There are two main ways to install Lambda Stack with PyCharm.

  1. Select New environment using virtualenv, and check the “inherit global site-packages” box.

  2. Select Existing interpreter. Click the “…” button. Choose “System Interpreter” on the left. Then select either python2.7 or python3.6 (3.5 on 16.04).

The easiest way to install pycharm is with snap

sudo snap install pycharm-community --classic
