Pycharm vs Intellij for Vagrant Remote Interpreter


Hi Guys, 

I've been comparing the vagrant remote interpreter features of Pycharm (2016.2.1) vs Intellij. I'm generally an Intellij user and would prefer to use it foremost (Java dev mainly) but I'm having some trouble with a python project that is otherwise working correctly in Pycharm. I was under the impression that the python plugin for Intellij ultimate is equivalent to using Pycharm? If so, I was hoping someone could suggest where I'm going wrong ...

In Pycharm

I've managed to correctly setup my remote interpreter and it's able to see all my installed dependencies:

and it's happily running my tests etc - which is great:

In Intellij

However, the exact same project in Intellij with (what I believe is) an equivalent configuration:

but I get dependency errors throughout my code (which I don't get in PyCharm).

It seems I can't configure the remote sources in the same way. Am I missing something?

Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Hi Matt,

Please try to re-add this interpreter in IntelliJ IDEA and restart the IDE. It seems that there is a bug (I've created the issue that prevents showing Binary Skeletons and Remote Libraries right after adding a remote interpreter.

Great thanks - yes that seems to resolve it.

I'd also managed to workaround, in the time being, by installing some arbitrary missing library (in my case mock) - sorry should've re-posted.

Thanks for looking into it and logging the bug
