I'm currently working on a fairly large-scale Python project using JetBrains' PyCharm as my primary IDE. While I appreciate the wide array of features and the seamless integration with various Python tools that PyCharm offers, I've been facing some performance issues, especially as my project grows in size and complexity.
I am experiencing noticeable lag during code editing, and the IDE takes a significant amount of time to index files, which hampers my productivity. I understand that such issues can be common in large projects, but I am looking for ways to optimize PyCharm's performance to handle this better.
Does anyone have tips or best practices for optimizing PyCharm for large-scale Python projects? Specifically, I'm interested in:
- Adjusting settings or configurations to reduce lag and improve responsiveness.
- Efficient project structure or practices within PyCharm to enhance performance.
- Any plugins or external tools that integrate well with PyCharm to aid in handling larger projects.
Any advice or shared experiences with managing large projects in PyCharm would be greatly appreciated!
Thank you in advance!
