Setting up PyCharm project with remote interpreter
Setting up a remote interpreter on PyCharm is awfully unintuitive. I've pared it down to what I think is the minimal number of steps, and leaves the fewest number of deployment configurations and Python interpreters lying around. This is designed for my specific configuration (specifically PyTorch); adapt as needed.
Configuring default project (only do after installing PyCharm for the first time):
- (Optional) Add virtual environment path to excluded files
- From Welcome Page, go to Configure > Settings > Build, Execution, Deployment > Deployment > Options
- Add virtualenv path. For example, if you always have the project's virtualenv in
.env, add ";.env" to the "Exclude items by name" field
