A few interesting features of Pycharm that are otherwise not commonly known or uses
Live templates make it easy to add commonly used or otherwise annoying boiler plate code. I will not cover the existing live templates, you can have a look for yourself (File -> Settings [ctrl + alt + s] -> Editor -> Live Templates)
I do have a few custom ones to share that may be of interest
# Sanic route @app.get('/$ROUTE$') async def $ROUTE$(_: Request) -> HTTPResponse: return response.json(['a', 'b']) # Logger import logging logger = logging.getLogger(__name__) # Data class @dataclass class $NAME$: test: str # Data class json @dataclass_json(letter_case=LetterCase.CAMEL) @dataclass class $NAME$: test: str
Post fix autocompletion
Post fix autocompletion can make writting certain Python constructs faster. For example if you want the following
if user.authorized: current_user = user
Instead of typing
if user.authorized , you could type user.authorized.if and hit tab resulting in the if statement block and cursor on the next line.
The other supported postfix template are:
a.ifn if a is None: a.ifnn if a is not None: a.len len(a) abs(1).main if __name__ == '__main__': abs(1) a.not not a a.print print(a) a.return return a a.while while a:
To my dissapointment Pycharm currently does not support adding new post fix template for Python but for SQL.
