How to run terminal using "Run" highlighting?

Answered

Whenever I run any manage.py task in the terminal (Windows cmd terminal) no highlighting is used. But when I set up a configuration to run any manage.py task, this process is run in the "Run" terminal tab, the problem is that this terminal is not interactive unless the process prompts you.

How can I have the same nice highlighting in the normal terminal other than having to set up a new configuration?

Hi! PyCharm has special tool window to run manage.py console: Tools | Run manage.py Task. It has highlighting and completion, has it helped?

That option currently doesn't even show up for me for some reason.

In any case, I am aware of its existence but I have never been able to use it because I use a custom manage.py file and PyCharm doesn't allow you to run a file other than manage.py if I recall correctly.

I'd appreciate if support could look at this please :)

There's no specific pre-build highlighting for terminal in PyCharm, it relies on the shell used (Settings | Tools | Terminal).

That option currently doesn't even show up for me for some reason.

Do you use PyCharm Professional? Is Django support enabled and configured in Settings | Languages & Frameworks | Django? If you have a different manage.py file name you can specify it there also.

Thank you, that seems to work. How can I set up interpreter options though? I would like to launch python -W ignore::DeprecationWarning custom_manage.py.
