I've been doing Java development for the last few years and have absolutely fallen in love with IDEA. I hate coding in any other IDE now.
However, I'm starting work on a new python project... django, to be exact. One of the first things I'm trying to accomplish in IDEA is to figure out how to add a new Python SDK that points to a virtual python environment that I've set up using "virtualenv". It seems like no matter which folder in my virtualenv heirarchy I attempt to select, IDEA tells me that it's not a valid Python SDK folder.
As a side effect, IDEA doesn't seem to recognize any of the python modules I've installed in my virtualenv. I've tried to work around this by adding the module folders as dependencies in the "Module Settings" dialog, but that's not working either.
Out of curiosity I downloaded and fired up Netbeans to see how it handled the same tasks, and am sad to say that it was really easy to get it set up with my virtualenv and starting running things right away... plus it has an integrated debugger...
I'd much rather use IDEA... does anyone know if there is a way to work around this sort of thing?
