I've been developing my new app on the RPi itself using the built-in Geany editor. Now I decided I need something better & want to use PYCHARM pro from my PC to manage the poject. I set up the ip addresses, remote compiler (python3 on my rpi), and this seems fine. However, when I try to set up an rpi PYCHARM project, I can't seem to use the folder on my rpi (home/pi/Desktop/pump_controller) for creating a Pycharm project. There are presently 5 python3 .py files in there that together form the project. I can use pycharm to "browse" the rpi (tools/deployment/browse_remote_host) & see & edit the remote files, but not as a PROJECT (they are being treated as independent files, rather than a project "tree").
Is this the limitation of PYCHARM? I was expecting to configure PYCHARM to remotely work on this project, as a project, not just as unrelated "files".
