I had a look at Pyramid a few months ago, got it all working and then left it. I've now returned to do some serious testing and I wonder about the versions of Pyramid available and how, or perhaps if, PyCharm has a mechanism for upgrading to later versions of Pyramid ?
I did not check when I did the initial work but I noted that when I selected a 'Pyramid project' PyCharm installed all the relevant files and dependencies and, as I've mentioned, it ran. Now I have upgraded to PyCharm 2016.1.2 and looking at the version of Pyramid when I create a new Pyramid project I see that it is 1.5.7; checking on the Pylons/Pyramid website shows that 1.6.1 is the latest stable release. Perhaps not a major problem but I would prefer to use the latest version if possible.
Q1 - does PyCharm have any method for getting the latest Pyramid and does it ever check to see if there is a later version available ?
Q2 - (if the answer to Q1 in 'No') would there be any problem if I manually install a later version of Pyramid ? (I cannot find any PyCharm configuration settings that relate to Pyramid and so it may just use what's on the PATH etc , but obviously I don't want to stop it all working)
It does occur to me that the same situation may apply to other frameworks etc. with PyCharm; I'm a long-term IDEA user and in that case there are configuration settings that define versions of tools etc . (I've been using Griffon, Grails etc.) but there seems nothing in PyCharm for the tools that I'm using.
I also notice that there are very few comments to postings in this forum - if this is not the best place for such questions perhaps JetBrains could suggest where I should ask.
Currently PyCharm 2016.1.2 on Xubuntu 14.04; full IDE tools licence
