Does PyCharm support external docs?

for example I've just installed external library: lxml (from http://pypi.python.org/pypi/lxml/2.2.8)

PyCharm highlights any imports from lxml as "unresolved reference"

I guess PyCharm doesn't read symbols from .dll (.pyd) or .so files

but lxml sources contains Html/Api documentation (available also at their site: http://codespeak.net/lxml/api/index.html)

can PyCharm read these docs?

Hello Wi,

Actually PyCharm does read symbols from binary libraries. If you have just

installed a library, you'll probably need to go to Settings | Python Interpreters

and press "Reload", otherwise the new library should be picked up on next

restart.

PyCharm doesn't currently support external documentation, and the support

which is planned for future versions will only include using external documentation

as documentation, not as a source of information for resolve and code completion.

I use python plugin with Idea X EAP

there is no such button:  Settings | Python Interpreters and press "Reload"

after restart lxml imports are not understood :-(

oh

I downloaded PyCharm

and guess what?

PyCharm really tries to parse lxml library!

in 2 minutes it showed me Out of Memory and asked to enter more than default 512

After that PyCharm exited

Why it didn't restart?

I started PyCharm again

it ate 1.1 gb of RAM and 100% of cpu

after 10 minutes of cpu time it asked for more memory

I thought it's too much and switched back to Idea :-)

at least we now know that Idea+plugin != PyCharm

Hooray!

with PyCharm 1.0 RC2 everything is perfect!

of course PyCharm contains UI bugs from IdeaX

such as 'wrong column width in Changes/Repository view'

but that's ok
