The AWS Toolkit for PyCharm is a new, open source plug-in that makes it easier to create, step-through debug, and deploy Python applications on AWS. Before today, developers who preferred PyCharm had to take multiple steps to configure their IDEs for developing and debugging applications. Now, you can get started faster and be more productive when developing on AWS.

The AWS Toolkit for PyCharm provides an integrated experience for developing serverless applications in Python. The toolkit helps you get started fast with built-in project templates that leverage the AWS Serverless Application Model (AWS SAM) to define and configure resources. The toolkit also includes an integrated experience for step-through debugging of serverless applications with the AWS SAM CLI and makes it easy to deploy your applications from 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 features when they become generally available.

We welcome feedback and pull requests for any of the toolkits on GitHub. The source code for The AWS Toolkits for PyCharm and IntelliJ is here and for Visual Studio Code is here.

The AWS Toolkit for PyCharm is available for download from the JetBrains Plug-in Repository.
