# And add help text after each target name starting with '\#\#'

Enable the equivalent of ./ shell_plus under PyCharm's Django Console.
# Confirmed working under:
# - Python3.7 / Django 2.2 / Django Extensions / IPython Available
# - Python3.7 / Django 2.2 / Django Extensions / IPython Unavailable
# Notices:
# - This might even work in PyCharm CE with the python console, but no guarantees there.
# - There are no language features required that shouldn't be available as far back as python2.6, maybe 2.5.
# - There are no framework features required that shouldn't be available as far back as Django 1.7
# - Should still provide basic Django shell when Django Extensions is unavailable.
# - This is for all of my friends to enjoy!

Python3 Upgrade Notes


  • Don't fork to a new branch, it will be impossible to merge back
  • If only a handful of developers work on the branch, nobody else is comfortable writing python3 when you're ready to go
  • You need to have a two-language compatible codebase


  1. Third-party compatibility first
    • No new dependencies without Py3 support
from decimal import Decimal as D
from numbers import Number
from django.test import TestCase
class Adder(object):
def __init__(self, addend, augend):
if not (isinstance(addend, Number) or isinstance(augend, Number)):
raise TypeError('Adder requires both addend and augend to be Numbers.')
