Got a fairly general question about how to best set up and use PyCharm. I run on Mac OS 10.7 but use an Ubuntu 10.04 VM run on Parallels. The rational for this setup is that I would like to develop locally and remotely on the same system.
I have noticed the Preference > Deployment pane that allows me to set up a remote host, i.e. connect to my local Parallels Ubuntu VM. But it feels to me as if PyCharm was meant to work locally, i.e. my Django projects located in OS X rather than a remote host?
When I create a new project, PyCharm asks for a local directory. Is there a way for the project directly to be located on a local VM? Or would I have to set up a shared folder? And even if I did set up a shared folder, would all functions of PyCharm be working?
