Python plugin and conda environment


I am using Python plugin on IntelliJ 14 Ultimate with conda as my virtual env manager.

I have chosen the Python SDK under Project Structure to point to the correct env directory that I am using and I can run the Python program from the Terminal window inside IntelliJ within that particular virtual environment. However the editor is showing a lot of red squilly denoting compile errors especially for all the imported libraries that I have fetched into the environment through conda install or pip install.

Is there other settings that I need to do to be able to use the IDE appropriately?

I am still having difficulties with this. I wonder if there is a more appropriate support forum to post this question.

IDE should resolve all the libraries from the Python SDK automatically.

Please try File | Invalidate Caches | Invalidate and Restart, try to remove and add SDK again.

If it doesn't help, please file a bug at and attach idea.log ( It may contain error related to your SDK indexing. Provide a small sample to illustrate the problem, a screenshot showing what libraries are not resolved and where these libraries reside on your system.
