There are really two ways to install PyCharm. You can install it as a traditional download, or you can install it using JetBrains Toolbox. In this video we use Toolbox to download and install PyCharm professional. We also use Toolbox to launch PyCharm for the first. Time.
- [Instructor] Now I need to install PyCharm itself. There are actually two different ways you could do this. You could do the very straight forward way and just download and install PyCharm. So from the JetBrains website, you can just go to IDE and then find PyCharm. And you just select the download now button. And then you can pick whether you want the Professional or Community addition. I'm going to be using the Professional addition, but I'm actually going to install this a different way. I'm going to use the JetBrains toolbox.
So for this, I need to go up to All Tools. And find the Toolbox App. And I'll download it. And I'll go ahead and install it. The toolbox app allows me to manage all of the JetBrains tools installations that I have. It also gives me a handy little project manager. So if you use several of JetBrains tools as I do on a daily basis, it helps to have this nice little management function that allows you to make sure that you always have the latest version installed.
Once you sign in to JetBrains Toolbox, you can download and install whichever version of PyCharm you want to use by scrolling down and finding the addition that you want. I'm just going to go ahead and install PyCharm Professional. I'll select Install. And it'll go ahead and download and install that for me automatically. And from here, the toolbox will manage my installation. So if I want to install a different edition, I can do all of this through a handy interface.
