git annotate function as in VS code (instead of having a sidebar having a comment like line whit the git author on the highlighted line). Sometimes I had trouble with the Python interpreter going crazy and had to reset it. Also the markdown syntax highlighting for .MD files is superheavy and the computer slows down
