Remote Hosts Access

Early Access Preview of PyCharm 1.1 is supposed to include Remote Hosts Access plugin to synchronize project files with remote (S)FTP host. It is clearly stated in the blog entry with a link to Webstorm screencast. However, this screencast suggests using "Create project from existing files" which I cannot find in PyCharm, neither on Quick Start page, nor in the main menu.

This feature is very important for me, because SSHFS + PyCharm is a very, very slow combination.

Could anybody please explain me how to use it?

Hello Alexey,

The wizard is indeed not included in PyCharm, because the concepts and wording

it uses are not fully appropriate for Python projects. However, you can perform

the necessary configuration manually. Go to Settings | Deployment, press

the button to add a server, and configure the server address and directory

mappings as appropriate.

Thank you, this is very useful information.

One more question. For example, I have a working project on remote server, and I would like to continue developing it with PyCharm. Is it true that I should first copy the project contents manually to my hard drive and then set up deployment? In other words, is it possible to make initial import from a remote server?

Hello Alexey,

Yes. In the current version, you have to copy the project manually.
