Code With Me

PyCharm EAP 2020.3 now includes Code with Me features by default. If you are practicing pair programming or teaching Python online, it is definitely a tool you will fall in love with.

As a host you can define the level of permissions you want to grant to your guest users. You can allow others to edit files, access the terminal, and run code in your project. Alternatively, you can limit their access level to only viewing what happens while you are live coding.


Apart from the ability to develop collaboratively, a notable feature of Code With Me is its support of code insight features on the guest side, such as code navigation and autocompletion.

Learn more about Code With Me features in this blog post.


Grazie provides intelligent spelling and grammar checks for text that you write in PyCharm. It recognizes natural language constructs in programming languages (Python, Java, and others), markup languages (Latex, Markdown, XML, and HTML), comments, commit messages, and more.

Grazie can help you check grammar in your text files (for example in To get the most out of it, you can also configure it to check textual elements in your source code such as string literals, comments, or commit messages.

Grazie is set to check English text by default, and you can enable over 15 other languages, including German, Russian, Chinese, and others, by opening Settings/Preferences and selecting Editor > Proofreading.

NOTE: All verification is performed locally, inside your IDE.

Learn more about Grazie’s functionality in the PyCharm Web Help.
