[QUOTE=JasonB;28715]Just wondering what this plugin does exactly? – is this providing a way to debug in Maya from PyCharm CE the way it works in the full edition? or something else? The Github didn’t have a description – but I am interested in anything that might make PyCharm more useful.
EDIT: So finally pieced together the setup of the plugin. Its pretty slick – will likely save a lot of time… Thanks![/QUOTE]
More or less a faster way to execute code your writing in PyCharm, in Maya as if it was running in the script editor. Also it reads the output of the script editor into the IDE.
For testing scripts i find its most useful if you do something like.
if __name__ == "__main__":
at the end of your script.
just lets you run the script as is, and have it all work.
Once i have some time i want to learn more about the Intellij/PyCharm API and implement it as a run-configuration, also am hoping to intergrate the remote debugger in the pro version into it.
